When it comes to filing a California workers’ compensation claim, it’s important to know how some insurance companies work. Unfortunately, if you’re injured while working, insurance companies may not be as willing to pay out compensation as you’d like. Because of the struggles that may arise, it may be hard to obtain compensation and benefits for your pain after an injury. However, our Los Angeles workers’ compensation attorney at Ozeran Law is here to help you.
Seeking compensation is something that needs to be done after a workplace injury to protect your rights. However, insurance companies often require that you take specific steps that help you protect your rights. These steps are vital to your ability to obtain compensation, and include the following things:
When you file your claim, you’re going to work with insurance adjusters who represent the insurance company. They’ll be friendly and seem empathetic to the fact that you suffered an injury. However, when your pain requires compensation for medical bills, hospital stays, doctor visits, physical rehabilitation, lost wages, and pain and suffering, they’re not so quick to offer you a favorable settlement.
Your claim threatens profits, and the more they pay out, the more of a loss they take. Insurance adjusters will try and use tactics that protect themselves, not you. To combat these tactics and protect your rights, you should have a lawyer on your side who knows the law, including the insurance company’s responsibility to pay out benefits when you need them.
An attorney can also help you determine which option is best for you: a settlement or weekly benefits.
