You Worked Hard. You Got Injured. Your Employer Should Take Care Of You.

A company’s duty to its employees doesn’t stop with full pay and benefits. If you are a worker who has been injured on the job, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation to pay your medical bills, replace lost income and help you retrain for a new job if you cannot return to your previous one. Herbert Chestnut has been representing injured workers for decades. He employs his 38 years of legal experience to assess your workers’ comp case, help you navigate the filing process, and develop effective counter strategies if you experience a delay or a denial of benefits.

We know that the journey through the workers’ compensation process can be stressful and, at times, confusing. In addition to answering any questions you have about your case, our attorney is also honest and attentive. This approach has helped him earn client recommendations and praise within the legal community. He has received an AV rating from Martindale-Hubbell* and is a three-time winner of the Workers’ Comp Attorney of the Year award.
