OREGON WORKERS' COMPENSATION
INJURED AT WORK? HAVE A WORKERS' COMP RELATED QUESTION? CALL (503) 472-5156 OR COMPLETE THE FORM BELOW TO TALK WITH AN ATTORNEY FOR FREE. OUR FIRM REPRESENTS INJURED WORKERS STATEWIDE.
Use of this form does not create an attorney-client relationship with our firm. Please ask questions of a general nature only and do not include information you consider private.
Have you recently been injured on the job, but had your claim denied by the insurance company? Do you have an accepted claim, yet the insurance company is not providing the benefits to which you are entitled? If so, then schedule an appointment with the professionals at Lake & Hart. Our firm accepts cases statewide in Oregon. Initial consultations are available in person or via telephone and after hours consultations are considered.
Please be advised that under Oregon law, injured workers make no initial out-of-pocket payments for attorney fees. Rather, your attorney is paid by the insurance company if you prevail in a contested case, or proportionally out of certain claim benefits the attorney assists you in obtaining. Do not go it alone - the insurance company certainly has access to legal counsel as well as many other resources at their disposal. Hire an attorney at Lake & Hart to help guide you through the complicated workers' compensation process.
Keep in mind that claim denials and other decisions issued by your insurance company have time periods within which to appeal. If you fail to timely appeal, your chances of prevailing in a matter significantly decline.
Our professionals can assist you with:
- Initial compensability denials of an injury or occupational disease;
- Aggravation denials;
- Denials of new or omitted medical condition claims;
- Mental stress claim denials;
- Claim closures;
- Medical service denials;
- Time loss benefits;
- Permanent disability benefits;
- Vocational rehabilitation benefits; and
- Evaluation of workers' compensation settlements, including disputed claim settlements (DCS), claim disposition agreements (CDA) and stipulations.
