We Understand How The Workers’ Compensation System Works

In Tennessee, claims are administered by the state Department of Labor. We represent our clients during the initial hearing and work to get a claim approved right away. When a claim cannot be resolved the first time around, we take cases to the circuit court and advocate for fair compensation. Available compensation includes lost wages, medical expenses and special benefits for partial incapacity to work.

In Virginia, the Workers’ Compensation Commission is responsible for handling claims brought by employees. During the initial hearing before a deputy commissioner, we present all available evidence to the commissioner. If a claim is not initially approved, we can seek a second hearing before the full Commission and pursue review by the Virginia Court of Appeals until we get a favorable outcome. We have represented clients at every stage of appeal. Compensation in Virginia includes lost wages and medical expenses.

We Know Why Claims Are Denied. We Work To Ensure They Are Approved.

Claims are commonly denied because of a lack of sufficient evidence like medical documentation. Decision makers also deny claims when workers fails to link their injuries to the accident they allege caused them.

Dan Bieger has the experience to avoid these common missteps. He works with doctors to gather appropriate medical evidence and diligently prepares all necessary paperwork. He ensures that a claim clearly lays out the cause of his client’s injuries.
