Who qualifies for benefits
Collectively, Americans work more hours every year than any other industrialized country on the planet. Workers in the United States also have certain rights pertaining to the safety of their workplace and the compensation they can receive if they are injured on the job. If you’ve sustained a workplace injury, whether it occurred on-site or in any capacity that is work-related, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.

TTD, PPI, PTD… What do all these abbreviations mean?
When you are injured at work in Alaska, your employer/insurer is required to pay you certain benefits. These are grouped into two types: indemnity benefits and medical benefits. Here’s the breakdown.
Team up with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney
Workers’ compensation cases are serious, complicated, and often overwhelming. It is important to have an informed attorney on your side.
Workplace injuries can be physically and emotionally disabling. The quicker we can handle your case and meet your goals, the quicker you can be on the road to recovery.
Will hiring an attorney reduce my benefits?
The short answer is no. The law provides that an employee’s attorney’s fees are paid by the employer/insurer if the attorney is successful in obtaining benefits for the employee. These fees are never taken from your benefits, and you will not be responsible for paying any attorney’s fees.
Which Alaskan communities do you serve?
We diligently pursue workers’ compensation benefits on behalf of our clients statewide. We can also help you if you were injured in Alaska but have moved out of state.
I received a controversion notice. What should I do now?
A controversion notice is a formal denial of some or all of your workers’ compensation benefits. To pursue benefits denied under a controversion notice, you must file a workers’ compensation claim and present evidence to the workers’ compensation board to prove your case. Contact us so we can help you through the complete litigation process.
The insurance company made me a settlement offer. What should I do?
Depending on your circumstances, settling your case may be in your best interest. Let us help you negotiate a fair settlement to provide you the compensation you need to get back on your feet.
