Employers must carry workers’ compensation insurance in order to provide benefits for their employees if they are injured on the job. Most people believe that receiving workers’ comp benefits is a relatively straightforward process after a workplace injury. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Insurance companies have a lot of power. They also have a lot of money, and they do not like to part with it.
At Nordanyan Law, we have firsthand knowledge of the variety of tactics that insurance companies use to deny and underpay legitimate workers’ compensation claims. Prior to representing claimants, we have defended insurance companies involved in workers’ compensation cases. Now dedicated to helping injured people, we put this knowledge and experience to work for our clients daily.
We offer the following information for potential clients who have suffered injuries at work:
Whether you were injured in a car accident while driving for work, you are a temporary worker, you slipped and fell on the job or you suffered any other type of workplace injury, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, including medical and rehabilitation costs, and lost wages and compensation if your injuries cause permanent disability.
When an employee is injured at work, the employer and the insurance company are familiar with the process and the rules. The only person who doesn’t know what’s going on is the injured worker who also stands to lose the most during the process. Don’t wait to call an experienced California workers’ compensation attorney. If your claim gets denied, your options may be limited. There are strict deadlines and procedures that must be followed in order to obtain workers’ compensation benefits.
It is almost impossible for a layperson to ascertain what steps to take in the wake of an injury, or what mistakes to avoid. The attorneys at the Nordanyan Law firm guide clients through the whole process.
