A leader in handling workers’ compensation claims since 1989, we offer training or present lectures to workers’ associations and unions regarding time limits, important follow-ups, various medical reports, and recourse or appeal procedures. In short, we cover everything in order to manage this type of file quickly and effectively.
We have spoken to doctors who practice in clinics and to therapists’ associations; we also offer brief meetings in the form of lunch meetings to raise awareness among medical personnel regarding the importance of the role they play in having an accident victim’s rights respected. The successful outcome of a case depends on the approach and, in particular, the written accounts of the caregivers and doctors. A mistake can be fatal.
