Workers' compensation cases are often complicated and drawn out. At Sigman Janssen, we've handled many workers' compensation claims, and we know how to achieve successful verdicts for our clients. When we take on your case, we'll be there to:
Our Appleton workers' compensation lawyers will get in touch with your medical provider to request a copy of your medical records. When we receive the records, we'll review them carefully and ask for a written statement from your doctor confirming your injury.
After we've reviewed your records, we'll file an official request for a hearing with the Wisconsin Workers' Compensation Division. At the hearing, we'll present the facts of your case before a judge.
We'll help set up an appointment for your independent medical exam with a doctor. These appointments are often required by the insurance company. We'll also arrange a functional capacity evaluation to determine your level of flexibility when performing work-related tasks such as lifting, sitting, bending, etc.
If you can't perform the same work as before, our workers' compensation lawyers will arrange for you to meet with a vocational expert who will assess your condition and help you find alternative work.
Once we've taken all the preliminary steps and your case is ready, we'll send a notice to the Wisconsin Workers' Compensation Division to start your hearing.
Just before your hearing, we'll begin negotiating with the insurance company for a settlement. During this time, we'll also keep you informed of the strength of your case and how much we think your case might be worth.
