You have the right to benefits through workers’ compensation

On Behalf of | Oct 13, 2016 | Workers' Compensation |

If you are employed in California, you have certain rights in the event that you are injured in a work accident or become ill due to unsafe work conditions. You are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, which includes medical treatment, recovery of lost wages and even vocational training if you are unable to return to the same job. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to claim these benefits without appropriate legal help.

Depending on the nature of your injury, you may be unable to work for an extended amount of time. Your recovery may be long and painful, and mounting bills and financial concerns can make it all worse. You may even have concerns about losing your job and your ability to return to the same line of work and providing for your family.

It is important to file your workers’ compensation claim as soon as possible after a work accident. Your employer may not prevent you from doing this, nor can your supervisor or employer prevent you from seeking appropriate medical treatment. We know what you are going through, and we can help you protect your rights, obtain the benefits you need and get the care that you deserve.

It is not uncommon for workers’ compensation claims to be denied. While this is unfortunate, we can help you fight back. Our California team is on your side, and we will advocate for your full recovery and financial interests. Do not navigate the claims process alone, but schedule your case evaluation with our team as soon as possible after an accident at work.
