Did You Experience A Work-Related Injury?
If your insurance company or employer does not play fair after being injured on the job, you need the right legal assistance to help fight for your compensation.
What Is Workers' Compensation?
Workers' Compensation, also known as Workers' Comp, is a system that provides financial compensation to individuals to cover expenses such as medical bills, lost income, physical therapy, and vocational training for employees who suffered a work-related injury or illness.
There are a number of different types of Workers' Compensation benefits. Workers' Comp claims can be exceedingly complicated, with time-consuming processes that are difficult to navigate without the help of an experienced attorney. If you've been injured on the job, the attorneys at Janet, Janet, & Suggs, LLC can help you recover lost wages & income, medical & vocational rehabilitation costs, new job training expenses & settlement payments at the end of your case. Don't suffer in silence -- let us help you today!
Navigating The Workers' Comp. Process
Filing a workers' compensation claim can be a difficult, complicated process. Insurance companies may not disclose all of the benefits that you may be entitled to should you be injured on the job.
Generally, workers’ compensation is regarded as a substitute for any lawsuit filed by an employee against their employer. However, if the benefits you are entitled to through workers compensation are not enough to meet your needs, our nation-wide team of lawyers can help your pursue alternative options.

Why You Should Hire An Experienced Workers' Compensation Attorney
While there is no requirement that you hire an experienced workers' compensation attorney to file a claim, there are several situations where it may be advantageous to do so:
Completing Claim Forms
Most workers' compensation filing forms are lengthy and in-depth, with complicated questions and unclear date requirements. These forms often ask for a great deal of information. By having an experienced attorney work with you to complete them, you maximize your chances of filing on-time, having your claim accepted and obtaining all of the compensation to which you are entitled.
Handling Employer Disputes
If your claim is disputed by your employer or your employer's insurance company, you will be required to provide detailed documentation, including medical records, to support your claim and resolve the dispute. An experienced attorney will know exactly what information to provide in order to satisfy these requests and help you to realize a positive outcome.
Appealing Denied Claims
Regardless of the merits of your workers' compensation claim, some employers or insurance companies will deny it, hoping that the complex, time-consuming appeal process will deter you from moving forward. An attorney can help you navigate this process, ensure you have provided all necessary documentation to support your claim and maximize your chances of a positive result.
Securing A Fair & Reasonable Settlement
In any workers' compensation case, you are the only person fighting for the compensation you deserve. It is important to remember that your employer, your employer's insurance company and the judge approving the settlement are not advocating for you or your best interests.
Obtaining Permanent Partial Disability
If you have suffered a severe, life-altering injury that prevents you from returning to your previous job or ever working again, you may be entitled to weekly disability payments for life. However, insurance companies will do everything possible to avoid paying these benefits. An experienced attorney can help to ensure that you receive this additional compensation if you are entitled to it.
