Standing Up For Injured Workers

Workers Compensation

Has a back or neck disc injury made it difficult or impossible for you to do your job? Has the workers' comp insurance company denied or cut off benefits or payments? Is your doctor recommending more treatment or surgery, but the IME doctor has sent you back to work? Are you worried you might lose your job for filing a workers' compensation claim?

At McCormick Law Office in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, we provide compassionate counsel and strong representation to clients seeking workers' compensation benefits. In every case we handle, it is our primary goal to maximize your recovery so you can concentrate on getting back to work.

Lifting And Herniated Discs

Led by Attorney Dan McCormick, our law firm is adept at resolving complex workers' compensation cases involving loss of earning capacity due to bulging and herniated intervertebral discs. These painful back, neck and disc injuries are often from a heavy lifting incident and result in sciatica or radiating pain down a leg or arm. Our clients include workers from construction: laborer, mason, carpenter, iron worker, HVAC, fire sprinkler installation, electrician, plumber, drywaller, tile and marble installer, roofer and landscaping; from manufacturing: factory, truck drivers, shipping and receiving, loading dock, mechanics, maintenance, press operator, and painter; and in health care: nurses, CNAs and nurses aides.

In addition, we have successfully pursued workers' compensation benefits for workers from all walks of life, including salesmen, manufacturers' representatives, waitresses and chefs. Back and neck injuries are called nonscheduled, meaning loss of earning capacity benefits are available, in addition to permanent partial disability and/or vocational retraining.

Workers' Comp For Degenerative Workplace Injuries

We have significant experience assisting clients in their efforts to obtain workers' compensation benefits for occupational injuries and/or diseases that develop over time. In most cases these injuries are the result of long-term job duties (physical labor resulting in a bad back) or exposure to an unhealthy work environment (asbestos resulting in mesothelioma or asbestosis).

Our skilled work comp lawyers and staff will help you receive the benefits for the medical attention you need, including spine specialists, MRIs, X-rays, physical therapy and medication. We can also help you obtain financial compensation by filing for temporary total disability (TTD), temporary partial disability (TPD), permanent partial disability (PPD) and permanent total disability (PTD).

It is unlawful for employers in Wisconsin to terminate an employee because they have filed a workers' compensation claim. If you have suffered a serious workplace or work-related injury, an experienced workers' comp lawyer can make a difference in helping obtain the benefits to which you are entitled.
