Do I Qualify for Workers' Comp?

Help from an experienced workers' comp lawyer.

If you have been injured while performing your work duties, you may be concerned about whether your injury or condition will qualify you for workers' comp benefits. At The Law Offices of Jonathan M. Brand, an attorney can help you determine whether you qualify, as well as represent you in all the necessary filings for your claim. All physical, emotional and occupational injuries are covered by workers' compensation. Although it may seem that there is no question that you qualify, it can be a shocking surprise to have your claim disapproved. The firm urges you to work with their Oakland workers' compensation attorney, and increase the chances of getting your benefits paid, and reduce the chances of having your claim for benefits denied.

Workers' Comp Claims in Oakland, CA

When a claim is submitted, there must be full and complete documentation from a physician to support your request. A qualified medical evaluator (QME) will review your claim and make a decision about what benefits you should receive. If you are represented by our Oakland workers' compensation attorney, the lawyer will manage the process, including addressing any medical disputes. A doctor could be chosen that both parties agreed upon, called an agreed medical evaluator, or AME. There is a list of state certified physicians to choose from. Even if you have more than one injury, such as a back injury as well as an emotional condition that is work-related, your claim is usually evaluated by one party. There are certain cases in which a workers' compensation judge will request an additional evaluation for an added injury claim.

You must understand your rights and the benefits you can claim if you are hoping to resolve an injury claim on your own. Most find the filing of a claim to be stressful and difficult, and turn to an Oakland workers' compensation attorney for assistance. This allows you to be free from worry, and to be confident that everything possible is being done to get your claim paid in full, whether for temporary or permanent disability. In cases of permanent disability claims, the process can be complex, and it is very important both to you and your family that the claim is resolved in a timely manner. The legal team can help you immediately; call now.
