    What it means to you

    Workers’ comp, personal injury, Social Security Disability, and pension claims—we help people navigate these confusing and complicated systems.

    Here are just some of the steps we’ll take to help you:

    • Determine if you have a case
    • Gather medical records, payroll information, and any details needed to make your claim strong as possible
    • Prepare all court documents and paperwork necessary, and represent you during any hearings
    • Prepare you, and all witnesses of your accident or incident, for the court hearing, if necessary


    Workers’ Comp: It’s Complicated

    The workers’ comp system is complex, especially when you’ve never experienced it. If you take on the workers’ comp claims process alone, it’s stressful, to say the least. It takes longer—and usually doesn’t have the best outcome.

    Don’t go it alone. We’ll help you get all of the benefits you deserve.


    How Do Free Consultations Work?

    No matter your cause for concern, from getting injured at work to gathering pension claims you’re entitled to, you may be considering filing a lawsuit or some other type of claim. We provide you a free initial consultation with a lawyer, so you and our attorney have the opportunity to ask each other questions about your potential case, and what brought you to us.


    What to Expect

    We’ll sit down together and you’ll share your story. Your Black & Jones attorney will want to hear the details of your injuries, illness or condition—and how those details are affecting your life, as well as that of your family. We’ll also want to learn more about the medical treatment you’ve been receiving.

    Mission Critical, and Confidential

    We need to know as many details as possible to help you with your case, but it’s also important for you to know that anything you say to your attorney is privileged. This means that your attorney can only share information with others that you want him or her to share.

    If you’re wondering why the attorney needs to know certain information, let us know, and we’ll explain why the answer is important to your case.
