You have legal rights as a person injured at work in Vermont.

Vermont workers’ compensation is a benefit paid to workers who get hurt on the job. The Vermont workers’ compensation system requires employers to have insurance to pay for injured Vermonters’ medical treatment and lost wages. Vermont workers’ compensation law provides these benefits, depending on your injuries:

  • Medical treatment necessary for your Vermont work injury.

  • Pay while you heal (known as Temporary Total Disability “TTD” benefits). This is 2/3 of your average weekly wages from the 26 weeks prior to the date you were injured or unable to work.

  • Permanent disability benefits if your Vermont work injury causes permanent impairment to your injured body part.

  • Mileage reimbursement to and from your medical appointments.

  • Vocational rehabilitation if you are unable to return to work due to your injury.

  • Permanent Total Disability benefits if you are not able to return to work at all.

"Our experience with Carey and her staff was above and beyond anything we could have hoped for!! From the first day we called Rose Law we knew we found the right place! Talking with Carey made us realize we were going to get through this awful time we were going through.
Carey was able to save us from losing our home to foreclosure!!!! We don’t know where we would be right now without her help!!! The settlement she was able to get for us was more than we ever expected!!!! That was all because of Carey’s knowledge and constant drive to get only the best result!!!! Without Carey, Libby and Terry this outcome would not have happened!!!!
We can not say enough about Rose Law and the help they gave us!! Thank you Carey, Libby and Terry!!! YOU ARE THE VERY BEST!!! We are forever grateful!"

"I was going through a difficult time in my Workman's Comp claim; I was told to seek legal advice. Best advice I received because in this process I found Rose Law Firm, Essex, VT
Carey, Terry and Libby are the best. Carey's positive attitude and knowledge helped me receive all benefits I was due; most of which I was not aware because WC insurance doesn't tell you. It is hard to put into words all that Carey and team did for me, there's so much I could write a book. I would 100% recommend Rose Law Firm for any WC claims. She has the knowledge and kept me informed in a way I understood. Kept close contact throughout this process. My case settled in a positive financial manner; I can happily move forward with my life."

"If I could give this firm 10 stars I would!! Carey, Terry and Libby are all so awesome! I absolutely recommend them! I was injured while working in late 2017 and my injury was immediately accepted by WC. I was able to continue to work with some restrictions, and for months WC covered weekly PT as well as visits to several specialists. When I discovered I was going to need a large and unique surgery, WC was quick to deny me coverage. A few weeks later I was laid-off from this job and a couple weeks after that WC filed to cut me off of all medical benefits. I didn’t know what to do, now I needed this major surgery but had no way of paying for it on my own. I was encouraged to seek legal counsel and not knowing how to find the right lawyer I called the Vermont Bar Association who gave me the number for Rose Law. I remember calling and explaining my situation and it was like they just scooped me up with open arms! They worked so hard to get me to where I am today! At almost 3yrs post injury and 2yrs post surgery I am finally at my medical end and Carey and the team were able to help negotiate an agreement with the WC ins co. I am very happy to finally have all of this behind me, it has been a long hard process but these ladies are so great and always made me feel so comfortable, they definitely had my back! Thank you all so much for everything!!"

"When I called Rose law. I was at a loss of what to do about my injury and the insurance company that was not responding or returning my calls. I learned there is little worse than trying to deal with a worker compensation insurance company while trying to heal from an injury and get back to work. With the help from the professionals at Rose law I may have never gotten the two surgeries approved by WC. Even with the Rose Law firm involved and dealing directly with the WC insurance agency, the WC company tried to only look out for themselves and even neglected to pay for the approved surgeries. If I was not supported by Rose Law, I could have been liable for the cost of the surgeries. Rose Law not only got me every possible benefit in regard to lost wages and medical treatment, but they went above and beyond to help me through all aspects of my recovery in a most professional manner. You will be fully taken care of by this firm. I would trust them with any case not only to get me the most compensation but to look out for my very best interest all around. During the process of working with Rose Law they found several times where I was not being granted a benefit that I was entitled to. Even though compensation is only a part of the healing process Rose Law likely got me at least double what I would have got on my own. This Firm Knows the rules, laws and the sneaky tactics of the insurance companies that only care about their bottom line and not your wellbeing. There is no way I would have got my surgeries paid for without this exceptional team. Thank you, Rose Law firm, for getting me fixed up and compensated fairly."

