Our Lawyers Know How Workers’ Comp Works in San Bernardino, CA

California law requires all businesses with employees to provide workers’ compensation insurance coverage for all workers beginning their first day on the job. They can provide this policy from a private insurer or the State Compensation Insurance Fund. This insurance should pay if the worker:

  • Suffers an injury in a work-related accident
  • Has a work-related chronic injury
  • Receives a diagnosis of a work-related illness

When an injured or ill worker needs medical care and misses work, their workers’ compensation policy should provide the following benefits: 

  • Cuidados Médicos: Treatment for your on-the-job injury or illness 
  • Salarios perdidos: Temporary or permanent disability payments when you cannot work because of your injury or illness
  • Supplemental Job Displacement: Vouchers to pay for training, retraining, or skill enhancement to help you return to the workforce in a different capacity
  • Beneficios por muerte: Money for the dependents of the deceased if they die from their workplace injuries or illness

Our San Bernardino Workers’ Compensation Attorneys Understand How These Cases Can Go Wrong

Unfortunately, it is not always easy for injured or sick workers to get the benefits they need, including covered medical care and compensation for lost wages. Some of the ways workers’ compensation claims can go wrong include when your employer’s workers’ compensation insurer:

  • Denies your workers’ compensation claim entirely
  • Argues that your injuries were not work-related
  • Grants only a small portion of your lost wages
  • Demands you return to work before your doctor approves
  • Cuts off your workers’ comp benefits before you can return to work

While there is a process in place for workers to challenge these decisions, it can be difficult or impossible to prove your case and resolve these disputes on your own. Having a knowledgeable workers’ compensation lawyer to represent you allows you to focus on healing while we build a strong case on your case. 

Trust Our San Bernardino Attorneys to Secure Your Workers’ Compensation

Our workers’ compensation lawyers know how to challenge a denial or deal with another issue with your benefits. Call us as soon as things go wrong, and we will discuss your options and how we can appeal the decision for you.

Under some circumstances, the workers’ compensation insurance carrier may offer you a settlement. This is most common when you reach maximum medical improvement (MMI) but cannot return to the workforce. It is vital you understand the value of your case before agreeing. Let our San Bernardino, CA, workers’ compensation attorneys assess your case and negotiate a fair settlement for you. 

How to Protect Your Workers’ Compensation Case

There are a few things you can do to protect your right to workers’ compensation benefits: 

  • Report your injury to your employer immediately in writing. You have 30 days to do so; if you don’t, the insurer can deny your claim. We recommend doing so as soon as possible in writing so you don’t forget and your employer can’t claim they didn’t know. 
  • Get medical attention immediately.
  • Don’t do anything that might jeopardize your right to benefits (e.g., don’t help your friend build a deck if you’re claiming workers’ comp for a back injury).
  • Keep detailed records.
  • Call a lawyer.
