The Workers Compensation Law Firm Serving Kalispell Montana
Workers Compensation Info
Montana’s workers compensation law aims to provide financial support and medical care to individuals who have suffered illnesses or injuries related to their work, and also provide support to the dependents of those workers who have sadly passed away because of injuries sustained at work.
In theory, obtaining workers compensation benefits appears simple and straightforward. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case - filing a worker’s comp claim is difficult and complex. Insurance companies and the employers they represent will often try to argue that you weren’t actually hurt, that your injury was not related to your work, or that you were at fault for your accident.
Hurt workers are eligible for a variety of benefits under Montana workers compensation law, including benefits for those who become disabled or impaired due to their injuries. These disability benefits include:
If you have been hurt in an accident at work, then we know that no sum of money is going to make up for the pain, hurt, and possible disability that you’ve experienced. But if someone else is responsible for putting you through all of this, then you have every right to look for justice.
Glacier can help you. If you, or one of your family members have been hurt at work anywhere in the state of Montana, we can guide you through the process, look to get you a fair payout, appeal against any denials, and help you return to normality.

What exactly are disability benefits?
If you’ve been hurt while you were at work and you were disabled as a result of your injuries, you might be eligible for weekly or monthly payments for as long as you are disabled. If the disability is permanent, you could be eligible for a one-off lump-sum payout).
Workers comp claims are common throughout the country, and across Montana. Our team of injury lawyers workers comp Kalispell Montana is privileged to represent victims from Kalispell, Glacier County, Lake County, Lincoln County, Flathead County, Hill County, and from across the rest of Montana.
How much does hiring a workers compensation lawyer cost?
Glacier works via a contingency system. That means that we receive a percentage of your total payout once the case is won - and that you don’t have to pay anything at all until then.
Your insurance company would like nothing more than for you to represent yourself. The insurance industry fiercely protects their bottom line, and employs lawyers of their own. To protect yourself from their bullying tactics, hire a Kalispell workers comp attorney of your own.
If you sustained an injury while you were at work or when you were performing duties related to work, then you may have a workers comp case. The only way for you to be totally sure is to book a Free Injury Consultation with one of Glacier’s Kalispell Montana workers comp attorneys.
Who needs to have workers compensation insurance?
Every business with employees in Montana is required by law to have workers compensation insurance that covers all of their full and part-time employees. However, domestic workers and independent contractors do not always have coverage.
Am I classed as an employee or an independent contractor?
One of our workers comp lawyer Montana will have to examine several factors to allow us to determine your exact employment status. This includes the length of your employment, how you’re paid, how your hours are set, and son on. Once we’ve investigated fully, your workers comp attorney Montana will be able to tell you whether you qualify for workers comp.
Not necessarily. We will do our best to negotiate a fair settlement, without having to go to court. However, if this isn’t possible and we do need to go to court, don’t worry - we’ll be with you all the way.
What is an independent medical examination?
After you’ve been injured, your employee and their insurance company will request that you pay a visit to a doctor to undergo an independent medical examination. Be cautious - these exams are usually independent in name only. Visit a doctor you know and trust so that you can get a truly unbiased opinion about your injuries.
After a workplace injury, you have only 1 year to file your claim, or 2 years if you weren’t aware that you suffered an injury, or if it was a latent injury.
At the start of the claims process, it's actually very difficult to give a precise estimate of how much compensation you might receive. Once your case begins to progress, your Montana workers compensation lawyer will be able to give you a clearer picture.
What if I don’t feel like I’m hurt?
If you’ve had an accident at work but there’s no obvious injury and you don’t feel hurt, your employer mighty try to persuade you not to file a workers comp claim. You need to make sure you consult with a trusted medical professional, since you might have sustained an injury that takes time to manifest itself.
