- We are the experts in workers’ compensation claims
Lawyers can practice different types of law but we focus on workers’ compensation claims and suits. What is workers’ compensation? It is the insurance that employers take out to cover their employees and business in case of an onsite work injury. This compensation pays for employees medical bills and lost wages when an injury occurs. This insurance is part of the employers requirements for having a business. This is not insurance that is paid by employees and in the state of California every business that has at least 1 employee must retain workers comp insurance.
We can help you file your claim according to your injuries to ensure you are getting the maximum benefits owed to you. The DWC-1 is the claim form that needs to be filed by the employer. We will fill it out and make sure it gets where it needs to be after your employer files it with the insurance company.

Even if you filed a claim on your own but you had your claim denied, don’t just stop trying to recoup your benefits. Call us and let’s figure out what needs to happen. California has a no fault rule when it comes to on the job injuries. Your employer must agree that the injury happened in order for the claim to go through.
