Reasons to hire an attorney for a workers’ compensation claim:

  • 1. The workers’ compensation system is complex, confusing, and often difficult to navigate.
  • 2. We will look out for your best interests, fight on your behalf against the insurance carrier to maximize your benefits, and make sure your questions are answered.
  • 3. In some cases, you may be entitled to a financial award, even if you did not miss any time from work as a result of your work-related injury.
  • 4. The insurance carrier will have a team of attorneys working on their behalf, having an attorney fighting on your behalf helps to level the playing field.

Please call Kristin Allen at Dolce Panepinto 585-815-9003 for any of your workers’ compensation needs.
