Our Practice Areas
If you’ve been injured on the job, you may be wondering what your next steps are. We can help you navigate the workers compensation system and get the benefits you deserve. In order to obtain workers comp, it’s important to know who is going to pay for it. Your employer pays a percentage of your weekly wage while you’re out of work because of a work-related injury or illness. Some companies provide health insurance as well which could mean paying a copay or coinsurance each time you go in for treatment.
In order to collect disability payments through your employer’s disability insurance plan, you need medical documentation that shows that there is no medical reason why you cannot return to work in a similar position with similar duties. Once this has been established, it should take about four weeks before receiving the first check from the insurer. Generally, it takes six months before an employee will qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) if they have not reached their retirement age.
Injuries such as those caused by falls, injuries sustained during a car accident, or injuries from a workplace accident often result in different treatments than other types of illnesses such as cancer. With so many variables at play when pursuing disability claims, it is always best to speak with an attorney who specializes in the subject area.

Frequently Asked Questions
How can financial compensation help me during a personal injury crisis?
When you are going through the aftermath of a personal injury accident, you are likely wondering how you will ever be able to move on. It’s true that personal injury cases are not designed to charge the liable party with criminal charges. However, it can help you to get the compensation that you need to allow you to move on from the accident and move forward with your life. You may find that a successful claim allows you to cover damages such as pain and suffering, lost income, property damage, emotional distress, medical expenses, and more.
How do you know what my personal injury case will be worth?
It can be difficult enough for a person to try to file a personal injury case on their own while they are trying to recover from their injuries. In fact, many people may find that they could have recovered sooner had they worked with a legal team who would shoulder the burden of their case for them. You want to know that your case is going to cover the expenses you have incurred since becoming injured. It will be nearly impossible for your personal injury lawyer to tell you exactly how much your case is worth, but they will know what a fair deal is once they have calculated your losses and expenses.
I’m nervous about going to trial. Is this avoidable?
A trial is avoidable most of the time. No one, even big insurance companies who likely have more to spend than the average person, wants to go through litigation. It is more expensive, takes more time, and could drag the insurance company’s name through the mud. Instead, you will find it is much more likely that your lawyer will be able to successfully settle with the insurance company after a few rounds of negotiation. If you have concerns about going to trial, speak with your lawyer and talk honestly about what your expectations are.
What is my time limit to file a personal injury claim?
The time limit you have to file a claim is one of the most important things you can keep in mind. Each state will have its own statutes of limitations outlined for people to follow when they need to file a claim. In the state of Wyoming, you will have 4 years from the date you became injured to file your claim. If you were recently injured, we suggest reaching out to a lawyer sooner rather than later so that you can begin gathering evidence while it is still fresh. Just because you have 4 years doesn’t mean you want to wait up until the last minute.
What if the insurance is calling me and trying to get me to accept a deal? Should I accept?
Never accept an insurance company’s deal without speaking with your lawyer first. The insurance company will try to get you on the phone alone without a lawyer so that they can get you to accept the lowest possible offer possible. Instead, tell them politely that all negotiations should go through your lawyer and that you will have your lawyer call them back. It is best to get off the phone as quickly as possible. When you are ready to work on your personal injury claim, reach out to the team at Davis, Johnson & Kallal today.
