Workplace Accident & Injury Claims in Warwick

In Rhode Island, a worker’s legal fees are almost always paid by the workers’ comp insurance company. When an injured worker seeks legal counsel and is awarded benefits, legal fees are awarded separately and do not decrease the amount of workers’ compensation benefits the worker receives. This makes it all the more important to involve an attorney.

You have everything to gain and nothing to lose in working with an experienced Warwick workers’ compensation lawyer. There are many tricks and traps that injured people fall victim to in their workers’ compensation cases. Many employers still have not accepted legal responsibility for your injury even when you are receiving weekly checks and think everything is being done correctly.

Was the first time I ever had to seek legal representation after a car accident that I was injured in. Rich was recommended to me through a family member, and I am so glad that I decided to be represented by Rich.”

Rich was supportive and helpful throughout a very difficult time for me. I recently got into a car accident where I was injured and my car was declared totaled. In complete panic not knowing what to do, I called Rich.”
