Workers' Compensation

Workers’ Compensation Attorneys in Montana

Workers’ compensation coverage is intended to provide the worker a swift and certain remedy after being injured on the job without the need to go to court to get medical bills and wage loss compensated.

The purpose and goals of the Montana workers’ compensation system are set out in the statute and are primarily to be a cost-effective way to get workers back to work. The statute limits benefits for workers and excludes certain types of claims. An attorney can be critical in helping the injured person obtain the appropriate compensation under the system, but also to look at other potential claims and sources of recovery since the workers’ compensation statute is limited. A Montana workers’ compensation attorney understands how the court works and what steps need to be taken to get a favorable settlement for a workplace injury.

If you have been injured on the job, do not accept the automatic denial of your workers’ compensation claim by a claims examiner. It is anything but the final word in your work-related accident claim. At Bliven Law Firm, P.C. , we help injured workers secure the benefits they are entitled to following a denial, usually without going to court. Our lawyers have a combined 35 years of legal experience and experience with the complicated workers’ compensation and related disability and other injury and insurance laws.

Advocacy for All Types of Workplace Accidents

Our workers’ compensation attorneys represent those who have sustained many types of work-related injuries, including:

  • Fractures and herniated discs
  • Industrial vehicle collisions and on the job motor vehicle wrecks
  • Neck injuries and back injuries
  • Total disability – temporary total disability and permanent total disability
  • Permanent partial disability
  • Traumatic shoulder and leg injuries
  • Repetitive trauma motion — including carpal tunnel and tendonitis
  • Spinal cord injuries

At Bliven Law Firm, P.C. we walk you through applying for workers’ compensation benefits when you have been seriously injured. We fight to protect your rights and obtain recovery from insurance providers. You do not have to face them on your own. You do not have to accept any decision they make as final. 

Our attorneys become involved when you retain us to make sure an appropriate investigation is completed, and the facts are obtained. Time is of the essence in contacting us. Our team will strive to see that all critical evidence is obtained and preserved so we can prove your claim and maximize your financial and other recovery. 

Obtain the Workers’ Compensation Benefits That Are Rightfully Yours

You can trust our attorneys to look out for your best interests, not the workers’ compensation insurer or carrier. They want to show that while you cannot perform the functions of your current job, you can do something, no matter how minor or whether it pays much less than your job at the time of injury. Often times the workers’ compensation insurers hire nurse case managers to direct your care and get your doctors to say you can go back to work at your job, or other jobs, that may not be available in your area or even exist in the local economy.

Providers are often resistant to give vocational rehabilitation benefits to help you take a new career direction, or even rate your impairment so you get the permanent disability award you are entitled to under the statute. Our job is to aggressively pursue your interests, and everything else you are entitled to, so you can move on with your life. Unlike many other law firms in this valley and this state that claim to work for injured folks, we have never been lawyers for insurance companies, nor will we. We work for the injured and disabled and fight the insurance companies. The insurance companies have lawyers working on the case and so should you. Some lawyers think that it is acceptable to work for both sides in injury and disability cases. We don’t, we are dedicated to advocating for the injured and disabled.
