The Woodlands Workers’ Compensation Attorneys
Get 50+ Years of Collective Experience to Help You
If you sustained a work-related injury or illness due to unsafe work conditions, you may be entitled to payment from your employer or through workers’ compensation. But disputes can arise and proving unsafe work conditions can be extremely difficult and lengthy, which is why you need the best possible workers’ compensation lawyer throughout the claims process to protect your rights and prepare for the possibility of a hearing and appeals.
The Woodlands workers’ compensation lawyers at Morgan Bourque Attorney at Law has five decades of combined experience and success representing clients during the workers’ compensation claims process, and can advise you in all stages, including:
Workers’ compensation board hearings - If disputes arise, the Board may hold a hearing before a judge. The workers’ compensation law judge can review medical records, take testimony, and examine other evidence that might relate to the case.
Appeals - If the insurance company’s appeal goes to a panel, it does not have to provide benefits for contested portions of the decision during the dispute. Any uncontested portions of the decision must be awarded. If an insurance company appeals a panel’s decision, they are obligated to support the claimant through the next phase of appeal.

Employers and insurance companies will regularly challenge who was at fault and often minimize the seriousness of your injury in an effort to reduce the compensation you deserve. Our legal team can investigate your work-related injury and convince a judge, jury or panel that your injury or condition was caused by an employer’s mistake, malice or negligence.
