Our firm has been at the forefront of advancing and earning all benefits an injured worker may be entitled to. In the case of Caldwell v. Delta Express, we established that in the calculating of the workers’ compensation benefits of a truck driver, the per diem pay (per day allowance paid for food and other costs) was included. This was a huge win for the worker.
On another case involving a truck driver where the insurance company denied the claim, we won at trial and on appeal and forced the payment of all benefits, including: off work pay, reimbursement of out-of-pocket costs, all medical bills and a fair final payment for the worker’s disability.
Insurance companies may not have your own best interests in mind. We suggest to you that often insurance companies are focused on the bottom line. However, you have rights that only an experienced attorney can tell you about. Don’t be taken advantage of. If you are being denied benefits, whether it is medical or other, call The Lichtenegger Law Firm.
