Understanding Your Rights
If you were forced to hire an El Paso workers' compensation lawyer to get the compensation you were owed, you may expect your employer to be unhappy with you. Whether or not your workers' compensation claim was contested, your employer is not allowed to fire you, demote you, pass you over for promotion or otherwise punish you for seeking compensation after a workplace injury. State and federal law prevents employers from these acts of retaliation. If your employer isn't treating you fairly after a workers' comp claim, you should speak to an attorney as soon as possible.

In addition to retaliation claims, we can help you actually collect the compensation owed to you. When an insurance company fails to make the proper workers' compensation payments, you may be forced to take them to court. We have extensive litigation experience. We are not afraid to litigate against insurance companies. Whatever your case requires, we will be there to fight for you.
