Hire A Good Workers Compensation Lawyer

If you care about your health, hire a competent workers compensation lawyer. Do not put your trust in a disreputable workers compensation lawyer. Ventura County, like the rest of California, has unscrupulous workers compensation lawyers. Some of these firms are run by workers compensation lawyers who never visit their offices. Instead they have employees or independent contractors who are not lawyers handle workers compensation cases. These non-attorneys may also run the law firm.

Do you want a non-lawyer to handle your job injury case? Understand that in order to appear at the Workers Compensation Appeals Board (the court system for work injuries in California) the employee representative does not have to be a licensed attorney. Believe it or not, many workers compensation firms send representatives to the Workers Compensation Appeals Board hearings who are not licensed attorneys. The bottom line is there are many doctors you would not want to operate on your body. You do not want certain workers compensation firms to represent you in your work injury case.

Common work injuries include:


. BACK INJURIES (HERNIATED DISCS)

. BRAIN INJURIES FROM WORK ACCIDENTS

. BROKEN BONES THAT TAKE A LONG TIME TO HEAL

. CARPAL TUNNEL

. DISFIGUREMENT INCLUDING BURNS, AMPUTATIONS, AND THE LOSS
OF BODY PARTS

. HEARING LOSS

. NECK INJURIES

. SPINAL CORD INJURIES DUE TO WORKPLACE ACCIDENTS

. WORK STRESS

Work Injuries can cause temporary and/or permanent disability. The value of your workers compensation case depends on the severity of the work injury and whether it is temporary or permanent.

How Much a Work Injury is Worth depends on many factors including the amount you earned at the time of the work accident, whether the workers compensation injury has temporary or permanent effects, the length of the disability, disability ratings assessed in the workers compensation proceedings, the part of the body injured, and the type of work you are trained to perform. However, the amount you will receive for your work injury is very much governed by the quality of your attorney as a negotiator, the attorney doing what is possible to get you the right medical treatment, and your attorney's selection of a fair doctor to evaluate your injuries if at all possible.
Terminated Due to a Work Injury? We are labor lawyers. Our firm handles employee termination cases. If you were fired due to a work injury your remedy may be a 132a claim in the workers compensation system which leads to penalties the employer must pay. However, if your work injury caused long term disability or you were eligible for Family Medical Leave (CFRA Leave in California) we may be able to represent you on a wrongful termination case. Our law firm is in a position to evaluate whether your loss of employment due to a work injury is something you can take legal redress for. Most firms evaluating a work injury case are unable to properly advise you on your rights to a wrongful termination lawsuit.

We regularly take calls, and case inquiries via e-mail, from injured workers on matters that will be filed at the Oxnard Workers Compensation Appeals Board, Van Nuys Workers Compensation Appeals Board [CLICK HERE FOR OUR SAN FERNANDO VALLEY SITE], Los Angeles Workers Compensation Appeals Board CLICK HERE FOR OUR LOS ANGELES SITE], Long Beach Workers Compensation Appeals Board, Pomona Workers Compensation Appeals Board, Bakersfield Workers Compensation Appeals Board, Santa Ana Workers Compensation Appeals Board, and Anaheim Workers Compensation Appeals Board. In an attempt to represent employees and injured workers, we travel to many different locations of adjudication and maintain many different offices.
