WE ARE UNIQUE IN A HIGH VOLUME INDUSTRY
We pride ourselves on close client relationships. Our work comp approach is different from other lawyers in that we care about our clients and take the time to speak with clients personally. Far too many injured employees have no contact with their attorney, and many times have never even met their lawyer. It is sometimes impossible to get a lawyer on the phone. At Beach Cities Legal Center you will always speak to an experienced workers compensation attorney.
YOUR HEALTH CARE IS IMPORTANT
Your health is more important than anything. There is nothing worse than an injury that prevents you from earning a living, and prevents you from enjoying life. Many people become depressed after an injury and experiencing a decline in the quality of life. We will put you on the path to recovery, see that you get all treatment necessary, including psychological counseling, as well as ensuring you are compensated for the damage to your body.
BAD THINGS CAN HAPPEN TO GOOD WORKERS
A work injury can happen to the most careful and dedicated worker. Many injuries caused at work may not at first be noticed, but pain may happen days following an accident. However, it is important to note that it is not necessary to find an "at-fault" party. If you are hurting becomes of demanding work you may have cumulative injuries. Many times people develop injuries over the course of time, working in repetitive jobs.
When there is no blunt trauma, or specific moment of injury, insurance companies usually deny a claim. Or, they may say that it happened on a specific occasion, and therefore your medical history is not appropriately documented which negatively affects the claim. It is important to ensure everything is set up correctly so you do not have to dig out of an administrative hole in the future.
CALCULATING YOUR AWARD IS IMPORTANT
Monetary awards are paid by the workers' comp insurance company, not your employer. Money is available to an injured workers because of an inability, or reduced ability, to compete in the labor force. The system of providing bodily impairment is controlled by the insurance company and it is crucial that you have the experience and knowledge regarding the process of acquiring the appropriate reports (which is evidence) and then to be able to bring the reports and argue before the judge. The impairment must first be rated according to the appropriate rating schedule, which is different for each worker depending on their age, job and injury. If you don't have an attorney to build your case, or you are signing an agreement without a skilled workers' compensation certified specialist you are at an extreme disadvantage.
INSURERS WILL TRY TO DENY OR REDUCE WORK COMP BENEFITS
Claiming your workers comp benefits is never easy. Employers may ignore your request for treatment. If they do send you for treatment and hand it over to the insurance company an experienced "claims adjuster" is assigned to your case. That adjuster's job is to limit the amount of money the insurance company has to spend on you. They will usually send you to a doctor they have a strong relationship with, a doctor who receives a steady stream of work coming from the insurance company, and therefore has every incentive to keep the insurance company happy at the expense of your health and finances. You do not have to simply see "their" doctor. Insurance companies will want to send you to US Healthworks, Concentra, or any other large industrial clinic.
HOW MUCH DOES A LAWYER COST
Many people don't get a lawyer because they think a lawyer is too expensive. Unlike civil attorneys that take up to 40% of an award, we are paid 15% of settlement, paid by the insurance company, and only if we win. Given the complexities of workers' compensation laws, we have always been able to increase the award by more than the 15% we take for representing. Many times the increased award under our representation goes up substantially.
