Facing workers' compensation challenges in California

A system is in place designed to help cover medical costs, replace lost wages and otherwise provide for financial needs of employees who have been injured or become ill on the job. Most employers purchase this type of insurance as the law requires. Many California workers can relate to various types of complications that may arise when filing claims for workers' compensation benefits.

Workers often experience stress and frustration when they follow all requirements to submit a claim for comp benefits only to learn an employer has opposed it. Many have also had to battle for their rights when insurance agencies have denied their claims. For families greatly relying on benefits to make ends meet, a denial can mean financial ruin for those involved.

Ghitterman, Ghitterman & Feld are committed to acting on behalf of workers whose claims have been denied or are facing other challenges in connection with a particular workplace accident. The amount of benefits received varies. Much depends on severity of injury, how long an injured worker will be in recovery and various other factors.

The workers' compensation process can be complex. We are prepared to guide you through, making sure your rights are protected and you are given maximum opportunity to get the care you need and the benefits you deserve. If the evidence suggests that your employer was grossly negligent regarding your injury, we can discuss what options might be available to address that aspect of the situation in court.  By calling our California office to arrange a consultation, you can take the first steps toward as successful an outcome as possible.
