Tips for Workers' Compensation

Advice from an Oakland Workers' Comp Attorney

The last thing you want to worry about after suffering a serious physical injury is dealing with a confusing legal process. Filing a workers' comp claim can seem like an impossibly complex maze, especially when you are trying to recover from your painful injuries. Many injured workers benefit from the guidance and assistance of a knowledgeable Oakland workers' comp lawyer during this time for help with recovering the compensation they need in a quick and efficient manner.

The Law Offices of Jonathan M. Brand has a proven record of success with helping injured victims obtain workers' compensation for workplace injuries.

The lawyers at the firm have provided this helpful list of tips for you to follow after you have experienced a work-related injury or illness.

  • Give Your Employer Prompt Notice - This involves telling your employer about your injury right away, regardless of how large or small your injuries may seem at the time.
  • Fill Out the Workers' Compensation Form - Give it back to your employer, keep a copy for yourself, and make sure that your employer actually files the workers' comp report with the insurance company. If you haven't heard from them in two weeks, call the insurer.
  • Move Quickly to File an Appeal if Your Claim is Denied - Filing an appeal requires you to make a list of everything that's in your workers' comp file, make copies of your medical records, ensure that your doctor filled out the medical forms properly, and make sure that your medical reports show how your injury is related to your job. A lawyer at the firm can help you take all of this information and seek an appeal for a denied workers' comp claim.
