Workers' Compensation Claims in Vermont

Representing Injured Vermonters for Over 35 Years

Vermont law protects you if you are injured while doing your job. Even though your employer is required to provide you with a safe working environment, accidents and injuries still happen. If you were injured at work, or work caused your injury or contributed to it, you have certain rights under the law. Our Vermont workers’ compensation attorneys help you to fight for your rights and benefits.

Supporting You When Insurance Companies Do Not

Insurance companies are for-profit businesses and their goal is to keep their costs down. They do not go out of their way to tell injured workers about all the benefits they may be owed. Some are better than others, but none are looking out for the injured worker.

You should understand that:

  • Insurance adjusters will never explain exactly what you could get in your claim
  • Injured workers often do not realize they can pick their own doctor after the first visit to a company doctor
  • Doctors hired by insurance companies are not necessarily on your side. They can and do give opinions that help the insurance company pay fewer benefits in your claim
  • Even if the insurer pays you a lump sum or “settlement”, your claim is not necessarily “closed.” You are likely entitled to further medical and other benefits if your injury develops complications or worsens in the future. Never sign off on your claim without talking to us. It costs nothing to talk to us and it could get you a lot of money

When to Talk to a Workers’ Compensation Attorney

Even if your workers’ compensation claim is accepted, don’t be fooled! Work injury cases are complicated and your employer’s insurance company has every incentive to offer you just enough money that you don’t want to risk losing it. This means you could be missing out on thousands of dollars that you are entitled to!

Call for a free evaluation of your claim if:

  • Any part of your workers’ compensation claim has been denied for any reason
  • You need help understanding your rights after a work injury
  • It feels like no one is on your side, and you want to make sure you are not being taken advantage of
  • You believe you may be entitled to additional benefits but you are not sure
  • You were treated for a workplace injury but were unable to return to work
  • You were treated for a workplace injury and returned to work but do not remember receiving “permanent impairment” benefits (also called “permanency”)
