Injured Workers Have Third Party Option After Work Comp
Work injuries are life changing and still all too common in America. Injured workers wonder if they will ever return to work, how they will pay for extended care and rehabilitation, and who will pay the bills while they recover. Today, workers’ compensation insurance is available in all 50 states and covers some medical care and lost income. But with workers’ comp benefits under attack and shrinking in many states, injured workers should not overlook possible third party actions for additional financial support.

Jeff Sieben was very good at communicating with me whether it was email or phone calls.
Sheryl Nixon

Jeff Sieben was the first one I talked to about my injury. I was not sure if there was even a case. But as the months went by and my pain got worse, the seriousness of the injury became apparent. Jeff took on the case and put me at ease about the medical bills and calls. He was professional in his attitude while being compassionate to my situation. I have recommended him to others and will continue to do so.

My boyfriend was hit by a car and while all the attorneys he talked to said he didn't have much chance of a case, SiebenCarey took him on and gave him a fighting chance. He's still recovering, but SiebenCarey is making it a lot easier.
