You need tenacious and dedicated legal representation when you have suffered an injury or illness at work. Aegis Law can help your case in many ways:
We are proud of our 99% success rate and have obtained over $300 million in settlements and jury awards for our clients.
The most crucial step for any work injury case is to demonstrate that your injury or illness directly results from something that happened at work. You must report your situation to your supervisor, ideally in writing, within 30 days. It is critical that you seek medical care to establish a record of your treatment, and so the doctor can verify that your condition is a result of a job-related incident.
You have two main choices for financial relief: workers’ compensation insurance and a third-party lawsuit.
All employers in California must carry workers’ compensation insurance, even if they only have one employee. This coverage pays your medical bills, partial wages while you recover, and disability benefits. It can also provide death benefits for your family if you pass away from your condition.
Although the process in California is fairly easy, you overlook details leading to a denial or delay in your claim. Working with our worker’s compensation attorneys can reduce these risks and ensure you get the benefits you deserve.
In some instances, you could have been hurt by a contractor, vendor, or visitor to your worksite. For example, if the security company fails to keep your workplace safe, you may suffer an injury and need compensation. Cases like this are when you can seek relief through a third-party lawsuit.
You may be able to receive workers’ compensation while also suing the third party for financial relief, and our work injury lawyers can advise you if this applies to you. Regardless, we can help you hold those responsible for your work injury accountable for their actions.
No matter how you pursue financial relief after an on-the-job accident, you deserve superior legal guidance to secure the maximum compensation for your needs. Instead of adding to your stress by trying to figure out the insurance or legal systems, put your trust in the Sacramento work injury attorneys at Aegis Law.
