It is frustrating to suffer an injury at work, especially when it prevents you from working and earning your full pay check. While there are legal options available to injured California workers, the system can be complex and it is not always easy to get the benefits that you deserve. For that reason, it is important to have the help of a lawyer as soon as possible after a work injury in order to properly complete the claim and navigate a possible denial.
As an injured worker, you have rights that should be protected. When you have a better understanding of your entitlements, you can make decisions that are truly in the best interests of you and your family. You deserve to have a full understanding of your options and the help of a lawyer who has a close understanding of the complexities of California’s workers’ compensation system.
There are ways by which you can fight for a beneficial outcome to your workers’ compensation claim. By employing certain methods, such as mediation, collaborative law or even arbitration, it is possible to resolve your legal disputes in an efficient manner. Even if your claim is initially denied, you have the option to appeal.
Workers’ compensation benefits are supposed to help those who have suffered a work injury of any kind. These benefits are intended to cover medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, lost wages and, when necessary, vocational retraining.
