Workers Compensation Attorney

Workers Compensation Attorney

If you have suffered an on the job injury and are suffering physically, emotionally, and/or financially as a result, you can likely qualify for benefits under California's workers compensation laws. 

In California, as in other states, those who get injured accidentally at the workplace or while performing work-related duties off their employer's property, are entitled to collect a compensatory claim from their employer's state-mandated workers compensation insurance company.

But even when you have a valid claim and a basic idea of how California's workers comp system works, the details of which rules apply for particular injury types and of how to file and go through the whole process till you receive your claim, can be very complex.

There is no need, generally, to prove fault to collect on workers comp benefits, but if an employer was negligent, it's possible that fact could relevant in other respects. Plus, extreme negligence or self-inflicted injuries on the part of an employee could cancel his/her right to compensation.

Workers compensation will cover medical expenses stemming from an on-the-job injury, loss of income, retraining costs, expenses related to permanent injuries, and benefits to the survivors of one killed in an on the job fatality.

Wages are generally replaced at 2/3 of the average wage before the injury, but with a maximum cap applying too. And you cannot sue your employer for an injury you already collected workers comp benefits on.

At Orange County Workers Compensation Attorney, we understand how many lines of work expose employees to extreme danger of sudden injury and disability OR of chronic injuries through repetitive motions and daily stress. We stand ready to assist you in securing your rightful workers compensation benefits to remove the financial burden that may now be weighing down on you due to a work-related injury.

Workers' Comp

When you are injured in any number of ways while on the job, whether or not that means at the physical workplace of your employer, you are entitled to file for California workers compensation benefits off of your employers' (mandatory) workers comp insurance.

However, unless you file within specified deadlines, submit the proper paperwork in the right order, inform your physician that the injury he/she is treating is work-related, and take other crucial steps, you could lose your benefits, get a reduced benefit, or at least experience a major delay in receiving your workers comp benefits.

At Orange County Workers Compensation Attorney, we can guide you through the process of filing and pursuing your claim step by step.

You will need, for example, to file a DWC-1 workers comp claim form with basic information about who you are, what type of injury occurred, and where it occurred. You will then need to file a WCAB-1 Form for adjudication of your claim, which will require information on your employer’s insurer. (Information on your employer’s insurance company can be had from your employer or from the Workers Compensation Insurance Rating Bureau.)

And you'll also need to submit a Declaration form in which you swear you never asked any medical worker or institution to submit fraud information relevant to your injury.

If your employers' insurer ignores or denies your claim, you will have only a year to respond and fight back. If they provide some benefits at least for your claim, you have up to 5 years to complete your filing. If you are collecting workers comp benefits for a deceased spouse/relative who died in an on the job accident, you have up to a year from the date of death to file your full paperwork.

There are many potential legal twists and turns that could pop up in a worker’s comp claim process, and it is not advisable to try to simply file your claim without help from an experienced attorney who can guide you through the process and help ensure your claim is both approved and maximized.
