If you have been injured on the job in Rhode Island, you need a lawyer to ensure you get the workers’ compensation benefits you deserve. Without representation, your employer and its insurance carrier will likely fight your claim and deny you adequate benefits. By working with a lawyer, you can avoid the three major tricks played on injured workers.
You can trust the Law Office of Stephen J. Dennis with your workers’ comp claim. We can assist you throughout the entire process, from initial application to appealing a denied claim and at hearings before the workers’ compensation board. We also represent workers before the Rhode Island Supreme Court and Rhode Island Workers’ Compensation appellate division.
