Workers’ compensation is a system that allows people who sustain an injury at work to get payment for their medical treatments as well as a percentage of their wages during recovery. Besides temporary payments, if an employee suffers a serious or life-altering injury, they may be able to get permanent compensation from their employer. The Blackman Law Firm will protect your rights and fight for your fair compensation if your employer wrongly denies or underpays your workers’ compensation claim.
The Blackman Law Firm represents injured people throughout Southern California with their workers’ compensation claims from our Santa Ana office. If your employer is denying, underpaying, or dragging their feet with your workers’ compensation claim, we can fight on your behalf. We are capable litigators who protect the rights of those injured in many kinds of accidents.
To file a workers’ compensation claim, you must be an employee and your injury must occur at your workplace. Once you are injured, your employer should begin covering your medical treatments and paying your wages. Unfortunately, an employer may try to deny a person’s rightful workers’ compensation claim or force them back to work before their full recovery.
Nearly all work-related injuries qualify for workers compensation, including:
If you lost a loved one in a workplace accident, your family may be able to receive death benefits or file a wrongful death suit. Our attorneys will thoroughly investigate what happened to your loved one and find out if their employer was negligent. If we are able to file a wrongful death suit, you may be able to recover compensation based on the loss of income, emotional support, and other damages.
Workplace injuries can be expensive to treat and may cause permanent damage. If your employer does not respond to your claim or if they deny your claim outright, call our office immediately. We are proven employment law attorneys who will pursue your fair compensation.
