Marion Workers’ Compensation Attorney

Howerton, Dorris, Stone & Lambert Helps Injured Employees Get Back on their Feet Injured worker

Following a workplace injury, obtaining the necessary funds for recovery is crucial. While most employers treat their employees fairly, some will go to great lengths to misrepresent the severity of the injury or the right of the injured person to receive benefits.

When a person is denied compensation, they are not only left to cover their own medical bills, but they must also deal with a lack of income. At Howerton, Dorris, Stone & Lambert, we believe you deserve better. Our Marion work injury attorneys have helped many clients fight for fair compensation following a workplace injury.