"The personal attention I received is remarkable and their determination is unmatched. I was always made to feel like I was their only client. Whether it was after hours, on the weekend, they were out of state on vacation or a holiday; If there was an issue they were available to me and looked out for my best interests even on their own time. Terry was my champion. Always going the extra mile and beyond to help. Always just a phone call away, happy to explain things to me, no matter how many times I've already asked the same question. All this made me feel safe, secure and protected. In 2011 I was injured at work and in early 2012 had surgery. The insurance company abruptly cut off my benefits, mid-rehab, and refused to pay for any future physical therapy as well as the sessions I had already attended. None of which was appropriate but because I was without legal representation I was unaware. In 2014 I contacted Carey hoping to get the insurance company to pay the unpaid bills. This is not how a law firm makes money but Carey took my case anyhow. She told me that she may be able to get the bills paid but did not think she could get my claim re-opened. However, thanks to the dogged determination of the team at Rose Law and Carey's knowledge of Work-Comp rules, my claim was reopened in full. It's been 5 plus years since she took my case, a second surgery and literally thousands of hours of P.T. (none of which would have happened without Rose Law) with hundreds of hours spent with me on the phone and all the while their concern was my best possible recovery. Never in that time was I brushed-off, rushed to settle nor was the concern about the firm getting paid. In fact, quite the opposite. It was always about my rights and my best recovery. In the end I received the utmost medical care possible and as a result my best possible recovery but only because I had Carey, Terry and Libby looking out for me. There is no way the insurance company would have paid for any of it unless Rose Law made them. Also, Carey skillfully negotiated a considerable settlement on my behalf which will help me immensely now and going forward. I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend Rose Law and in fact have already done so a number of times, and will continue to do so in the future. THANK YOU CAREY, TERRY and LIBBY!"

"I had a worker's compensation issue where they tried to cut me off of care even though I was still in pain and the insurance blamed it on my previous medical history, which was completely unfounded. I'd never dealt with something like this before but I knew I wanted an attorney who could get this situation over quickly, professionally, and fairly. After a month of hunting around, I decided to go with Rose Law Firm.Turns out I was owed money from worker's comp who hadn't paid me for things they should have or paid me incorrectly over the course of the case. I would never have known this if I didn't have Carey, Libby, and Terry on my side. I was embarrassed that I didn't know my rights, but I had clearly been taken advantage of and the Rose Law team was nothing but supportive and compassionate. In a few months, Carey had all the information she needed to get the money that was owed to me and file a settlement. All of her proceedings were explained to me clearly, and she or her team always got back to my calls within a couple of hours at most. Emails were always answered within 12 hours, no matter when it was sent. I was petrified of having to hire a lawyer but the Rose Law team was amazing, professional, always in touch, punctual with all paperwork, and most of all supportive and friendly. During one of the scariest and confusing times of my life, they all made sure I knew what was going on and why, and made sure I was okay with everything. I'm happy with my choice of law firms because I felt like they were truly invested in me and my case from day one. Not one complaint, not one criticism, and I would recommend them to anyone 100% every time with confidence."

"I was dealing with a workman's Comp case they were trying to low ball me and settle me out with out fixing the issue with my arm . After a friend recommended me to Carey I went in and spoke with her . Her knowledge of how the system works instantly convinced me to hire her on the spot . She fought hard and got the insurance company to repair my arm which was life changing for me .I can not thank her and her staff enough."

- S.F.

"If it wasn't for Carey I wouldn't have been able to get the treatments I needed and compensations I deserved. Carey was very good about getting me a response in a very quick manner, she always made sure I knew all my options and answered any questions I had. I would highly recommend Carey for your workers compensation needs. She went above and beyond for me!"

- J.S.

"I was injured at work in April of 2013 and had nothing but problems with the employer and their Workers Compensation insurer. I started searching for an attorney to help me to get the help I needed and found Carey Rose at Rose Law in Essex Vt. Not only did she get me the medical help that I needed, but also got me financial compensation while I was laid up and for my future as I will not be able to return to work. Carey and her Para-Legal Terry Bartizek went above and beyond to make sure that I was taken care of both medically and financially from start to finish. They are the best in the business for sure!"
