For the unrepresented worker, the workers’ compensation process can be very difficult to manage. Insurance adjusters and doctors are usually unsympathetic to your injury and your situation, now that you have been injured. In fact, it is even sometimes hard to get an insurance adjuster to call you back to get a bill paid or get an appointment with a doctor. At the Law Office of Gregory L. Groth, we help with issues such as these. We know how to deal with the insurance adjusters and doctors so that we can get your case handled as quickly as possible and hopefully get you back to work. If your injury is so serious that you will not return to work, then we can process your claim quickly and get you the money that you will need to compensate you for your impairment. Many times, if you are totally disabled from working we can get permanent disability benefits until you reach retirement age.
