Do you operate heavy machinery at work? Are you tasked with using specialized and complicated equipment to perform your duties? Have you suffered injuries through the course of using these devices? Are you having trouble getting the workers’ compensation benefits to which you are entitled under California state and federal laws? If so, the talented team of attorneys at Accident Recovery Legal Center have over 70 years’ combined experience and are here to help.
Regardless of the type of equipment you are tasked with using at work, you deserve to work in a safe and monitored environment. Unfortunately, accidents can occur in even in the most carefully planned spaces. The good news is that all California employers are required to cover adequate workers’ compensation insurance to pay for any resulting medical expenses and reimburse you for lost wages if you are unable to work while you recover.
It is not uncommon for employers to handle reports of injuries incorrectly, whether consciously as a cost-saving measure or because of oversight. When this happens, it can put you in a difficult situation. We can help you speak to your employer and urge them to file your claim with their insurance provider and move the process forward. If that fails to sway them, we can file an official complaint and take it as far as necessary to ensure you get the benefits to which you are entitled.
