Any time you’ve been injured on the job or begun to experience symptoms from a work-related illness, you need all the advice you can get. The best way to get this advice, concerning your own specific and unique circumstances is to contact a California workers’ compensation attorney, such as those from the Sargent Law Firm. We provide free consultations to all injured workers in California, and we are happy to assist you in filing your claim and pursuing the compensation that you deserve. Having said that, there is a lot that you can learn from a bit of research into the California workers’ compensation laws and the history of the company that you work for, as well as their workers’ compensation insurance.
Of course, this is only a good place to start, and it will not give you insight into the specifics of your situation, your expenses, your disability, and your individual needs. You need to have a full understanding of your injuries, losses, and available benefits in order to plan for the future and know what to do through each step of the workers’ compensation process. There are many issues concerned with California workers’ compensation claims that you may not know about or may not have considered as they apply to your own unique injury and claim. For a full understanding of what you can expect from the process and from different variables that may apply to your injury and claim, contact the San Diego workers’ compensation attorneys for a free consultation today.
Information An Attorney Can Provide
When you contact the attorneys at the Sargent Law Firm, we’ll schedule a free consultation to discuss your claim as soon as possible. From there, we’ll provide the important advice that you need to understand your workers’ compensation claim and what you can expect to happen as you proceed through the necessary steps of seeking treatment and filing the claim. The Sargent Law Firm attorneys are well-versed in California’s workers’ compensation laws and the complications that many workers encounter when they begin to pursue a claim with their employer’s workers’ compensation insurance provider. We also work on a contingency fee basis, so that you get a free consultation to start with, and then if we don’t recover compensation for your claim, you don’t owe us anything. Following are some of the things that you will learn from our attorneys.
The workers’ compensation attorneys at the Sargent Law Firm are going to thoroughly research everything about your employer and your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance provider. We’ll then provide this information to you and calculate the rate of your temporary disability payments and/or permanent disability payments, depending on your injury and abilities. We will talk to you about your relationship with your employer and how this might be impacted when you file a claim. In some cases, filing a workers’ compensation claim could damage your relationship with your employer, but this is no reason to not seek the benefits that you deserve. It still helps to be prepared for any possible tension and complications that this could cause for you, especially in the way of employer retaliation, which is entirely illegal but may still occur.
Beyond this, we will evaluate the value of your California workers’ compensation claim, and we will be completely upfront and honest about this with the intention of assisting you with your future plans. While we cannot guarantee what your claim is worth, we can certainly give you a very good idea, and then help you to seek the maximum value of your claim and full benefits owed to you.
Further, we will assist you with understanding the process of filing a workers’ compensation claim in California, prepare you for the steps and potential hurdles that are ahead of you, and answer any questions that you may have about pursuing your benefits or responding to employer retaliation.
