Common Workers’ Compensation Questions:
How Much Is My Case Worth?
Knowing the amount of benefits you are entitled to can only be determined after you have seen a doctor — one who is independent of the insurance company. At English Lloyd & Armenta, we will work closely with your treating doctor to understand the impact your injury will have on your life. We then pursue the maximum benefits possible.
How Long Will I Get Workers’ Comp Benefits?
Your workers’ compensation benefits will last until your doctor determines you have reached “maximum medical improvement” (MMI). Once your doctor decides it is safe for you to return to work, your benefits will end. This is why it is important to choose your doctor wisely, make sure it is someone you trust, who is looking out for your health and not the financial interests of the insurance company.
How Much Will It Cost To Hire An Attorney?
At English Lloyd & Armenta, we provide free consultations to all of our clients — it will cost you nothing to meet with us and discuss your rights. If you choose to hire us, the costs of proving your benefits are paid at the end of the case from the awarded benefits, and are approved by the court. The funds are then issued by the insurance company, not by you.
