When you are hurt on the job and file a claim, you face confusing forms, paperwork, filings, and strict statute of limitation deadlines. To secure the medical care and financial compensation you’re legally entitled to, you need an experienced attorney whose skills are finely honed and backed by comprehensive, up-to-date knowledge of workers’ compensation’s complex and convoluted rules.
Unfortunately, by the time many of our clients find us, they’ve already talked to a lawyer they saw on TV or the internet who doesn’t specialize only in workers’ compensation but instead practices a wide variety of legal areas. Because workers’ compensation is highly complex and exceedingly different from any other area of law, a diligent focus on its intricacies is imperative for successful pursuit of the benefits you’re entitled to. Too often and too late, when an injured employee signs up with a law firm, they discover that’s the only time they’ll ever see an attorney because their case is turned over to paralegals and legal assistants. And I’ve heard too many times that other workers’ compensation lawyers don’t respond to phone calls promptly or at all, perhaps because they’re overloaded handling diversified areas of law.

Federal and California Laws Protect Injured Employees but You Have Only One Year to File A Claim
When you’ve been injured on the job because of dangerous, toxic, hazardous conditions, by law your employer is required to pay your medical care, temporary disability benefits, supplemental job displacement benefits, vocational rehabilitation, a return-to-work supplement, psychiatric or psychological care when needed, and 2/3 of your usual pay, tax-free.
A Wrongful Death Claim’s Strict Two-Year Deadline
Sadly, if you’re reading this page because a loved one was killed at work, you may be entitled to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Though nothing can replace your loved one, the law allows a grieving relative to collect benefits for the loss of income the deceased may have earned if they had not died. Also, you may be entitled to monetary compensation for the loss of your loved one’s companionship and affection, expenses related to medical bills for the care of the deceased prior to death, and funeral and burial expenses.
When a dependent child was left behind because of the death, there is a maximum cap on death benefits, but exceptions may be made when the amount to be awarded expires prior to the child becoming an adult. How to file a wrongful death claim or lawsuit is described on the State of California website for Riverside County, but you may decide that the process is too complex and difficult to handle on your own.
Choosing a law firm to handle your workers’ compensation case is a serious decision because you deserve the medical care and money you’re legally entitled to. So, you should exercise due diligence when hiring a law firm for your injury claim. Even if other attorneys claim to have workers’ compensation expertise, if their staff must switch focus from workers’ compensation to other practice areas, this may divert their full attention from your case.

No Up-Front-Cost Guarantee, No Exorbitant Fees
Because injured workers are already worried about their finances, many try to file a claim and handle the paperwork alone to cut costs and/or speed up the process. They’re worried an attorney is going to be too expensive or that hiring one will slow things down. But when you go it alone, the challenge becomes the tangled system of red tape, complex procedures, and the inflexible deadlines you’ll face. If you fill out the paperwork incorrectly and/or don’t file properly or on time, you will likely be forced to go through a lengthy appeals process. Such issues could significantly delay compensation or lead to your claim being denied altogether. In the long run, not hiring an attorney may cost you dearly.
