Federal Employees Compensation Act
Federal Workers’ Compensation Attorneys
Protecting the Rights of All Injured Federal Employees
5 USC 8100
If you are a federal worker and have been injured on the job, any workers’ compensation benefits you seek must be under the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA), the federal government’s version of a workers’ compensation program. The provisions of FECA are different from state workers’ compensation laws. You want a lawyer who is well-versed in the federal laws and regulations and who has successfully represented other federal employees who have been hurt on the job.
Dedicated Lawyers for Injured Federal Employees
We handle all matters related to a federal workers’ compensation claim, such as gathering relevant evidence to support your request for benefits, assisting in the preparation and filing of necessary documentation throughout the process, and serving as your advocate in hearings or proceedings. We represent federal employees working in all types of occupations, from mail clerks to carriers, VA nurses to administrative personnel, and prison guards.
We are experienced in handling any issue faced throughout the federal workers’ compensation process including, but not limited to: (1) Denials; (2) Modified or Limited Duty Job Offers; (3) Second Opinion/Referee Exams; (4) Terminations; (5) Schedule Awards; (6) Overpayments.
Our services also include potential claims against third parties that could also be liable for your work injury. For instance, we institute action against motorists who have caused an accident resulting in your work injury, land owners responsible for the property upon which you suffered your work injury, and more.
Our lawyers protect the rights of workers who have sustained any type of covered injury, including:
- Traumatic injury, such as slip and fall injuries, injuries caused by falling objects or injuries suffered in a work-related motor vehicle accident
- Occupational disease claims, where a worker is exposed to conditions at work over a period of time resulting in injury.
- Emotional Conditions resulting from factors of employment, and claims for death benefits.
We work with individuals who have suffered many types of injuries including to the neck, back, knee, elbow, shoulder, hip, ankle or wrist injuries. We will also help you seek benefits if you have aggravated a preexisting condition on your job.
We represent any federal agency that falls under the FECA including, but not limited to:
- United States Postal Service
- Department of Veterans’ Affairs
- Department of Homeland Security
- Federal Bureau of Prisons
- Federal Bureau of Investigations
- Central Intelligence Agency
- Internal Revenue Service
