Orange County Workers' Compensation Claims & Benefits
How do I know if I'm eligible to receive workers' compensation benefits?
All California employers are required to have
workers' compensation insurance for any
accidents or injuries that occur at the workplace or while on the job. If you have questions about whether your particular injury qualifies for workers' comp benefits, an attorney at our law firm can meet with you to talk about exactly what occurred and whether you should be entitled to benefits.
What if I was at fault?
workers' compensation law, it does not matter if you were partially or entirely at fault in causing the accident. You do not have to prove that someone else was the reason for your injuries in order to recover compensation.
My workers' comp claim was denied. What can I do?
Not all workers' compensation claims are automatically approved. If your claim was
workers' comp lawyer can work to file an
appeal and therefore give you another opportunity at recovering the benefits you deserve.
Will I be fired or punished for filing a workers' compensation claim?
By law, your employer does not have the right to punish or fire an employee simply for exercising his or her right to file a workers' compensation claim. In fact, if you were wrongfully terminated after filing a claim, you may have a separate lawsuit against your employer to seek financial damages.
Do I really need to work with an attorney?
Making the choice to involve an
Orange County workers' comp attorney is personal. By retaining professional legal counsel, however, you grant yourself the opportunity to ensure your rights are protected and that the insurance company does not take advantage of you or offer you a settlement below the true value of your claim.
