Thank you

My story began when I was injured at work. My severe chronic pain was getting me down and I was very frustrated because my employer wasn't reporting all of my wages. Many times I called my employer's Human Resource Department in Sacramento which compounded my situation trying to correct the amount of income. My calls were never returned.

That's when I looked up work comp attorneys in the phone book. The truth is, I prayed and asked the Lord to help me. My eyes went right to Benjamin Helfman and it was the easiest and best decision ever.

My injuries were numerous and serious. Many surgeries with severe pain and depression. During the course of my case I was sent 4 times to Sacramento to an agreed on work comp doctor. Each time I saw him he told me Ben Helfman knows medical and his clients file better than any other attorney. He also told me Ben Helfman is the best attorney that has ever taken his deposition. Ben Helfman understands chronic severe pain and depression and he arranged for me to see the best doctors and therapists.

You may ask yourself, why do I need an attorney? Having a work comp injury means you will be flooded with paperwork that needs a response in a very timely way. Ben Helfman and his entire team took all of it off my plate. His entire team took very good care of me. They also facilitated all my surgeries without one denial and made sure all my paperwork was answered, filed, authorizations were completed and never a piece of paper lost. Ben Helfman always calls you back no matter what. It's just incredible that I was never denied anything that was requested. That in itself is just amazing.

Worker's Compensation laws are ever changing. The thing you need to know for sure when you choose Ben Helfman for your attorney and that is this; he isn't "practicing" law, he knows the California Worker's Compensation laws completely. Trying to navigate your own case would be a disaster. Just trying to to keep up with court filings, appeals, referrals, negotiations and making sure your disability payments are based on all your wages including bonuses and overtime.

Personally, I absolutely could not have represented myself due to the chronic severe pain combined with the depression I experienced. Being out of work suddenly from an injury presents challenges like paying bills. It takes a toll after a while that's why I would refer any California injured worker to Ben Helfman's office. He will take very good care of you and protect you and knows your rights.

Ben Helfman of course won my work comp case and assisted in my getting approved for Social Security Disability on my first try. I feel as though I owe Ben Helfman and his entire team much more than his fee. He's brilliant and he was my answer to prayer.
