Examining the Workers' Compensation Process in California

There can be no denying the fact that the claims process can be a complicated one. Very often, filing for workers' comp is nothing less than a trying experience that is filled with angst, unease and sometimes even discomfort. However, this does not have to be the case, and with a lawyer from the firm on your side, it won't be. Taking direction from a professional with more than two decades of experience in the field, you can rest soundly knowing that your case is in the hands of an attorney who not only knows what they're doing, but one who has proven time and again their ability to handle cases of this nature with abundant success. You need only look at the firm's past settlements and verdicts, or even the team's client testimonials to understand just how valuable the services of an Oakland attorney from the firm can be.

One of the first aspects of your case that will be reviewed by the firm is your workers' comp eligibility. Once it has been established that you meet the criteria to apply for the financial and medical rewards offered to victims through workers' compensation, you can then continue moving forward with the recovery process. From here, important decisions will be made both by you and your representative attorney as well as by other officials in the field. For example, a crucial aspect to your case will be determining if workers' comp or personal injury is the best claim to be made on your behalf. In so doing, you can better move forward with your case, confident in the direction you will be taking to obtain the compensation you need to afford your medical treatment / bills or even your wage loss.

As you attempt to recover the benefits of workers' compensation, you may be asked to submit to a qualified medical evaluation where a certified physician will evaluate your injury or illness and determine the extent and brevity of the situation. This information will then be further assessed during the panel QME process that will ultimately determine whether or not you are permitted workers' compensation and how much will be provided to you. Taken into consideration when applying workers' comp benefits will be when you will make your return to work and whether you are on permanent disability or temporary disability. Every aspect of your case will be thoroughly assessed in order to make the most accurate and comprehensive decision regarding your case, which is precisely why you need to be represented by a legal professional that can help make sure that your needs and rights are upheld at all times.
