While Joe’s employer was dismissive, Joe knew it was time to pursue workers’ compensation benefits. But he wondered whether it was the right move. He had heard that seeking workers’ compensation is a complicated process, and he felt overwhelmed.
In this scenario, it was best for Joe to seek the advice of a skilled workers’ compensation attorney who could guide him through the process.
