Orange County Work Related Injury Lawyer
Most individuals go to work and do not expect to have an accident that results in an injury. The reality is that job- related accidents and occupational illnesses are not uncommon. If you have been injured on the job and are unable to work, our experienced attorneys can help you obtain workers’ compensation benefits.
What should I do if I am injured at work?
If you have been injured at work, you should immediately obtain first-aid or any other necessary medical treatment. You must also notify your employer in writing about the injury as soon as possible. If you fail to do so, you may forfeit your right to workers’ compensation benefits. In order to be eligible for benefits, you must also file a claim with the workers’ compensation board.
Workplace injuries and illnesses can have devastating and long-lasting consequences. If you have been injured at work, you need a highly skilled and compassionate attorney on your side. Not only are workers’ compensation laws complex, your employer or his or her insurance company may try to deny payment of your benefits. Our attorneys will fight to ensure that you receive the benefits you deserve. Attorneys fees are determined by state law and you will only pay a fee if you win a disability award.
