Workers’ Compensation Attorneys: Rhode Island’s Best

Workers’ compensation provides medical and wage benefits to people who are injured or become ill at work. While coverage by employers is a state mandate, wages and other benefits can vary. In general, insurance represents a social contract between management and labor. It protects workers from the loss of livelihood and management from civil suits if workers are injured on the job. But be advised: policy benefits and protections have limitations. When exceptions, arise worker compensation cases may end up in court. If that happens, you’ll need an experienced attorney to handle the contentious legal wrangling between you and your employer.

Workers’ compensation insurance in Rhode Island is taken very seriously. It not only covers workers employed by companies but sometimes extends to contract workers serving in that independent capacity. Businesses failing to provide worker compensation coverage can face severe and costly repercussions, including payment of claims out of pocket, fines, and possible imprisonment. They can also lose the right to conduct business in the state.

How to File a Worker Compensation Claim

  • The injured parties must visit a healthcare professional immediately so a doctor can provide medical reports to support any claims.
  • Employees then begin the claims filing process, being sure to include any state-mandated paperwork or forms.
  • Once the claims are approved, the recipient will receive their compensation payments and can return to work when they feel ready or when a physician has cleared them for service.

Worker compensation forms should be provided by the company or can be found online. While forms are self-explanatory, having an attorney help with their filling out and filing may avoid payment delays. That all sounds straightforward, right? The fact is many cases do not go smoothly. Employers may challenge claims. When that happens, you need an experienced work comp lawyer on your side.

When Do Attorneys Get Involved?

Depending on your needs, you may be entitled to medical compensation, which employers resist. This includes:

  • Hospitalization
  • Surgery
  • Rehabilitative care
  • Prescription medications
  • Vocational rehabilitation services
  • Long-term care

When you retain Calvino Law Associates, we will:

  • Make sure you get the medical treatment needed
  • Make sure you are reimbursed for out-of-pocket expenses for treatment and medication
  • Negotiate settlements and maximize the compensation
  • File appeals when judgments go against you.

Just because your employer carries workers’ comp insurance does not mean their lawyer won’t try to minimize the payout. We help you maximize benefit payouts by offering detailed advice on the proper steps to take to file an effective claim or appeal. Our assistance in gathering all necessary information, including medical records, accident and incident reports, and medical opinions, is critical to a successful claim.

Claim Appeals

Common reasons why claims are denied include:

  • Failure to notify your employer of your condition within thirty days
  • The insurer believes your injuries do not impact your ability to work
  • The claimant has a pre-existing condition
  • Lack of supporting medical documentation
  • Committing a crime at the time of your injury
  • Being under the influence of drugs or alcohol when injured
  • Violating your company’s code of conduct
  • Errors in paperwork filing
  • Being under the influence of drugs and alcohol when injured

Find The Best Personal Injury Attorney in Providence, RI

Personal injury comes in a lot of different forms. If you get injured—physically or mentally—you have a right to compensation. Don’t let anyone tell you that you are not. However, receiving the monetary damages you deserve depends on the lawyer who handles your case. Taking cases to court can be highly stressful, not to mention confusing. Without the proper legal representation, you are as likely to lose the judgment as you are to receive inadequate monetary compensation even if you “win.” Our advice is to never put your personal injury fortunes in the hands of anyone but the most qualified personal injury attorney…ever.

Personal injury cases represent a good portion of those filed in civil court. Personal injury attorneys deal with a wide variety of cases from injuries resulting from the actions of others. The types of personal injuries can be a result of a variety of situations.

Basic Types of Personal Injury Cases

Examples of personal injury cases include:

  • Motor Vehicle Accidents
  • Medical Malpractice 
  • Wrongful Death 
  • Workplace Accident 
  • Premises Liability 
  • Products Liability

What To Look for in a Personal Injury Attorney

There are several traits an excellent attorney will have, including:

  • A good listener. If your attorney doesn’t seem interested in what you have to say, you’re probably getting “one-size-fits-all” representation.
  • Responsive. When you call to check on things, are they hard to contact or fail to respond promptly?
  • Thorough. When you get to court, is your lawyer missing important information and documents?
  • Assertive. The person representing you should be a tough, take-charge type adept at winning personal injury cases.
  • Competent. The attorney should be well-versed in Rhode Island and Southern New England laws. Every district has its rules and regulations. Make sure your lawyer is familiar with them.
  • Courtroom savvy. Not all lawyers do well in the courtroom. Some may be very familiar with the law and quite capable but do not present themselves as convincing when arguing a case.
  • Respected by peers. Lawyers are a tight-knit group of professionals. Ask around and see what other lawyers think of your attorney. Better yet, check and see how many cases they have won.
  • Caring. It may sound inappropriate when discussing legal matters, but you want the person representing you to be sensitive to your injuries and the hardship they have caused you or your family.
