Permanent or Disabling Injury? Claim for Benefits Denied or Disputed?

Why hire a workers' compensation lawyer — and when is it necessary? Insurance disputes that require a fight for the benefits you deserve are common. Some people do become victims of wrongful termination because they have been injured and filed a claim. You likely need counsel and protection from a skilled, knowledgeable California workers' compensation attorney if:

  1. Your injury or work-related illness is serious, long-term and/or potentially disabling
  2. Your workers' comp claims has been unfairly denied, or you are suffering due to delays in payment of the benefits you need
  3. You have been fired since filing the claim — or you have reason to believe you will not be allowed to return to work in a comparable position
  4. You are dealing with harassment from the insurance company or your employer, including being followed by an investigator or sent to an independent medical examiner
  5. You are being sent to the company's doctor, who is biased toward the employer, perhaps not an M.D., and certainly not a specialist in the area required for proper assessment and treatment of your injury

All such situations call for a workers compensation lawyer who understands the rating tables and other complex aspects of the workers compensation filing, appeal and litigation processes.
