Need assistance filing a worker's comp claim or appealing a denial?
Worker's compensation should cover the full extent of your injuries, but the claims process can be difficult. Some claims are delayed or denied, jeopardizing a worker’s ability to recover benefits. That is why we recommend at least discussing your case with a California worker's compensation attorney at our firm. Though some claims may prove straightforward and legal counsel may be unnecessary, there are complex claims and disputes that can benefit from the attention of a skilled attorney.
It is important to seek legal counsel if you have been injured at work. Even if you believe you were to blame, you are probably still covered (unless you were under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the incident).
A lawyer can advise you on special situations and can help if your claim has been disputed, delayed or denied. With our resources, our firm can work to ensure that your claim is properly valued and that sufficient pressure is put on your employer and/or worker's comp insurance provider to seek a fair settlement.

If you have been injured at work or diagnosed with a work-related illness, you probably have questions. You may be unsure of what steps to take immediately after the accident or diagnosis. Here, you can find out what to do so you protect your right to receive workers’ comp benefits.
The benefits provided under the worker's compensation system will vary depending on the case, primarily on the extent of injury the worker has sustained. In California, there are five types of benefits: medical care, temporary disability benefits, permanent disability benefits, supplemental job displacement benefits and death benefits.
Workplace accidents are the most common cause of work-related injuries, and these can affect virtually any type of worker in any occupational setting. Our firm takes on worker's compensation claims for: slip and fall accidents, falling object injuries, work-related auto accidents, construction accidents and more.
What happens when a worker's compensation claim is denied? This may occur if a claims administrator does not believe an injury should be covered. Incomplete applications, insufficient documentation and other issues may lead to a denial. Fortunately, our attorneys know how to appeal denied claims to help our clients seek positive results.
