Maximizing Workers’ Comp Benefits

Cava Law Firm is here to recover the maximum amount of benefits and compensation for your work injury. This task can be challenging. Insurance companies dispute the seriousness of work injuries and other factors in order to reduce your benefits. We are here to prevent that from happening.

Depending on your case, your workers’ comp benefits include:

  • Medical and hospital coverage;
  • Lost-wage replacement;
  • Scarring, disfigurement, and loss of function benefits;
  • Survivors’ and dependents’ benefits; and
  • Vocational rehabilitation.

The amount of benefits you may receive and the length of time you receive them are directly tied to the severity of your injury and your ability to work post-accident. Injured workers with total, permanent disabilities, for example, can receive 66% of their pre-accident weekly wage for as long as they are disabled. Partially disabled workers, however, receive less because they are capable of working.

Denials and Appeals

If your claim has been denied, a workers’ comp lawyer in Holyoke can potentially turn that denial into an acceptance. The appeals process consists of numerous strict rules of procedure. Your Holyoke workers’ compensation attorney will confidently navigate the process and help you present the strongest case for approved benefits.

Our experience and meticulous attention to legal and factual details make us an effective and trusted workers’ comp law firm in Holyoke.
