A work-related accident can be painful, confusing, and emotional.
If you or a loved one has been injured on the job, it is important to do what is necessary to protect yourself and speak with a qualified Shah Law Group workers’ compensation attorney. Workers’ compensation benefits exist to help those injured in work-related injuries heal, recover, and return the worker back to their pre-injury form, and increase their quality of life. However, the process can often be difficult and time-consuming. One mistake can result in a claim being denied, treatment being denied, or cause even more problems for the injured worker.
How can we help?
Unfortunately, during a workers’ compensation case, your employer’s insurance company may not treat you fairly. You may encounter roadblocks such as a denied claim, requests to see bad doctors, or delayed payments. Your employer may also make it more difficult than necessary for you to obtain fair compensation by failing to submit your claim on time or refusing to corroborate your story. In these situations, our dedicated Shah Law Group workers’ compensation attorneys can help you protect your rights and get the compensation you are entitled to.
When you hire Shah Law Group, you will have someone on your side fighting for you. We will not allow anyone to take advantage of you during the process of obtaining fair and full workers’ compensation benefits. Our workers’ compensation attorneys can negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf, aggressively arguing for a more reasonable compensation payment based on your injuries and related losses. Our team may be able to secure you greater compensation than you could have received alone. If settlement negotiations fail to achieve the desired result, our Shah Law Group workers’ compensation attorneys can take your case to court in order to fight for a better outcome.

Third party claims
Your workers’ compensation case may involve a third-party claim if someone other than your employer negligently caused or contributed to your injuries while you were working or on the job. A third party is an entity that was a factor in causing your injuries to occur, such as being involved in an auto accident while working. An injured worker could have a third-party claim against a product or equipment manufacturer, a subcontractor, a property owner, or driver/owner of a vehicle.
Naming a third party as a defendant in a lawsuit may take assistance from a skilled workers’ compensation attorney. Our lawyers can hire outside investigators and experts to get to the bottom of your case. Whether your serious injury came from a fall, exposure to toxic substances, electric shock, falling objects, structural collapses, a transportation accident, repetitive motion, or a violent crime, we can uncover the truth behind who or what caused the incident to occur. Then, we can seek compensation on your behalf from the at-fault third-party.
Lastly, in every workers’ compensation and/or third-party case, we work solely on a contingency, which means that that we will never collect any attorneys’ fees until and unless we are able to obtain compensation for you.
