We promise to stand by you every step of the way. Some of our services include:

  • QME Physician Selection – The right doctor can make all the difference in getting the time and medical services needed to recover from a workplace injury. We will help you navigate the process of finding the right QME (Qualified Medical Evaluator) for your workers’ compensation case.
  • New MPN Treating Doctor – If you are not satisfied with the doctor treating you through your employer’s MPN (Medical Provider Network), we will help you through the important and sometimes complicated process of switching to a new doctor that you are more comfortable with.
  • DWC – 1 Claim Form – Reporting your injury and filing a claim are key actions to take following a workplace injury. We will help you file your paperwork and build a strong case.
  • Denied Claims – Workers’ compensation claims may be denied for any number of reasons. But it’s far from the end of the road. We will help you understand why your workers’ compensation claim was denied and file an appeal to ensure that you receive the benefits you deserve.
  • Utilization Review Denials – In the event that the utilization review does not consider your medical treatment as necessary for recovery from your workplace injury, we will analyze the decision and help you dispute it with appeals—or in court if necessary.
  • Death Claims and Dependency Determinations – If you’ve suffered the loss of a loved one through a work-related accident, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation death benefits.  We can help guide you through the workers’ comp system and fight on your behalf for the compensation you’re entitled to.
