Are you worried about your benefits being reduced?

Having trouble making ends meet? The pandemic is already hard on families, but if you’re suffering from a workplace injury and can’t work, and you rely on your worker’s compensation benefits, you could have a big problem.

Your workers' compensation benefits can be reduced for any one of these reasons: 

  • You return to work on either a full-time or part-time basis.
  • You receive unemployment benefits.
  • You receive or might receive in the near future Social Security Disability benefits.
  • You are receiving workers' compensation benefits from another state for the same injury.
  • You are receiving pension benefits from your employer.
  • You are receiving disability benefits paid in whole or in part by your employer.
  • You have past-due child support obligations.
  • Your injury was the result of alcohol or drug use.
  • You willfully deceive your employer regarding your ability to perform your assigned work duties.
  • You willfully failed to use a safety device, such as a hard hat, safety glasses, or safety harness.
  • You intentionally failed to follow a reasonable safety rule.

"Kaufman and Kaufman was extremely professional in my case. They set appointments as often as I requested which was often weekly or more. They handled all the problems that came up and ended up settling my case for more than I expected. I was very happy with the result."

"Kaufman and Kaufman represented me in a workman’s comp case and I couldn’t be happier with their service. They were very professional and gave me the personal service I was relying on. I hope I never get in that kind of situation again but if I do the Kaufman’s would be the firm I’d call. I highly recommend them."

- Erik (2022)

"Couldn't have asked for a more compassionate and thorough legal representation! Matt was so patient in taking the time to explain everything. The entire staff was incredible. I felt bolstered and validated throughout. I would recommend K&K to anyone going through a dark time with a debilitating injury.. they truly do care about their clients."
