Battling with workers comp.
I hired Trenchard and Hoskins after I was denied my back surgery, the day of pre-op, after being approved two weeks prior. It took almost two years to get my back worked on. Then another battle over the second surgery, which took an year and a half to be approved. Third surgery was simple no hassles. Then a couple more times over ridiculous issues that w/c had about some meds I was taking. That resulted in going to a mediation with a judge that sided with me. Mr Hoskins had to step in again because of their (w/c) tactics and I had my issues finally resolved. I would recommend Royce Hoskins to help you with the battles to come, when dealing with workers compensation insurance. He explained the laws and was understanding to my situation. He did his job!

Workmanship Comp case
He handled my case with professionalism. His knowledge and expertise on workman comp cases is excellent and took my case when many other attorneys declined! Highly recommend.

Excellent Choice
I couldn't have made a better choice in hiring Royce for my Worker's Comp case. Did an outstanding job in both sides of it (lawsuit & comp). He has even continued to to make sure that my medical is taken of, long after the settlement was issued. Dogged & determined, he has made sure that, if I had to do it all over again, I'd still choose him. His knowledge of opposing counsels & how the judges typically will decide put him over the top.

Couldn't be MORE pleased!
We retained Mr. Hoskins and his firm to handle a very delicate and heart wrenching incident for us and he handled it swiftly and with great care. Mr. Hoskins made sure all the bases were covered so that we wouldnt have to deal with the situation repeatedly. He was easy to contact, readily available and swift acting. In addition to Mr. Hoskins' astute professionalism and decorum, his office staff was also phenomenal!

Cares about the workers rights
Royce did a great job of walking me through the settlement process of my work-related injury. When the insurance company offered to settle my case and walk away, he made sure they had to keep my medicals open so I would get life-time medical care for my injury. Be smart and call Royce!

Workers compensation
I was injured on the job, on company property and my employer had to called an ambulance. After spending three weeks in a hospital (out of town). My employer fought picking up the medical bills. Because of COVID the courts were shut down, so it was a long process. Royce walked me through the process and got the bills paid. Thanks to his efforts a satisfactory settlement was reached.
