Can I Change Doctors?
The insurance companies will send injured workers to doctors that provide favorable opinions for the insurance company. Unfortunately that usually results in slower care, reduced care, less benefits, and many times it means no benefits at all. However, an injured worker does not have to stay with the company doctor, workers have the right to select doctors.
It is important to see a doctor that is not working for the insurance company and against the worker. Insurance companies keep contracts with industrial clinics like Kaiser On The Job, Concentra, Immediate Medical and Proactive Care, and those doctors are under pressure from insurance companies so moving doctors is important.
We will help you find a doctor that cares about you more than keeping the insurance company happy, which is not only crucial to receive the best treatment, but also to obtain the records and evidence needed to get the most benefits.
Employer won't send you for the treatment you need?
What if the employer won't even provide a doctor? You have the right to see a doctor, if the employer isn't providing treatment as required we can help find the insurance company and a doctor that won't charge the inured worker for treatment.
Insurance company won't authorize treatment?
It is common for insurance companies to ignore or deny a doctor's request for authorization to provide patients with treatment, medication or diagnostic studies. If this happens to you then you need to be able to file in Court to get a judge to Order the insurance company to provide the treatment. If this has happened to you, see our page titled Work Comp Laws regarding the utilization review process and how to appeal to the Independent Medical Review when the insurance company denies treatment etc.
Employer requires you to use sick time to rest after an injury?
You must be provided with time off work if you are hurt and cannot work. Your employer cannot make you use your sick or vacation time to recover from a work injury. We will make sure you get proper time off to recover from work injuries.
Insurance companies want to save money. They do that by denying medical treatment and payments to those who need help. We will get you the medical care you need from workers compensation insurance and the money meant to compensate injured workers.
Insurance company denied your claim?
Insurance companies deny claims to prevent paying for your doctor bills and paying your wage while you are on disability. We will beat the denial and get the treatment you need. We will also get you money to replace your wages and compensate for your injuries.
Your Attorney Doesn't Call you back?

What Is Work Comp?
Your employer should have insurance and the insurance company is required to provide workers compensation (work comp) for injured workers. This includes medical treatment, and money, when an employee is injured at work. You should not pay a deductible every time you see a doctor, nor should you be required to pay for prescription medication for an injury sustained while you were working.
Your employer's work comp insurance covers all your costs.
An injured worker will receive the necessary therapy to recover and to return to work. Money is paid to an injured worker as Temporary Disability Benefits during the time the worker is unable to work. This is meant to replace lost wages during recovery.
Even after returning to work, there is more money for the injured worker as Permanent Disability benefits. This is what many people refer to as a workers compensation settlement. The calculation of Permanent Disability, which converts to money in work comp, is complicated.
Is a Workers' Compensation Attorney Necessary?
Perhaps you have suffered an injury at work and the insurance company has been paying you money in the form of Temporary Disability Benefits and set you up with a doctor. It may seem that you are being treated fairly but it is in the insurance companies interest to cut benefits where they can.
You may be under paid or have your medical treatment cut or denied because Workers' Compensation Insurance companies make money by cutting back on the medical treatment and cash paid to an injured worker. A common insurance tactic is to treat an injury and send an employee back to work without a lump sum payment for the injury sustained. An attorney will ensure they pay you what you are owed.
All On-The-Job Accidents and Injuries are covered.
Even if you are injured due to your own fault --- you are still covered! Beach Cities Legal Center will fight for your rights, and get you paid the most money. It doesn't matter if you were negligent while working. You still have the right to benefits. Many people have injuries from working repetitive jobs. You have the right to work comp benefits for work injuries even if you cannot point to a specific event that caused the injury.
What Does a Work Comp Lawyer Cost?
Workers Compensation Lawyers get paid from the final settlement. When the case settles the attorney gets 15% of a total settlement. It is important to have a Workers Compensation Lawyer to maximize your award and the difference between having a knowledgeable, experienced lawyer makes up for the small percentage taken. We increase settlements by way more than we take as a fee.
