Work injuries can be stressful for a number of reasons. They are not only physically painful, but can have serious financial complications and can put one in fear of losing their jobs as a result of lost work. In today’s economy, employers have become much more difficult when it comes to how they treat workers, especially in regard to time lost from work. Regardless, however, it is important to realize that you have the protection of the state through workers’ compensation laws that protects you from employer retaliation in any form. When faced with the complexity of a workers’ compensation claim, retaining an Orange County workers compensation attorney can go far to ease your worries and help you get your claim through the system.
One of the most important things to do after any kind of work related accident or occupational disease diagnosis is to file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits. You must inform your employer soon after the accident or diagnosis. Without filing out the appropriate paperwork you claim for workers compensation benefits may be denied. Even if you have filed the appropriate paperwork, in many cases the insurance company will still deny your claim for benefits. In these cases, I recommend involving a lawyer immediately.
