Injured At Work In Maine? We Can Help.
When we opened our doors in 1976, we started fighting for the rights of people injured on the job and have since built a very strong reputation for success. Our goal with every workers’ compensation case is the same: justice and fair compensation.
What You Need To Know About Workers’ Comp
No one looks forward to being injured at work. But luckily, Maine’s workers’ compensation laws are among the most favorable to workers. Workers injured on the job are entitled to coverage for their medical expenses and lost wages, as well as reinstatement in their old job once they recover.
The majority of employees, excluding those in agriculture and domestic work, must have these benefits made available to them by their employers. If your employer is not cooperating, we can help. If your claim has been denied, we can assist you in your appeal. Talk to an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer right away to learn your options.
Protecting Injured Workers For Decades
Most workers don’t expect to need an attorney. At McTeague Higbee, we are the leading voice for Maine’s working people at the state legislative level. If you have been sidelined by a work-related injury, we will relentlessly pursue the best outcome for your workers’ compensation case. We’ll stand by you to protect your rights every step of the way, from trial to settlement.
In addition to our traditional workers’ compensation practice, we also pursue cases on behalf of longshoremen and harbor workers. We understand how these laws apply specifically to shipyard and marine workers, and civilian workers overseas.
