The Social Security claims process can be long and complicated. Many clients who are initially denied SSDI/SSI benefits are ultimately awarded benefits with the assistance of an experienced attorney. Currier & Trask, P.A. handles Social Security claims on a contingent fee basis, meaning there are no fees unless we help you win your case.
The attorneys at Currier & Trask, P.A. have extensive workers’ compensation practice, and have litigated and settled workers’ compensation claims for over thirty years. Attorney Trask worked for the Appellate Division of the former Workers’ Compensation Commission while in law school, and has practiced workers’ compensation law for his entire career. Mr. Trask continues to handle a large volume of comp cases, primarily representing injured workers, while also representing employers, on occasion. Mr. Trask has successfully argued a number of important cases before the Maine Supreme Judicial Court – cases which have helped both the firm’s clients as well as the rights of injured workers throughout the State.
Workers’ compensation law is a very specialized, ever-changing area of the law. It has become increasingly complicated, and injured workers are at a distinct disadvantage when dealing with insurance adjusters and attorneys. Injured workers need competent counsel in their corner as they negotiate the dispute resolution process, mediation, and hearing stages. Currier & Trask, P.A. handles cases throughout the State, with an emphasis in Aroostook and Penobscot counties.
Many workers’ compensation cases settle. The value of cases varies greatly, and is dependant on the workers’ average weekly wage, degree of incapacity, and permanent impairment percentage, among other factors. Attorney Trask has settled hundreds of cases, including a case in the mid-nineties that at the time was one of the largest settlements in State history.
Most cases are handled on a contingent fee basis–there is no fee unless the worker receives additional benefits or the cases settles.
