“My life was changed forever and turned upside down when I was struck on the head by a large board thrown out of a second story window by a negligent employee of a subcontractor on the site. It was shocking when my employer’s Workers’ Compensation insurance company denied the claim! Dan told me not to worry as we waited for a hearing to be scheduled.

He was always confident and reassuring and when he explained things to me, he displayed an incredible knowledge of the Workers’ Compensation law. He was able to expose my employer’s attempt at trying to change the facts in order to deny me coverage that was rightfully mine. Sure enough, we won. I got all my back pay and am covered for life. Now, he is going after the insurance company for the subcontractor whose employee caused my devastating injuries. I can’t recommend Dan Earnshaw highly enough.”
