VSEA Workers' Compensation Lawyers in Vermont

Fighting to Protect the Rights of State Employees

State workers help maintain the proper functioning of Vermont’s infrastructure, from road work to the court system and law enforcement. But the work can lead to situations that put the State worker in harm’s way. Whether working with heavy machinery and materials or in the crossfire of crime, Vermont State workers can suffer injuries and illnesses that may entitle them to workers’ compensation benefits. Over the past almost forty years, Biggam Fox Skinner has successfully handled hundreds of cases for State workers and VSEA members. Let our Vermont State workers’ compensation attorneys help you navigate this time. We are an Advantage Program Service.

Reverse the State’s Poor Decisions

At Biggam Fox Skinner, we will help you reverse wrong decisions made by PMA, the insurer now handling all of the State of Vermont workers’ compensation claims.

These decisions can include:

  • Taking the full 21 days to accept or deny your claim when it is clear that you were hurt at work
  • Saying they didn’t receive your medical records when you know they did
  • Not reimbursing your mileage for going to appointments (maybe not even telling you about this benefit)

Injuries Sustained by State Workers

Perhaps you are unable to work because of a mishap with a loader, cement mixer, or scaffolding, or an accident involving a weapon, a criminal assault, or chemical exposure. You may have spine, neck, or back injuries from a motor vehicle accident suffered while working for a State agency. Or perhaps you fell at work, or you have a long-term illness, such as heart disease, from sedentary or high-stress work. Maybe you worked in a sick building. You may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits for any of these injuries and illnesses.

There are several common workplace injuries for Vermont State workers, such as:

  • Neck, spine, and lower back pain
  • Arthritis
  • Orthopedic injuries to upper or lower extremities
  • Brain trauma
  • Fractures or broken bones
