We Maximize Overlapping Benefits from All Claims
Disability programs and plans, and claims for personal injury and worker’s compensation frequently overlap. If there is a claim for a work injury or personal injury, applying the regulations and law is very complex.
Benefits paid under one type of plan, program or claim may be reduce benefits from another. We sort through all of your claims to maximize benefits and compensation from all available sources.
Examples of Benefits from More Than One Source
