Doing the right thing is not often cost-effective. This is why many employers and workers’ compensation insurance companies are more worried about their own bottom lines than they are about injured employees. Many injured workers never get the medical benefits or replacement income they need after suffering a work injury.
It comes as a shock when employers fail to do the right thing and deny workers’ compensation claims, and it can be devastating when a workers’ compensation insurance company refuses to fully cover your injury. Will you be able to make ends meet? How will you pay for your medical bills?
If somebody hurts you, regardless of whether they did it intentionally or not, then they have to pay to fix you. It’s that simple. There shouldn’t be anything to fight about. If it’s not a serious injury, a bandaid and a couple of aspirin, you’re owed you fifty cents for the bandaid and the aspirin. It’s easy to forgive a small injury like that, even if it hurt so bad you thought you were going to cry. But what about an arm, or a leg, or an eye? What if the injury broke bones, or wrenched your back and neck so badly you might need surgery? For most people, that injury threatens their job. So if “to forgive” means to forgo, or to give up your right to collect damages (money) from the clumsy party, is it even fair to ask you to forgive? What if you have a family with an injury that puts your job on the line? Is it morally okay to forgive before you protect your family from the financial consequences?
Note, however, that before you get done pondering these important moral questions, an insurance adjuster will call to teach you cold lessons about what greed means to an immortal corporation. Most insurance adjusters, on the personal level, are decent people. In twenty years I’ve worked personally with several hundred at least, and probably more than a thousand. (I’m beginning to recognize supervisors’ names. They’ve been in this fight as long as I have.) But don’t be fooled that the insurance COMPANY is a “decent” person. It’s a “person” only by operation of a legal fiction; it’s a machine, and the adjuster’s job is to feed it coal.
We might not stop the machine, but you don’t have to take a second lick. Let us fight the machine for what you’re owed.

Todd takes all personal injury or wrongful death cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that he does not get paid anything if you do not receive the compensation you deserve. You can be assured he will work hard to get you everything you are entitled to.
In most cases, if you have not reported your injury or condition to your employer within 30 days you may lose all eligibility for health benefits. If this happens, you may be responsible for paying for all of your own doctors appointments, hospital bills, rehabilitation services, and not be eligible for lost wages. Even with an attorney, it becomes almost impossible to get the benefits you deserve if you wait too long to report your injury. If you have been hurt or have developed symptoms due to a workplace condition, inform your employer. Then contact Todd Butler and get an experienced trial lawyer on your side.
Back and spine injuries are among the most common and most debilitating injuries in the workplace. These injuries may be the result of unavoidable accidents, dangerous working environments, inadequate training, or faulty machinery. However, under workers’ compensation, employees are not required to prove the reason that their injury occurred, as workers’ compensation is a no-fault system that compensates injured workers without regard to negligence or fault. The process of getting access to these benefits can be complex and often confusing on top of physically being disabled and unable to work. Act quickly, and get an experienced trial lawyer to help walk you through the steps to recovery and compensation
