Standing Up To Insurance Companies After A Work Injury

California employers are required to carry workers' compensation insurance and pay workers benefits when they are injured at work. Workers' compensation covers most work-related physical or mental injuries and illnesses, whether caused by a single event or repeated exposure.

In some cases, it is obvious that the employee was on the job at the time of the injury. In other cases, it is unclear. Insurance companies fight many workers' compensation claims by contending that the injury was not work-related. We fight back.

At the Law Office of Ronald M. Stein Attorney at Law in Stockton, California, we help injured workers stand up to insurance companies and obtain the benefits they deserve.

Evaluating Your Workplace Injury

We handle every evaluation on a case-by-case basis, taking into consideration more than just your direct injury. We will evaluate the progressive nature of your injury and how it affects every part of your body.

Here is a partial list of the injuries we cover:

  • Carpal tunnel
  • Shoulder, neck, back and spine injuries
  • High blood pressure
  • Lower extremities
  • Repetitive stress
  • Amputations
  • Crush injuries
  • Machine injuries

We are familiar with all types of work injury cases. Some injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, develop gradually over several years as the result of cumulative wear and tear. In other cases, the damage may be psychological rather than physical. In both instances, you should report your injury immediately upon learning that it could be work-related in order to decrease the likelihood of a dispute over coverage.

Upon reporting your injury, you may have been sent to a doctor who is looking out for the interests of your employer more than yours. We make sure you are examined and treated by a doctor who has your best interests in mind.

Our goal is to help you recuperate fully and go back to work. Until you are able to do so, however, we work tirelessly to protect your rights and recover the benefits you are entitled to under California law.
