A family member recommended that I go see Jeff Powers at Powers Law Group. I had been hurt while working for my company that I had worked for over 22 years. I didn’t want to file a workers’ compensation case because I wanted to go back to work, but I did need help with the car accident situation. We were filing a claim against my own uninsured insurance policy because the person who caused the accident left the scene and didn’t have any insurance. My insurance company was absolutely ridiculous to deal with. I had been insured with them for years and they certainly were not around to help me when I got hurt through no fault of my own. In fact, they offered less than $5,000 to settle my case. My lawyer also had to fight with my workers comp insurer who tried to subrogate the money I was entitled to from my own automobile insurance policy. Mr. Powers’ firm filed a lawsuit, served discovery, took depositions and got the case ready to go to trial. Then my personal auto insurance company agreed to pay $62,500 to settle my case which was more than $12,500 of my policy limits. My medical bills and lost wages from work were paid by my job insurance.
I had not considered getting a lawyer when I was first injured and Started a workmans comp claim. just a few months into my treatment I started to realize that I was not being treated very fairly by my boss, the doctors, or the insurance company.
I had worked for the same company for almost 23 years. I fell down at work and hit my head. A clot formed on my brain and I ended up having surgery at the hospital to remove the clot. Despite having memory and speech problems, the doctor who operated on me sent me back to work without any restrictions. I couldn’t believe that he did that. I also had a shoulder problem and had surgery on my shoulder too. The workers compensation insurance company offered me $6,000 to settle my case. That’s when I decided I should talk to a lawyer. Another lawyer said I should meet with Jeff Powers of Powers Law Group. Mr. Powers and Mr. Beecher did an outstanding job. They were always available to talk and help me and my husband get through this process. Powers Law Group found a new doctor for me who would listen and treat my pain. I did not believe that the employer’s doctor thought of my interests. Powers Law Group was able to successfully settle my case for a total package of $209,000 which included a Medicare Set Aside Account.
We highly recommend Jeff Powers to anyone in need of an attorney. He is trustworthy, knowledgeable, and truly concerned for your welfare. We were recommended to Jeff by the attorney handling my accident case. We never knew we would need a worker’s compensation attorney but Jeff was willing to be there if we did. It turned out we did need him.
Adam and Jeff did a great job on my workers compensation case. When I first got hurt, the employer would not let me see a different doctor and kept discouraging me from filing a workers comp claim. I had never been injured at work.
