What to expect when you call a workers comp lawyer

Dennis Morse is the first point of contact for our office. He has two decades of medical-legal expertise and is considered an expert in work comp law. Dennis will want to know how you were injured and your current medical status. It is helpful to provide him with a diagnosis and prognosis.

Dennis will make sure that you understand your legal rights and will give you some general advice about your situation. He will explain how you can use your own doctor for medical care and when your wage loss benefits will start. He can even answer questions that you might not have considered yet.

Dennis may also suggest that you schedule an office consultation. Appointments can usually be made for the next day or very soon thereafter. There is never a charge to discuss your workers comp case.
