Parker Workers’ Compensation Lawyers
Maximizing Your Claim
Accidents can happen and are a fact of life. Fortunately, when they occur
on the job, you are likely eligible to obtain workers’ compensation
benefits through your employer’s insurer. This type of no-fault
insurance has been established by law to help those injured at work be
compensated. This compensation takes the financial burden off your shoulders
while you are recovering. The benefits provide the medical care you need
to reach maximum medical improvement, as well as partial wage reimbursement
when you are unable to return to the job during your recovery period.
Getting the benefits you deserve through worker’s compensation insurance
is a precise process that must be followed. Ensuring that your claim is
done according to law and with sufficient and correct documentation can
be confusing and difficult. At Clawson & Clawson, LLP, we are deeply
familiar with and practiced in handling and defending these claims, as
well as making necessary appeals when a claim has been wrongfully denied.
Backed by over a century of combined legal experience shared by our attorneys,
we are a strong force to put behind your claim. We will seek the maximum
amount of compensation possible in your case.

Workers’ Compensation Claims
Under workers’ compensation law, you are entitled to receive as much
reasonable medical treatment that is needed to help you recover to “medical
maximum improvement.” This can include emergency room visits, hospitalization,
lab tests, surgery, medical equipment, prescription medication, and rehabilitative
You are also entitled to receive disability benefits that will be based
on the type and extent of your injury or illness. Disabilities are categorized
into four groups based on whether your disability is temporary or permanent,
as well as whether it is partial or total.
The benefits available in these four groups include financial compensation
amounting to two-thirds of your weekly earnings. In the case of permanent
partial disability, compensation is based on an impairment rating that
assigns a percentage of disability to your condition, with a cap on what
is maximally available overall. Our team can work with you to ensure that
your claim is calculated correctly and completed with full documentation.
Why Representation for Claims is Needed
Benefits are often denied based on mistakes in documentation, in meeting
deadlines, due to seeking unauthorized medical help, or due to the insurer’s
claims that your injury or illness was a preexisting condition or occurred
outside of the work environment. It is also important to remember that
for-profit insurance companies will often do whatever they can to reduce
their payouts or deny claims. By retaining the services of an experienced
attorney, your chances of succeeding in your claim will be greatly enhanced.
