Bring your Pursuit of
Justice on the Right Foot
In complicated cases it is better to have a workers’ compensation attorney right away. Civil or personal injury attorneys are not equipped to help sometimes, because most law schools do not teach workers’ compensation. Therefore, hands on experience in the field and further education of an attorney helps. I have an experience in the field and have practiced workers’ compensation for over 28 years. So please do not hesitate to ask for my help at the Law Offices of Farley and Ketendjian.
For any nuanced approach or in case you are confused you need to resort to legal representation, and The Law Offices of Farley and Ketendjian are here to help you with the claim filing process. You are the judge of your circumstance. But do not delay the filing of a work comp claim, because you only have one year. After a year the employer may contest your claim as belated and barred by a statute of limitations.
