Injured workers often face complicated legal challenges after reporting their accidents to employers. Filing compensation claims after workplace accidents is part of the typical process set up to provide benefits to employees who have been hurt on the job to help pay medical bills and replace lost wages. Obstacles arise, however, when an employer or insurance company attempts to deny an injured worker's claim. In California, those facing such circumstances often choose to retain legal assistance, rather than battling alone to protect their rights.
The Law Office of Wm. Todd Berry, APC, provides customized service to injured employees throughout the state. Getting the maximum compensation deserved after being injured on the job is often difficult to achieve due to recent changes in California law. Our legal team can help clarify the laws and determine the best course of action to ensure that your rights are protected.
Depending on the severity of a workplace injury, an employee may be unable to return to job duties for an extended period of time. Ongoing medical treatment or physical therapy can add financial burden to other challenges already being faced in recovery. When a worker is denied the compensation deserved to help alleviate those costs, it simply makes matters worse.
The Law Office of Wm. Todd Berry, APC, can advise you with regard to any requests you've received to settle a claim. We can also offer guidance regarding potential long-term care that may be needed in situations where permanent injuries have been suffered in workplace accidents. Regardless of the events that led to your injury, if you would like to discuss the situation with an experienced workers' compensation attorney, you can call our California office to request a consultation.
