Fresno Workers' Compensation Benefits

Our Firm Is Prepared to Walk You Through the Process

If you have been injured on the job, it is imperative that you understand your rights and options to pursue the compensation your family needs during this difficult time. There are additional benefits besides temporary disability and permanent disability benefits that could be available for you.

Receive Thorough Medical Care

You are entitled to reasonable medical care. If appropriate, the Workers' Compensation Appeals Board (WCAB) may award lifetime medical care for a serious, work-related medical condition.

We can make sure you receive the best care that includes:

  • Doctor examinations
  • Hospital stays
  • Chiropractor work
  • Nurse responsiveness
  • Medicine
  • Braces
  • Canes
  • Hearing aids
  • Any necessary care ordered by a doctor

Workers' compensation may also provide for reimbursement for transportation to medical treatment and pharmacies.

Job Retraining Services

Besides medical compensation, you may be eligible for job retraining. If so, you will receive a voucher for $6,000 that can be put towards the school of your choice.

Death Benefits for Surviving Loved Ones

If a worker is killed on the job, or dies from complications that were caused or aggravated by their employment, you can receive benefits if you are the surviving spouse, minor child, or another dependent of the deceased worker.

These benefits can be substantial for families to help them recover from the loss of support. If the job-related injury was not the main cause, but contributed to the death, a dependent spouse and children may still be entitled to full death benefits. Our Fresno workers' compensation lawyers can even help survivors who are only partially dependent on the support of the deceased worker gain compensation.
