If you’ve been injured in a workplace in California during the scope of your employment by an anticipated and foreseeable risk of that employment, you’re probably eligible for benefits under the California Workers’ Compensation Code. You might have reported the injury and had it medically verified, but that doesn’t mean that your employer’s workers’ compensation insurer will pay you any benefits at all. If you feel you’re being ignored, you probably are because you haven’t retained an attorney to represent you in the workers’ compensation process.
Whether it’s a slip and fall or other injury, we can help you file a proper workers’ compensation claim and compel its consideration by your employer’s workers’ compensation insurer. If the insurer persists in ignoring or denying your claim, we’ll expedite it to hearing because we’re sympathetic with the hardship that an injury sustained at work has on you and your family.
