A Workers’ Compensation Attorney Providing Trusted Advice And Representation
Getting injured on the job impacts more than just your physical health. It can trigger fears about your long-term job prospects and your ability to provide for your family. Vermont law requires all employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance, but taking advantage of these benefits is not always as easy or as straightforward as it should be.
If you suffered a workplace injury and need to seek workers’ compensation, contact Adamski Law PLLC for knowledgeable and experienced legal help. I have more than 20 years of legal experience guiding clients though this often-complex system, and I can help you, too.
Why It’s A Good Idea To Hire An Attorney
Let me start with an honest statement: You shouldn’t need an attorney’s help to qualify for workers’ compensation benefits. The system was intended to make it easy for injured workers to receive financial help and to protect employers against personal injury litigation filed by their workers. Unfortunately, laws and practices have changed over time to give much more power to employers and insurers, both of whom want to protect their bottom lines by limiting or denying claims.
The law doesn’t require you to hire an attorney. But the system is complex enough and subjective enough that the average worker has a very difficult time navigating it alone. A skilled attorney can be a huge help.
When you contact my firm, I can guide you through all aspects of your case, including:
- Helping you fulfill reporting requirements and deadlines
- Helping you present a strong application for benefits
- Collecting medical documentation to support your claim
- Representing you at all necessary levels of appeal (if your initial claim is denied)
- Informing you of your rights so that your employer or the insurance company cannot take undue advantage of you
Too often, legitimate claims are denied for dubious reasons and workers don’t know what to do next. Having an attorney in your corner can make it much easier to keep pushing for the benefits you need and are legally entitled to.
Representing Workers From All Walks Of Life
While some professions are inherently more dangerous than others, a workplace injury can occur anywhere. I represent Vermonters from all industries, including (but not limited to):

- Factory and industrial workers
- Office and corporate work
Whether your injury was the result of a one-time accident or accumulated through months or years of strain, you deserve financial assistance while recovering from that injury. I want to help you claim it.
