Workers' Compensation Claim Assistance

Most injured or ill employees are not ready for the challenges of a workers’ compensation claim. The process is time-consuming and intricate.

In 2023, injured or ill employees filed over 14,000 workers’ comp claims in California. Approximately half of these claims are currently denied or delayed. There are injured employees without means to a full and rightful recovery.

Workers' Comp Claim Services

We can provide the following if you are injured or become ill from the job:

File Claim
Our law office will assemble and file necessary documentation to prevent delay or denial.

Medical Treatment
Our law office will promptly select a treating physician from the Medical Provider Network to secure treatment for your injuries.

Temporary Disability
We will determine if you qualify for temporary disability (T.D.) payments. You may be eligible to receive payments equal to 2/3 of your weekly average income if:

  • Your company does not provide you with alternate work that pays your regular earnings while you recover.
  • Our examining physician suggests that you are totally disabled. You cannot perform any work at all.

Delayed Claim
The carrier has 90 days to investigate if there is a delay in the workers’ compensation claim. They must also decide on acceptance or denial. Our law office will ensure the workers’ comp insurance company pays up to $10,000 in medical care.

Denied Claim
The insurance carrier is not required to pay any temporary disability benefits if your worker’s comp claim is denied. They are also not required to provide medical care.

Our firm will use its resources to find a physician who accepts the workers’ compensation claim. The physician will also take medical expenses on a lien basis.

Your claim will likely settle or proceed through litigation and trial with our firm.
