If you have been injured while performing your job duties, you may be eligible to obtain workers’ compensation benefits to help pay for medical expenses and cover lost earnings. However, it is not uncommon for an employer or its insurance company to deny legitimate workers’ comp claims. To ensure you recover your entitled benefits, having a lawyer on your side can ensure your rights and best interests are protected.
Crossroads Law Group, LLP knows how devastating work-related injuries can be, especially if it forces you or a loved one to miss significant time from work or not being able to work again. Our Ventura legal team can help you file your paperwork, meet the deadlines, negotiate with insurers, maximize recovery, and even appeal your case if necessary. Not only do we care about helping you recover from injury, but we also want to make sure you can provide for your family.
As soon as the injury occurs, you must notify your employer immediately. Unless you require emergency medical attention, you should do this before seeking treatment from an employer-approved physician. Failure to report your work-related injury within 30 days could make you ineligible for workers' compensation.
After receiving treatment, your employer should provide a workers' comp claim form (i.e. Form DWC-1) and inform you of your rights. Once you complete and submit the form, your employer's insurance company may authorize payment for medical expenses and even start paying you temporary disability benefits.
