About the Workers' Comp Process
From slip and fall injuries to toxic materials exposure, you will want
to report any on-the-job injury as soon as possible.
You must give notice within 30 days of the accident (If it is an occupational disease, you must report it one year from the
date that you knew or should have known about your condition). The notice
must include the time and place where the accident occurred and the nature
of the injury.
If you successfully obtain workers' compensation, it will most likely cover:
- Medical costs
- Temporary or permanent disability payments
- Permanent impairment costs
- Death benefits to an employee's surviving dependents
- Lost wages
The waiting period for workers’ compensation benefits is either 32
hours or four days of lost wages. The claimant will need to choose a physician
who can confirm the injuries and help file the claim with the workplace.
This is especially true if you have suffered repetitive motion injuries
or back and neck damage from a desk job.
It will take a medical expert’s help to establish that work is to
blame for your injury, and not a preexisting condition. An experienced
Billings workers’ comp attorney can help you cover all your legal bases.
Was your workers' comp claim denied?

In the state of Montana, workers' compensation is compulsory. North
Dakota mandates that all workplaces carry this no-fault insurance. This
means that if you file a legitimate workers' compensation claim, you
should collect fair benefits. This is true even if you share some blame
for your accident.
If your claim is denied, this also means that you have legal options. If your claim is unnecessarily declined or your employer refuses to provide
you with workers' compensation benefits, I am prepared to help. I
formerly worked as a defense lawyer, so I can anticipate the other side's
strategies. With my experience and legal skills, I know how to effectively
challenge the denial in court.
