  • Can my employer fire me if I file a workers’ compensation claim?
    Your employer is not allowed to retaliate against you in any way when you file a workers’ compensation claim. This means they may not fire you, let you go, demote you, pass you over for a promotion, refuse to give you a raise, or otherwise take negative action against you because you have sought workers’ compensation benefits. If you believe your employer has unjustly retaliated against you, reach out to our team at Schotter Millican. In addition to appealing denied workers’ compensation claims, we handle complex employer retaliation cases related to workers’ compensation and wrongful termination.
  • Can I take video of my independent medical evaluation?
    Yes! Not only are you allowed to video your independent medical evaluation (IME), but you absolutely should. At Schotter Millican, we have a full team of videographers on staff. Where other law firms may recommend that you hire a videographer or, at best, refer a videographer you can use, we send a videographer to your IME completely free of charge. This helps keep doctors honest and works to ensure that you receive the best possible medical care.
  • How much does a workers’ compensation attorney cost?
    At Schotter Millican, our legal fees are dependent upon us recovering compensation for you. There are no upfront or out-of-pocket expenses when you hire our team and, in the unlikely event we do not recover a settlement or verdict on your behalf, you do not pay.
