Reduction / Termination of Benefits – Experienced Lawyers Who Fight For You
When you are injured on-the-job, the law requires that your employer provide payment of workers’ compensation benefits to you while you are disabled from working, as well as to pay for all of the medical bills you incur for the treatment of your work-related injury. However, in nearly all cases, there will come a time when your employer together with its work comp insurance carrier will attempt to reduce the amount of wage loss benefits paid to you each week. Often times they will try to put an end to your work comp benefits altogether. We know how to prevent this from happening to you. Day in and day out, the experienced lawyers at Liever, Hyman & Potter successfully litigate cases before workers’ compensation judges, making sure your rights are protected and that your benefits continue to be paid.
Sometimes insurance companies will resort to self-help and simply stop paying you or refuse to pay your medical bills. We are familiar with the procedures to reinstate your benefits and to penalize employers and insurance companies when they have acted illegally. Sometimes insurance companies hire doctors and vocational workers to say you are fully recovered or capable of working, even though you are not, and then try to terminate, suspend or modify your benefits. In defense of such employer initiated change, in appropriate cases, we will hire our own medical and vocational experts to defend the case and preserve your benefits.

We charge a contingent fee for our services based upon a percentage of the awards and settlement which is clearly defined in the initial agreement to represent you.
