Robert Ozeran is a Los Angeles, California Workers Comp Lawyer working with factory injuries for over a decade. For countless factory workers, they go into their workplace in hopes of it being a safe environment. Unfortunately, factories are some of the more dangerous locations for workers. In many situations, workers who suffer injuries in factories have the legal rights to pursue compensation through workers’ compensation claims, or potentially through a lawsuit in different situations. If you work in a factory in California, and you suffer an injury, it’s vital to recognize how to pursue compensation.
Some of the most dangerous situations in factories that may allow you to pursue compensation include the following:
In very few situations, you may be unable to recover compensation through workers’ compensation, such as if your own horseplay and actions resulted in your injury. Whether you’re filing a workers’ compensation claim or through a third-party lawsuit, you’re going through insurance companies to pay for your compensation. Unfortunately, insurance companies prioritize profits over anything else, and they’re quick to deny rightful claims when you need it the most.
Working with an attorney can help protect you from some of the tactics insurance companies use to deny your claim. Having legal counsel keeps your focus on your recovery while your lawyer helps handle the legal conversations with insurance adjusters. Some insurance adjusters will use recorded statements, pre-existing injuries, a lapse in coverage, or a delay in medical care to deny or minimize your claim.
An attorney stands on your side, building a strong case strategy on your behalf to keep insurance adjusters honest. A lawyer understands the California laws, the type of compensation you may be able to recover, and the most effective ways to safeguard your case, such as reporting your accident as soon as you can after it happens.
Without a lawyer, you run the risk of losing out on compensation that you rightfully deserve.
