    Nope. It is a work related injury regardless of what shoes she is wearing and her employer's insurance company should pay for medical treatment and lost wages. She should speak with a workers compensation attorney to go over the details of her case. Most of us offer free consultations.

    Social Security and its impact on Workers Compensation and vice versa can get a bit complicated. An attorney would need to know the complete facts and circumstances of your wife's claim before an complete answer could be given. I would highly recommend that you speak with a qualified workers compensation attorney before signing any of the settlement documents. We offer free consultations 404-845-7953

    I would make the legal argument that you are being paid less do to the on the job injuries you sustained. If successful this would force the employer or their insurance company to pay for that time difference. You should really speak about this issue with your current attorney. However, if he is not returning your calls that may be a different story. We offer free consultations 404-845-7953

    A number of things could happen. However, it is unlikely that you case would be "thrown out" at such an early stage. Especially with them already offering $25k. Chances are if you hire an attorney the offer would increase. I would be happy to speak with you about your case to understand all the facts. We offer free consultations. 678-825-5430.

    It would not surprise me at all if your company terminated you because of your work related accident. Unfortunately, this happens all too often. The good thing is that you came to the right place. A workers compensation attorney will be able to help you in this situation, and at least from the little you shared this far, it seems like you have a good case. You should speak with a workers compensation attorney immediately. We offer free consultations 404-845-7953.

    A suspended registration can result in a suspension of your drivers license. I would be very careful how you approach any plea and suggest you contact an attorney.
