Vocational Rehabilitation

Returning to Work After a Serious Accident

The personal injury lawyers at Murphy Battista LLP fully recognize the importance of productive work to a person’s self-esteem. We have seen many clients struggle with doubts about their ability to resume a successful career or find alternative work in the aftermath of an accident.

The first step is to make sure that all of your injuries are properly evaluated, identified and treated. Not all injuries are diagnosed or even noticed during emergency treatment. We help our clients access the diagnostic and therapeutic resources necessary to promote a complete recovery, regardless of the nature or onset of the symptoms.

When a brain injury or spinal cord injury indicates a likelihood of a continuing or permanent disability, we work with clients and their insurers to obtain the benefits necessary to support a lengthy convalescence. Further education, job retraining, skills assessments and other aspects of a comprehensive vocational rehabilitation program will also figure into our service as a client’s needs and interests emerge.

We focus on the physical and vocational recovery of our clients as much as we do on maximizing the value of their compensation claims after a motor vehicle accident or error in medical treatment. To learn how lawyers committed to comprehensive client service can help you with the vocational aspects of recovery from a serious injury, contact Murphy Battista for a free consultation.

The lawyers at Murphy Battista also work to obtain disability insurance benefits whenever a client’s ability to return to work comes into dispute. Insurers have been known to deny valid claims, and they will often suspend or terminate benefits when they think that they have paid enough. While we are committed to helping our clients return to work, we will not rush the process or recommend the return to full duties prematurely.
