Workers’ compensation law is a complex system of rules designed to provide recovery for employees who suffer an accident while on the job. A work-related accident often has a devastating impact on a person and his or her family. At Barry & Company we understand the issues faced by injured workers. An injured person may recover lost wages (indemnity), medical expenses, disability payments and vocational rehabilitation or retraining following an occupational accident. A claim not properly or timely paid may also result in the award of penalties and attorney’s fees. We have litigated numerous workers’ compensation claims on behalf of injured workers, employers and insurance carriers. If you have questions or issues in handling your workers’ compensation claim, please contact our offices.
