We Get You the Workers’ Compensation You Deserve.

Workers’ Compensation

When you’re injured on the job, you have a right to temporary disability benefits and paid-for medical treatment. Depending on the situation, you may also be eligible for permanent disability payments. Unfortunately, obtaining these benefits can be difficult—especially when you’re hurting. At SHK LAW, we know how to navigate these cases and make sure you’re on the right track.

Dedicated to Doing it Right

Our Approach

Our intentional caseload allows us to invest heavily in your workers’ compensation case and give it the attention it deserves.

We trust OSHA and the DWC to do their jobs, but we’d rather see the scene of your workplace accident for ourselves when practical. The reason? When a workplace investigation is delayed (as is often the case), important evidence can be removed, and recordings can be erased—either by accident or intentionally. We prefer to act as quickly as possible and use our own resources to avoid missing out on crucial evidence. 

To build a case that accounts for all the harm you’ve experienced, we devote an enormous amount of resources, communicating with workers’ compensation experts and contracting expert witnesses as needed. Above all, we make sure you can file a flawless claim as soon as possible—because time is of the essence. The benefits available in workers’ compensation are limited, so it is critical you have a team who knows how to maximize them. 

Insurance companies know that certain law firms get more and more desperate for settlement, the closer they get to trial. Unprepared to take the case the full distance, these firms lose leverage as trial approaches. As a result, their clients do not get full and fair justice for their injuries.

The opposite is true when SHK is on the case. As a trial firm, we hold all the cards as trial draws near. We have done the work. Our experts are retained and ready to testify. We are trial-ready. There is no need – and no pressure – to accept a lowball offer. This gives us the upper hand and leverage to obtain the maximum value prior to trial. If we do settle before trial, we settle for full and fair justice–not discount justice.

The numbers don’t lie: our outstanding jury verdicts have paved a pathway for excellent settlements. And since we are willing to finance a case all the way through trial, you will not have to accept an unfair payout for your injuries.
