OUR JOB IS TO FIGHT
FOR INJURED WORKERS

Our dedicated Portland workers’ compensation lawyer can help you navigate the complex claims process.

About Jodie Anne Phillips Polich, P.C.

When you’ve been hurt on the job, the last thing you should be worried about is fighting for your right to the workers’ compensation benefits you deserve. Unfortunately, the Oregon workers’ compensation system is complex, and many people find that filing for benefits is not as simple as it should be. Legitimate claims can be denied on technicalities, or a worker may be granted benefits only to learn they are not enough.

At Jodie Anne Phillips Polich, P.C., we are committed to helping injured workers figure out their next steps. Whether you need help filing an initial claim, appealing a denied claim, negotiating a lump-sum settlement, or just want to ask a few questions, we can help.

Our knowledgeable Portland workers’ compensation attorney will take the time to explain what to expect with a claim, and our team will handle every aspect of your case so you can focus on your recovery. Schedule a free consultation now to talk about how we can help you, and learn about how we’ve helped previous injured clients!

How Do Attorney Fees Work?

In Oregon, the Workers’ Compensation Board closely monitors attorney fees. Depending on the outcome of your case, the insurance company may be forced to pay your attorney, or your attorney may get paid a percentage of the money she recovers for you. Either way, you do not pay upfront or out of pocket.
