Retain the Services of Experienced Workers’ Compensation Specialists

In California, workers’ compensation is a state-regulated insurance program that functions as a “no fault” system. Businesses are legally required to offer workers’ compensation benefits to part-time, full-time, and seasonal employees. If a worker is injured on the job, the employer’s insurance company can pay for their medical treatments, lost wages, and more.

Workers’ compensation incorporates 5 different types of benefits:

  1. Medical benefits
  2. Temporary disability benefits
  3. Permanent disability benefits
  4. Supplemental job displacement benefits
  5. Death benefits

However, it’s not unusual for an employer or their insurance company to deny a workers’ compensation claim. After all, insurance companies aren’t in the business of losing money, and your employer probably doesn’t want to pay for increased premiums. Many employees feel unmoored and betrayed once their claims are denied. However, before you give up hope in your hour of need, turn to The Bridgeford Law Office. Two of our lawyers, Mark K. Bridgeford and Gary W. Allen, are Certified Workers’ Compensation Specialists who are ready and willing to fight for your right to benefits.

Workers’ compensation covers a variety of illnesses and injuries, including:

  • Occupational illnesses and diseases
  • Preexisting conditions exacerbated by work conditions
  • Neck and spinal cord injuries
  • Slip and fall injuries
  • Joint conditions
  • Hearing or vision loss
  • Repetitive trauma injuries
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Job-related mental health conditions

You can protect your right to benefits by seeking medical attention as soon as you notice or acquire your occupational injury or illness. During your appointment, ask the doctor to add that your condition is work-related in your medical record. This record is vital evidence that can support your claim. You also need to give your employer a written notification of your medical condition. It’s imperative that you keep a signed and dated copy as proof. You can rely on our team to effectively guide you through each step of this multifaceted legal process.
