Workers compensation law in California can be complex, especially when you have insurance adjusters looking to protect profit instead of helping claimants. When filing a California workers’ compensation claim, insurance adjusters may offer you a less than favorable settlement for your pain stemming from your injury. However, you have the right to have a workers’ comp lawyer in your corner through the complex process.
At Ozeran Law, we help you pursue compensation and benefits for medical bills, hospital stays, doctor visits, physical rehabilitation, lost wages, and pain and suffering. However, there are steps you must take first.
If you are injured while working in California, you must first report your accident to your supervisor and/or employer. Reporting your accident means informing your employer of your accident, the time and date it occurred, how it happened, and if someone else was around when it happened. You must report your accident as soon as possible, typically within 30 days of the accident occurring.
After your injury, you may also go through your independent medical exam in which the insurance company’s medical provider will determine how severe your injury is, your treatment plan, and how long you may miss from work. When it’s time to file your workers’ compensation claim, you can request the paperwork from your employer. To ensure accuracy, though, it may be best to have a workers’ compensation attorney on your side to give you the advice you need during a challenging time.
A workplace injury is never easy to deal with, especially if insurance adjusters are less willing to work with you and provide you with the benefits you need. There are several benefits available to you if you work with a lawyer during the entire process:
Insurance adjusters are trained to deny claims. Make sure you have someone on your side who knows how to help you.
