Things to know about workers compensation

- If you feel medical treatment, including physical therapy, was prematurely ended you may be able to have the medical treatment restored.

I sustained a serious injury on-the-job and soon after requesting additional workers compensation I was fired from where I’d worked for years. I didn’t know where to turn until a friend suggested I call Dan Matrafajlo. Thanks Dan, for making sure I was taken care of financially and my former employer got what he deserved.
I used Mr Matrafajlo for a personal injury case that occurred during work. Mr Matrafajlo genuinely cared for my well being and insured that i received a fair settlement. I would definitely recommend Mr Matrafajlo to my friends and family.
