Attorney's fees normally range from 9% to 12% of the benefits awarded.

If at any time you no longer wish to be represented by the attorney, you may withdraw from representation by notifying the attorney.

Welcome to DIAL & ASSOCIATES PC where we are dedicated to helping you navigate the workers' compensation process. This document provides a summary of the potential benefits available to workers' compensation applicants.
Workers' compensation typically covers all reasonable and necessary medical treatment for your work-related injury or illness. This includes doctor's visits, surgeries, hospital stays, prescription medications, and other medical services.
If your injury or illness temporarily prevents you from working, you may be eligible for temporary disability benefits. These benefits aim to partially replace your lost wages during the recovery period.
In cases where your injury or illness results in a permanent impairment, you may be entitled to permanent disability benefits. The amount is determined based on the severity of the impairment and its impact on your ability to work.
If you are unable to return to your pre-injury job due to a permanent disability, you may qualify for a voucher to help pay for retraining or skill enhancement for a new job.
In tragic cases where a work-related injury or illness leads to a worker's death, certain benefits may be available to the surviving dependents, including burial and death benefits.
Workers' compensation may cover vocational rehabilitation services to help you return to suitable employment after a work-related injury or illness.
You may be eligible for reimbursement for travel expenses related to medical treatment or vocational rehabilitation.
If your workers' compensation claim is denied or disputed, we are here to guide you through the appeals process and represent your interests to ensure you receive the benefits you deserve.
