Workers' Compensation

Jeff can help with your Vermont work injury.

If you were injured at work in Vermont, or while working for a Vermont employer, you’re probably entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. It is important that you take the steps necessary to obtain the benefits you’re entitled to.  Don’t let your employer (or its insurance company) dictate how you heal or what you accept as compensation.

You might be entitled to the following Vermont workers’ compensation benefits: temporary disability benefits (lost wages); permanent disability benefits; medical benefits for treatment and prescriptions; vocational rehabilitation benefits if you can’t do the same job anymore; and death benefits for your spouse and/or children if a work injury takes your life.

The Vermont workers’ compensation process can be very confusing and complicated, with documents that can have a big impact on the benefits you receive. Jeff knows how the insurance companies operate because he used to represent them.

If your Vermont workers’ comp claim has been denied, Jeff will fight for your rights.  If your claim has been accepted, he can guide you through the process to ensure you get everything you’re entitled to. Learn more about Vermont workers’ compensation on Jeff’s blog.

Personal Injury

Don't let the insurance company avoid its responsibilities.

If you or a family member was injured by someone else’s negligence, you need an attorney to make sure you’re fairly compensated. Whether a car accident, an icy walkway, or a broken stair caused your injury, Jeff can help you negotiate with the responsible party’s insurance company to obtain just compensation. You and your family may be entitled to damages for pain and suffering, emotional distress, medical bills, lost income, lost earning capacity, loss of consortium, and/or other less obvious injuries.  Jeff can help persuade the insurance company that you’re entitled to compensation.

They will often present an early settlement offer which is attractive when you need the money, but which doesn’t consider the lasting effects of your injury. Jeff will help evaluate your claim so that you have all the information you need to make an informed decision. If necessary, Jeff will file suit to help you collect the damages you deserve. But don’t wait too long to ask Jeff for help — Vermont law only allows a limited time to file suit.
