Who Can You Go To For Legal Advice?
We have worked with Jeff Dickson on cases involving workers' compensation and feel he has a unique perspective when helping patients. Below is an excerpt from his website along with a few helpful links.
"If you were injured at work in Vermont, or while working for a Vermont employer, you’re probably entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. It is important that you take the steps necessary to obtain the benefits you’re entitled to. Don’t let your employer (or its insurance company) dictate how you heal or what you accept as compensation.
You might be entitled to the following Vermont workers’ compensation benefits: temporary disability benefits (lost wages); permanent disability benefits; medical benefits for treatment and prescriptions; vocational rehabilitation benefits if you can’t do the same job anymore; and death benefits for your spouse and/or children if a work injury takes your life.
The Vermont workers’ compensation process can be very confusing and complicated, with documents that can have a big impact on the benefits you receive. Jeff knows how the insurance companies operate because he used to represent them.
If your Vermont workers’ comp claim has been denied, Jeff will fight for your rights. If your claim has been accepted, he can guide you through the process to ensure you get everything you’re entitled to. Learn more about Vermont workers’ compensation on Jeff’s blog." Jeff Dickson Attorney at Law
