Do I Have a Workers’ Compensation Case?
When clients have questions about whether they have a claim, our Visalia workers’ compensation lawyers regularly employ the following general criteria:
- The injury happened in the course of fulfilling your job responsibilities
- The injury resulted in a loss of time from work
- The injury will require ongoing medical treatment
Whether the injury came on quickly as the result of a single work-related accident or a condition that progressed over time, if it can be tied directly to the performance of your job, you likely have a claim for workers’ compensation benefits. If any portion of your claim has been denied, we can help you take the steps to challenge it and do everything in our power to secure your benefits on appeal.
When Should I Call a Worker’s Compensation Lawyer?
If you have been injured, it can be difficult to know whether you should pursue legal action. The attorneys at our firm typically look at the following issues when advising our clients in these matters:
- Whether the accident resulted in injuries that required medical care
- Whether the victim lost considerable time from work
- The likely recovery time and future medical care that would be required
- The impact on the victim’s long-term quality of life
- The extent of property damage resulting from the accident
We are happy to review your case and explain your legal options. If we are not able to accept your case, we will work with you to find an attorney who can.
