Visalia Workers’ Comp Attorneys
Under California law, any person who is injured in the course of performing his or her job responsibilities is entitled to seek workers’ compensation benefits for time away from work, medical care and other considerations. Rather than fulfill their obligations to injured workers, however, employers and their insurance companies often choose to fight the claim in order to protect their own business interests.
Many employees are not aware of their rights in workplace accident cases, and most employers are content to keep them in the dark. If you have suffered any type of injury while you were working, be sure that you have a reputable attorney with experience handling workers’ compensation claims and the ability to see that your rights are respected.

Skillful Representation for Victims of Valley Fever
Many farm laborers and others who work in the agricultural industry can be highly susceptible to Valley Fever. Valley Fever is a lung infection caused by inhaling a fungus that is common in area farm fields. Valley Fever can become quite debilitating and may greatly impact a victims’ quality of life. Our Visalia workers’ comp lawyers can help you seek coverage for medical treatment and time away from work if you contracted Valley Fever as a result of your job.
Fighting Discrimination Against Those Who File for Workers’ Compensation
Employers can become extremely hostile when an employee files a workers’ compensation claim. In some cases, employees are even discriminated against simply for pursuing their rights under the law. If you are treated differently after filing a claim, such as changes to your job responsibilities, a reduction in pay, being excluded from meetings or generally being treated in a hostile manner, you may have grounds for a discrimination claim.
