If you were injured on the job, you may be eligible for compensation for your losses and damages. In California, filing a claim for workers’ compensation will allow you to receive compensation for your losses. Nevertheless, it is essential to recognize that workers’ compensation benefits may not cover all of your losses. In many instances, workers may be able to file a lawsuit against a third party – a person or organization other than their employer – but may be unaware of this possibility.
This is why it is crucial for injured workers or families who may have lost a loved one on the job to contact an experienced work injury attorney who will be able to guide them through a potentially complex and difficult-to-navigate process.
In most instances, claims adjusters for insurance companies and attorneys employed by your employer will not act in your best interest. They may not consider your other options for seeking and obtaining compensation. This is where our work injury attorneys can help you gain the upper hand.
We can assist you in determining the value of your case, evaluating the scope of your losses, and identifying the parties who are liable or responsible due to our expertise in handling work injury cases and third-party claims. These are essential steps in a case involving a workplace injury; without them, you may not receive adequate compensation for your losses.
What Should A Good Work Injury Attorney Do?
There are numerous ways in which a skilled work injury attorney can help tip the scales in your favor. The following items are the most crucial.
- Compile Evidence
Work injury victims must prove the defendant’s negligence to receive compensation. Our work injury attorneys can help you gather and compile crucial evidence that could win your case. We can collect all your medical records and treatment documentation.
We can arrange or recommend doctors and obtain medical opinions from your treating physicians through an independent medical examination. We can also represent you at an oath-taking deposition. We also depose medical experts.
- Negotiate Settlements
Our work injury lawyers will assess the value of your case based on a number of factors, including the extent of your injuries and how they limit your routine activities, including your ability to work; your past and future medical expenses; whether you will have lasting impairments or disabilities; the wages and earning capacity you are likely to lose due to your impairments.
- Provide You With Peace Of Mind
Workers who have been hurt on the job frequently have the concern that they can’t afford to retain the services of an experienced work injury attorney. Because we operate under a contingency fee arrangement, this means that we will not charge you any fees upfront and will only be paid if your case is successful.
