How We Can Help

California state law requires all employers to either carry workers' compensation insurance or be self-insured. Workers' compensation benefits are intended to help you get through this difficult time. Our firm can assist you with all types of workers' compensation concerns, including those related to:

  • Permanent and temporary disability benefits: We aim to recover all medical expenses related to your workplace injury or illness. These include the cost of hospital stays, surgeries, in-home nursing, prescription drugs, mileage reimbursement and more. Benefits also include checks to help cover your lost wages.
  • Medical evaluations: Before you can be approved for benefits, you must be examined by a qualified medical evaluator (QME). Such QMEs are certified by the Division of Workers' Compensation and may include physicians, dentists, chiropractors, optometrists, neurologists, orthopedic surgeons and other medical professionals. However, what you need to know – and what few people will tell you – is that the medical specialty you choose can have a profound impact on whether your claim is approved or denied. Let us provide the detailed guidance you require.
  • Denied claims: Our lawyers can educate you about utilization reviews and independent medical reviews, which come into play when an insurance company denies your workers' compensation claim. Our attorneys are also skilled at appealing such denied claims and pursuing justice.

Let us answer your questions about workers' compensation law in California. We can explain how to choose the right attorney, what to do if you're fired for filing a claim, why it's worthwhile to retain a lawyer and much more.
