A Full-Service Workers’ Compensation Firm Providing The Knowledge And Help You Need
If you’ve been injured at work, you’d think it should be quick and easy to seek benefits under California’s workers’ compensation system. Unfortunately, many injured workers have the opposite experience. The state’s workers’ compensation system is often dysfunctional, slow and unnecessarily complex – all of which is to the benefit of employers and insurance companies and to the detriment of injured workers such as yourself.
The good news is that you don’t have to fight alone. At Workers' Compensation Lawyer, Inc., our entire practice is devoted to helping regular people claim the benefits they are entitled to under California law. When you hire us, your case will be a whole-firm priority. Our two attorneys and a team of dedicated staff work collaboratively to give each case and client the attention they deserve. We are dedicated to fighting for the Average Joe®.
Comprehensive Legal Representation And Guidance In Workers’ Compensation Law
Many attorneys can help you fill out claim paperwork, but workers’ compensation law is much more complex than simply filing a claim. Our experienced workers’ compensation attorneys will guide you through all aspects of your case because we know the workers’ compensation system inside and out.
Here are just some of the services we provide:
Compliance with all requirements: Claims can be rejected for the smallest mistakes, from failing to report your injury in a timely manner to failing to seek medical care immediately after the accident. If you seek our help as soon as possible, we can ensure that these procedural and clerical errors don’t slow down or derail your claim.
Effectively documenting injuries and filing claims: Some workplace accidents and injuries are straightforward and obvious, while others require much more documentation, medical corroboration and supplemental evidence. One example of the latter is claims related to exacerbation and aggravation of a previous injury. No matter how complex your case is, we will help you present the strongest possible claim for benefits.
Analyzing and appealing denied claims: There are dozens of reasons why a claim may be denied. If you are trying to navigate the system on your own, you may have no idea how to respond to a rejected claim. We will help you analyze what went wrong and how to fix it when appealing the decision.
Protecting your job and your rights: It is illegal for employers to retaliate against employees just for seeking workers’ compensation benefits. Unfortunately, some employers harass, demote or even fire their workers in retaliation for filing a claim. We will help you protect your rights and your job.
Filing a separate lawsuit against a negligent third party: California law generally prohibits workers from suing their employers after a workplace accident in exchange for providing workers’ comp benefits. But if your injuries were caused by a third party unrelated to your employer (or a co-worker for the same employer), you can file what’s known as a third-party liability claim. This lawsuit would help you claim financial damages in addition to your workers’ compensation claim.
