Do you know your rights when you are injured on the job?  Do you know what to do when you have suffered a serious injury in a car accident or collision with a commercial vehicle?

Many people don’t know their rights?  When you [Link to Contact] schedule a free consultation with  Brian T. McGovern, Esq. to discuss your possible personal injury or Workers’ Compensation claim, you are making an appointment to be well informed and well cared for.

The law office of Brian T. McGovern, Esq. serves victims of workplace injuries and auto accidents in Mt. Vernon, Centralia, Salem, Fairfield, Benton, Flora, Nashville and McLeansboro.  He knows the insurance companies, their adjusters and tactics, he know the court system and he have represented hundreds and hundreds of injured people to get the full compensation they deserve.

Workers’ Compensation
He is nearly over 90% successful in obtaining settlements for my workers’ comp clients.  He is also over 90% successfully in getting your workers comp benefits started or reinstated.  If you have filed your own claim and been denied, he can help.

Your employer or insurance company may steer you to a company doctor or clinic when you are hurt on the job.  However, you are entitled by law to see any physician, including your regular family doctor.  The insurance carrier may assign a nurse case manager to keep tabs on your medical treatment.  He will explain who this person is and whether you have to talk to them.

He has successfully represented clients against many local employers, including Wal-Mart, Walgreen’s and General Tire.  His firm welcomes union employees with their injury claims.  He also represents clients who have been fired in retaliation for filing workers’ compensation claims.

Personal Injury Auto Accidents
When you are injured in a car or truck accident, there are no weekly benefits.  You are paid when the claim is settled with the insurance carrier – or when you win your case before a jury.  These cases are very difficult to manage by yourself.  Brian T. McGovern will manage these difficulties, track you, track your medical progress and work hard for timely compensation so you can pay your bills and move on with your life.

Perhaps you have received a settlement offer from an insurance company, but do not know if it is a fair offer; he can help you determine if it is an acceptable offer.  If not he is prepared to take your case to court when the insurance company is reluctant to pay what your claim is worth.

If your injury is not healing, you have not gotten a firm diagnosis after seeing several doctors, or are getting different diagnoses, please know that Brian T. McGovern, Esq. will stand by you until the end.  He will locate specialists for his clients, or whatever it takes to get you on the path to recovery.

Social Security Disability
He also helps clients recover Social Security disability benefits if they have suffered a permanent disability, job-related or otherwise.  Most Social Security claims are turned down at the first and even the second stages.  Brian T. McGovern, Esq. is successful at obtaining Social Security disability benefits for his clients, and he doesn’t get paid until you are approved.

Contact us today for a free consultation  about your work-related or car accident personal injury.  We are available nights and weekends by appointment, and your first meeting will always be with Mr. McGovern personally.

Best wishes on your speedy recovery!
