Federal Workers’ Compensation Benefits
Federal employees injured in the course and scope of employment are entitled to medical benefits and wage loss compensation for wages lost due to the work-related disability or injury. Federal Workers’ Compensation Attorney Gregory A. Hall has been representing injured federal workers since 1996. Whether you are about to file a claim or have had your claim denied, you should call Attorney Hall to discuss your claim.
An experienced federal worker’s compensation lawyer can help you secure and protect the benefits to which you are entitled, such as wage loss, medical care, survivor and death benefits. In many cases, the most critical aspect of representation is obtaining medical evidence. Otherwise stated, most cases fail before the Office of Workers’ Compensation Benefits (OWCP) because of deficient medical evidence. If your case is worth pursuing, then you should consider the value of retaining skilled counsel to help you secure OWCP benefits. While it is possible to appeal denials of claims, if the case is appealed to the Employees’ Compensation Appeals Board (ECAB) the Board will not consider additional evidence submitted during the appeal. This means that the ECAB’s evaluation is limited to the evidence of record, underscoring the importance of consulting a qualified OWCP lawyer at outset your case to make sure you have the evidence to support your claim.
If you need legal counsel to discuss your rights under the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA) you should contact OWCP Attorney Gregory A. Hall to schedule a consultation.
