Dedicated Workers’ Compensation Attorney in Sacramento
Employers are responsible for providing their employees with a safe working environment. However, accidents are inevitable, and some jobs put you at a higher risk. Law enforcers, firefighters, construction workers, and even chefs and line cooks can get injured in the line of duty. Slipping and falling, faulty equipment, lenient safety regulations, and careless fellow workers are just some of the common causes of workplace accidents.
By providing you with the legal services of a workers’ compensation attorney in Sacramento, CA we can make sure you are aware of your rights, as well as the compensation claims you are entitled to, if you ever get injured while on the job.
Insurance companies do not see a lot of incentive from acting in your favor. Whether or not your claim will be granted depends on how these companies interpret the compensation laws of the state. This means that you may not receive all the benefits that you are legally entitled to, but our Sacramento workers’ compensation attorneys are committed to doing everything possible to prevent that.
Common Workplace Injuries
Our workers’ compensation lawyers understand that serious work injuries can be very expensive, and, depending on severity, can take months to rehabilitate. The most serious ones include back and head injuries, broken bones, dismemberment, cuts and lacerations, severed nerves, spinal cord injuries, burns, dislocated bones, torn ligaments, and loss of hearing or sight.
If you sustain any of these, a workers’ compensation attorney from CWC can meet with you to discuss the extent of your injuries, as well as how the claims adjuster may approach your claim.
Types of Benefits
Let our workers compensation attorneys help protect your rights. Together, we can work toward possible compensation and benefits that include:
- Medical benefits
- Temporary or permanent disability benefits
- Supplemental job displacement benefits
- Vocational rehabilitation
- Death benefits (for those who have lost a family member in a work accident)
These are most often paid through a settlement agreed upon by both parties outside of court, and approved by a judge. Depending on the type of settlement, you may receive a lump sum that releases your right to future benefits, or receive benefits for a certain time, until an agreed upon termination date.
