And ensuring that you are getting all of the benefits you are entitled to while you may be in pain and trying to recover and return to work can add even more stress to an already aggravating situation. We can help. We can also help you determine whether you have grounds to file a lawsuit against a third party or even against your employer. If you do, you may be able to recover damages for lost income, medical expenses, and pain and suffering.
