Need Help? Need Medical Care or Counseling and Your Employer or Its Workers’ Compensation Insurance Company Won’t Help You?

What do you do if you or a loved one is in need of medical care or counseling, but your employer or its workers’ compensation insurer is refusing to help?  This is a problem encountered by injured workers on a daily basis.  Often times, it might take days, weeks or months to properly secure benefits from the workers’ compensation insurance company.  We will help injured workers with their workers’ compensation claims.  We have the experience and dedication to handle the legal aspects of your workers’ compensation claim.  

Most of the time, injured workers need physical and or emotional attention right away. Volunteers and non-profit organizations are so important in our communities.  Often times, there are free or discount clinics which can provide much-needed medical care.  We support the mission of these organizations.  We have helped so many clients and families with obtaining critical services.  We want to help you in your time of need.  

If you cannot afford medical care and you need medical care, you might want to reach out to one of the following medical providers.  Ask them if they can help you or if they know another medical provider who might be able to help you.
