Workplace injuries happen in a wide variety of ways, from falls off of ladders to equipment mishaps to falling objects to people attempting to lift too much weight. Other common on-the-job injuries don't actually happen in the workplace, but they do happen in the course of a person's job, such as a package delivery person being involved in a motor vehicle accident.
In still other cases, there is no sudden injury that can be pointed to, but rather a cumulative effect from repeating certain motions over and over and over, resulting in a repetitive motion injury. No matter what the cause of your work-related injury or illness, the Rancho Mirage office of English Lloyd & Armenta is ready to help you fight for full and fair workers' compensation benefits.
We recently posted a blog about some of the elements of the fight for workers' comp benefits, noting how frustrating it can be for an employee who has served their employer long and well, only to find out that their workers' comp claim has been rejected. That's where the fight for benefits begins.
For an injured worker who retains an experienced attorney, the fight is sometimes over almost immediately. The employer and insurer recognize the name of the law firm and quickly concede that they are indeed obligated to provide coverage. In many other circumstances, however, the employer and insurer are determined to deny benefits.
This can be especially true when it appears from the severity of an injury that the benefits (payment of a portion of lost wages and medical care coverage) could be for an extended period of time.
We investigate your claim, gathering needed evidence from medical experts and witnesses, employer documents, medical records and much more.
Our investigation will help you make informed decisions about your legal options, but also inform the workers' compensation administrative law judge about the real facts of your case. To learn more about our Coachella Valley law firm, please look at our workers' compensation page.
