You have rights after being injured at work. Your life may forever change after a workplace accident so it is important to file a workers' compensation claim to help with your lost wages, medical expenses and other bills.
With so much at stake, strong legal representation is vital. We can help at JML Law, A Professional Law Corporation.
What Does Workers' Compensation Cover?
Financial compensation from workers' compensation benefits should cover most losses and damages that you incur from being injured at work or if a family member is killed in a work-related accident. Losses covered by workers' compensation include:
- Medical expenses
- Mileage expenses for travel related to your injury and recovery
- Lost wages or income (typically two-thirds of your weekly pay at the time the injury occurred)
- Temporary or permanent disability
Our attorneys assist workers injured in construction accidents and those suffering from all types of injuries. We know you may have questions about your rights and what benefits are available. Visit our FAQ page to learn more about common workplace accidents.
The Importance Of Getting Legal Counsel Right Away
Your employer or its insurance provider can challenge any part of your claim. The insurance company can require an independent medical exam (IME) by a physician of its choice, who is typically not favorable to workers. We can help you challenge this IME, get a second opinion and see a doctor of your choice for treatment.
Our workers' compensation attorneys can help challenge several aspects of the insurance company's case, which often attempts to deny, delay and diminish work injury compensation. We have over 40 years of experience advocating for injury victims in Woodland Hills, Los Angeles County, Orange County and San Francisco and throughout California, and we can help you secure maximum compensation while seeing an approved doctor of your choice within the California Medical Provider Network (MPN).
If you were injured by a dangerous or defective product, you might have an underlying third-party liability injury claim worth pursuing against a manufacturer, distributor, retailer or another liable party in addition to your workers' compensation claim. This will complicate your legal case, but we can help you navigate the road to maximizing your injury compensation.
Advocating For The Best Possible Outcome
Our lawyers can help you appeal insurance denial on several levels and guide you through the process. We are also very experienced in pursuing wrongful termination claims against employers. We will aggressively advocate for your best possible outcome in all legal forums and resolve legal disputes in your best interests.
Our goal is to aid your recovery as much as possible, help you get back to work and allow you to have peace of mind in the process. We work to ensure that your past, present and future medical and financial needs are covered.
