In Vermont you need not prove fault, but only that the injury arose out of and in the course of your employment. Workers’ compensation benefits include payments for reasonable medical care, time out of work, vocational retraining, and permanent injuries.
All claims are handled by Vermont Department of Labor (VDOL). Many injured workers find themselves with questions about denied claims or benefits terminated prematurely. Others are simply unaware of their rights and should never rely on an insurance company to look out for them.
Diamond & Robinson has years of experience representing injured workers before the VDOL. Before you accept an insurance company’s position, sign a document or settle your claim, call attorney Steven Robinson for a free consultation. Often times you will not need an attorney, but when you do, Diamond & Robinson stands ready to fight for your rights.
