Have You Been Denied Benefits?
Many people are shocked and discouraged when their employer’s workers’ compensation insurance provider denies their claim. Getting hurt at work can be a terrifying experience. Not only must you deal with physical discomfort and mental stress, now you have to worry about how your accident will affect your job and your career.
A denial of benefits usually feels like a slap in the face – the last thing you need when you’re already going through so much. Other times, workers become understandably frustrated when their employer’s workers’ compensation insurance carrier unreasonably delays processing their claim or paying out their benefits.
Insurance companies are subject to penalties for unreasonable delays. At the Rich Firm, PC, we aggressively pursue workers’ compensation penalty cases on behalf of our clients. Although you have the right to appeal a denial of benefits on your own, you can greatly improve your chances of a successful outcome by working with experienced workers’ compensation lawyers.

This approach has earned the Rich Firm, PC a reputation as one of the most formidable workers’ compensation law firms in Virginia, Maryland, and the Washington DC region. Workers’ compensation claims can be difficult, challenging, and complex.
We know exactly what we’re up against, and we are not intimidated by insurance companies or their tactics. They are out to underpay and deny workers’ compensation claims. We are out to safeguard the rights of America’s workforce.
Get the Workers’ Compensation Benefits You Deserve
Depending on the nature and severity of your injury, you may be entitled to a variety of workers’ compensation benefits. Our lawyers will examine the facts surrounding your work-related accident and help you determine which benefits apply to your case. These benefits include:
- Medical payments. Your workers’ compensation benefits may include money to cover your medical bills, prescription costs, rehabilitation expenses, and other health care-related expenses.
- Temporary disability. If your injury forces you to take time off work, you may be entitled to payments to help you cover your expenses while you recover. Temporary disability payments include benefits for temporary partial disability and temporary total disability.
- Permanent disability. In some cases, an on-the-job injury prevents a worker from ever returning to work. Permanent disability benefits can extend for a lifetime in appropriate cases. As with temporary disability, payments for permanent disability include both permanent partial disability and permanent total disability.
- Death benefits. In the most tragic cases, a work accident claims a worker’s life. In these cases, the worker’s family members may be entitled to death benefits to compensate the family for the loss of the worker’s financial support.
You work hard. You shouldn’t have to bear the burden of medical bills and other expenses related to a work accident. If you were injured in a work-related accident, our lawyers will work just as hard to make sure you get the maximum amount of workers’ compensation benefits available.
