Our team at Shatford Law comprises of some of the most experienced workers' compensation attorneys, who are committed to helping injured workers and their families cope with the stresses that accompany occupational illnesses, injuries, as well as with the process of filing claims. Fortunately, laws enacted by the state mandate that nearly all employers carry workers’ compensation insurance coverage.
The benefits payable under these policies are to be administered without regard to which party is at fault. Therefore, if a worker is hurt in the course of performing tasks related to his or her employment, or becomes ill due to occupational exposures, then he or she is eligible to file a claim.
It is regrettably the case, however, that employers and insurance companies sometimes attempt to interfere with access to benefits. Whether through a fraudulent denial of benefits or by complicating the process of filing claims, it may be clear that they are not on your side. At Shatford Law we are always on the side of injured workers.

Why Work With an Attorney
Although you do not need legal representation to file a workers’ compensation claim, it is advisable for you to seek help of the specialized workers' compensation attorneys so that you can avoid making costly procedural errors. The failure to meet deadlines or improperly complete paperwork can lead to lengthy delays in the receipt of benefit payments or the loss of your legal claim to those benefits. That is a position in which you do not want to be, and those are mistakes that we can help you minimize. Moreover, if your claim is denied the appeals process will require you to obtain legal counsel.
