  • We caught up with Mr. Hayes as his DC Workers' Compensation Case Comes to a Close.

    We got the low-down from Mr. Hayes today as his case comes to a close, he says that the year is looking brighter! What type of case did you have? I had a worker’s compensation claim. It was the result of an injury that I had sustained while breaking up a fight at a high school where I worked. I was temporarily terminated by employer, but when I asked Mr. Kearney and his team to intercede, I was given a new position to accommodate my restrictive medical needs. What was your job, and how did having a workers’ comp claim affect your job? Before the injury, I was a Dean of Students at a high school. Due the injury, I was unable to remain in that capacity, and so the organization moved to a new school in a new role. How did Donahoe Kearney help you? Mr. Kearney helped me by first getting my worker’s compensation benefits that the insurance had denied. Between the date I was terminated and the date that I was offered a new position, I did not receive worker’s compensation benefits. This meant that for nearly two months, I did not receive any income. The insurance company supported the position of my employer and my benefits were denied because the employer said that I had rejected another position offer. After some time, I participated in a deposition. And about three weeks later, I received benefits and was able to pay my bills. Secondly, Mr. Kearney helped me by working my case in speedy manner. The new job and place have taken a toll on me emotionally and mentally. My stress level and incidents of depression have increased. And so, when I received a call from Mr. Kearney as a “check-in”, I told and explained to him that I was not happy with my current position and I was looking for other options. He helped me by speeding up the disposition of my case and worked to get me a settlement. Because I was ready to leave the job, I was satisfied with the first offer. But he pushed, and we got more -  I’m glad I trusted him. What are you doing now, and how is your settlement helping with that? The settlement is helping me to get my life in order. I’m able to pay down debt, take a much-needed vacation, and focus on the issues that are important to me. A year ago, I never would have imagined that I’d be where I am today. But thanks, to Mr. Kearney and his team, this year is brighter!

  • DC Injured Worker Reviews Our Services, and Free Materials

    As a client I do find the material good reading especially at odd  times.  Sometimes, I do have questions and your newsletters are good resource material for me and I do forward to friends.   I will say I have grown from the constant flow of information and I'm more at ease with this process and not feeling like a victim but more a situation that's being dealt with at a much higher  level than I thought it required.   Of course, early on I was a wreck and now I'm more knowledgeable a vast difference so I'm grateful.   So. I thank your guys very much.

  • When you're always playing to the next season you don't have time to get hurt!

     Once you get hurt, you learn quickly that the clubs have a lot of people looking out for them – trainers, doctors, lawyers. And you don’t. The reality is, most of us will have serious injuries during our careers. I had two – in 2004 and 2007, with different teams and in different states. By then, I was a veteran player, so I asked a lot of questions. I filed for workers’ compensation for both injuries and my experiences were totally  different. After I hired D.C. lawyer Frank Kearney, it was like going from the “outhouse” to the “penthouse.” read the full review here.

  • insurance company tries to low-ball construction worker on settlement

    A construction worker hurt on a D.C. job site was dealing with the workers comp insurance adjuster on his own. As you can see, the adjuster thought they could settle the case cheap - that is the insurance company's job after all.  After learning about our workers comp results in DC, he called us take over his case.  Let's just say that was a really lucrative call for him! We got to work immediately on the construction accident case.  And here's what he has to say about the end result. I had a workers comp claim that was about to settle out and it seemed like the insurance company was trying to "low ball" me, so I called Donahoe Kearney. Mr. Kearney took my case and negotiated a settlement much higher than what I would have gotten on my own. I highly recommend Mr. Frank Kearney and his staff.
