Orange County Workers' Compensation Lawyer
Workplace Accident and Injury Claims in Southern California
When an Orange County worker is injured, he or she has the legal right to file a workers' compensation claim in order to seek benefits for his or her injuries. At Pacific Attorney Group, we are experienced injury attorneys dedicated to helping all types of employees file their workers' compensation claims and recover the full benefits to which they are entitled. It is our goal to assist our clients in receiving the money they deserve for medical care, lost wages, and the other workers' comp benefits that will truly help them rebuild and recover.
Many workers' compensation claims stem from accidents that occur at the workplace. No matter what field a person may work in, they may be at risk of being involved in an accident at some point or another. A construction worker may be seriously injured in a fall from scaffolding, a UPS driver may be injured in a car accident on the way to make a delivery, or an administrative assistant may trip and fall because of a defective or missing stair in the office. A key benefit of workers' compensation cases in California is that the injured worker does not need to prove that someone else caused an accident in order to recover benefits. The accident need only have occurred at work or been related to the duties associated with the injured worker's job. By reviewing the circumstances of your work accident, an attorney at our Orange County law offices can determine how best to assist you.

Workers' Comp Benefits - It's the Law
California employers are required by law to pay for workers' comp benefits. This is a no-fault program, meaning that it does not matter who was at fault for the accident or whatever incident led to the worker's injuries - even if it was the worker's fault. Under California workers' compensation law, benefits fall under six specific categories: medical care, temporary disability benefits, permanent disability benefits, supplemental job displacement benefits, vocational rehabilitation, and death benefits.
The value of an Orange County workers' comp claim and what types of benefits an injured work or his or her family may be entitled to receive will vary depending on the severity of the injury and what affect this will have on the worker's life.
Why a workers' comp attorney?
Although many workers' compensation claims are handled without real issue, disagreements may arise between the injured worker and the claims administrator in regard to the value of the claim or whether the injury occurred on the job and therefore qualifies for workers' compensation benefits. At times, employers may also exercise unethical practices in handling on-the-job accidents and injuries, placing a worker in jeopardy of receiving little to no workers' comp benefits whatsoever.
Working with an attorney places an injured worker more in control of the situation. An Orange County workers' comp attorney will understand the legal process associated with filing a claim as well as what a fair value of your claim should be. An attorney can then work from there in order to help ensure you receive the benefits you deserve. If any questions arise as to whether your injury was actually work-related or what amount of financial compensation you receive, or if your claim is denied, your attorney can address these situations immediately and protect your interests.
