Wyoming Personal Injury Attorneys

If you have suffered a serious injury in a car accident or truck accident, an on-the-job injury, or a fall on a poorly maintained property anywhere in Wyoming, you are facing a lot of stress and many questions right now.

  • Will I get the medical treatment I need to recover?
  • When will I be able to go back to work?
  • What will happen if I can't go back to work?
  • How will I pay my medical bills?

In order to get the answers you need, you may need to talk to an attorney who is experienced in handling personal injury cases, workers' compensation claims, or Social Security Disability claims. You will find that level of experience at the personal injury law firm of Messenger & Overfield, P.C.

Personal Injury Lawsuits

Personal Injury Attorneys Wyoming Messenger & JurovichIf you were injured in a car crash anywhere in Wyoming, such as along U.S. highway 20/26, a truck collision on I-80 or I-25, or a motorcycle accident on U.S. 14/16, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries from the parties responsible. Proving your case requires hard work, dedication, and a willingness to thoroughly investigate the causes of your accident and to prove the full extent of your injuries, pain and suffering, and lost wages.

In addition to motor vehicle collisions, we also represent people bringing injury claims for injuries caused by the use of defective products and by slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents on poorly maintained or dangerous properties.

Workers' Compensation Claims

In Wyoming, we see many on-the-job back, hip, neck, and shoulder injuries. Slipping and falling in the workplace is a common cause of ankle, knee, arm, wrist, shoulder, and back injuries. Oil field injuries are not uncommon, and we also see injured truck drivers, construction workers, factory and warehouse workers, and clerical workers.

Workplace injuries are usually covered by workers' compensation insurance—but are you receiving all the workers' comp you are owed? Has your employer told you that you must see the company doctor? Has your employer or the insurance company tried to force you back to work before your doctor said you were ready?

Workers' compensation rules have strict deadlines. You must appeal your final determination by a certain date, or you will not be allowed to do so, so it is important to contact an attorney right away.

We can assist you in resolving any workers' compensation issue. If you have been denied benefits for a work-related injury, contact our law office to ask an experienced workers' comp lawyer about your rights.

We also handle workers' comp appeals. If you have lost a contested hearing and want to appeal to the district court, contact us for a case evaluation.

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)

If your injury will prevent you from working more than 12 months, you may be eligible to apply for Social Security Disability Insurance. You have probably paid into the Social Security system your entire working life—when you have suffered a permanent disability, it should be there for you. Unfortunately that's not always the case.

It is common for an initial SSDI application to be denied the first time. Don't give up after a first denial. Work with a lawyer to file an appeal. You have a limited amount of time to appeal, however, so don't delay.

Call our office at 307-463-4415 (toll free at 866-930-5115) to speak to social security disability insurance lawyer about your options. With legal help, a Social Security case can often be resolved successfully.
