Irvine Workers’ Compensation Attorney

Protecting the Rights of Injured Workers throughout California

In California, all employers (with very limited exceptions) must provide workers’ compensation insurance for their employees. This insurance is meant to protect workers who are injured on the job or while conducting duties within the scope of their employment. However, recovering the rightful workers’ compensation benefits you are owed is not always easy.

At Alpine Law Group, our Irvine workers’ compensation lawyer can help you navigate the process of filing a workers’ compensation claim or disputing a denied claim. We have extensive experience in this area, as well as a proven track record of securing favorable results for our clients. Let us fight for you.

Contact Alpine Law Group online or by phone at (800) 984-4123 for a free, confidential consultation.

What to Do If You Are Injured at Work

While many work-related accidents and injuries occur within the actual workplace, it is important to note that any accident that occurs or injury that is sustained while an employee is carrying out duties related to his or her job is typically covered by workers’ compensation. The most common exception to this is when an employee is injured due to his or her own negligence or wrongful behavior.

If you are injured at work or while working, you should do the following:

  • First and foremost, seek medical attention. Even if you believe that you are not seriously injured, you may have underlying injuries that can take time to appear. It is important that you seek prompt medical treatment not only for your own safety and well-being but also to establish that your injuries were serious enough to warrant medical attention.
  • Next, report the incident and your injuries to your employer. In most cases, you will need to provide written notice of your injuries to your employer within 30 days of the accident. You will also need to file an official workers’ compensation claim with your employer (if done within the 30-day time frame, this can serve as your written notice of injury).
  • You will need to receive medical treatment for your injuries from an approved medical provider. This medical provider is approved by the workers’ compensation insurance company. You may be able to go to a new doctor after a certain amount of time, however, there are restrictions and limitations to this. Speak to an attorney at our firm to learn more about your rights.
  • Once you have selected a doctor within the approved network, you will need to make sure that you attend all appointments and follow all of the doctor’s instructions. This is an important part of your recovery, as well as an important requirement of workers’ compensation.

What to Do If Your Claim Is Denied

There are many reasons that you the insurance company may deny your workers’ compensation claim—not all of which are valid. The insurance company may try to assert that you were not really injured or that you were not injured while at work/while working. It may also claim that you don’t really need medical treatment or that you can return to work when, in reality, you are not able to do so.

If your workers’ compensation claim is denied, you don’t have to give up hope. You may still be able to recover compensation for your lost wages and medical bills. But first, you will need to speak to a qualified workers’ compensation lawyer who can help you understand your legal options and fight your claim denial.
