  • Avatar Sara Angeles ★★★★★ a month ago
    With my previous worker's compensation attorney, I felt as like I was in a limbo because I was seeing the same physicians and receiving the same findings. I wasn't getting any better, and resolution wasn't in the cards. I … More made the decision to reach out to The Morris Law Group by phone. Mr. Morris and his team immediately took up my case and started things moving. My health was improving, I was seeing new medical professionals, and my claim was finally resolved.
  • Avatar Flora Collins ★★★★★ a month ago
    I regret not getting in touch with The Morris Law Group sooner. I felt I could handle my own worker's compensation claim because I was in well over my head, but little did I know how difficult the procedure was. They were able to explain … More everything and managed my claim correctly once I hired them as my attorney.

When Should I Hire A Workers’ Compensation Lawyer?

Since most lawyers offer free consultations you should speak to a lawyer as soon as you suspect that you might have a workers compensation claim.

Since workers compensation attorneys work on a contingency and not by the hour it is in your best interest to hire a lawyer as soon as possible so that they can help guide you through the workers compensation process.

In the case of minor injuries a lawyer might advise that a lawyer will not be necessary. The best practice is to speak to a lawyer rather than leave it to chance.

How Long Does It Take To Get Workers’ Compensation?

If you are injured at work your employer is required to immediately refer you out for medical care. Your employer or its insurance company have 90 days to accept or deny your workers compensation claim. During the period that your employer is determining whether to accept or deny your claim they will pay for all medical treatment up to $10,000.

If your workers compensation doctor says you cannot work and your employer or its insurer have accepted your case you will start to receive temporary disability payments. The payments will start approximately two weeks after insurance was notified about your inability to work. Your check will be retroactive to when you started missing work. You will be paid two thirds your gross weekly wage. If the workers compensation insurance company denies your claim you will need to apply for state disability. It can take up to 30 days for state disability payments to start.

Regarding settlement of your case. That will depend on the severity of your injury and the course of your medical treatment.

How Do I Choose A Workers' Compensation Lawyer?

There is a growing number of injured workers relying on the internet to find workers' compensation lawyers over the past few years, but how do you make a decision among all of the attorneys available on the internet? 

When it comes to choosing a workers compensation attorney, the following are some of the most important factors to consider:

  • Having a lawyer who is a member of professional organizations, such as the California Applicants Attorney Association and Million Dollar Advocates, shows you the lawyer has the ability to win your case.
  • On the website, the law firm has articles, blog posts, presentations, or other information about workers' compensation law.
  • Testimonials from former clients who have received workers' compensation settlements.

Is Workers' Compensation The Only Thing I Can Get?

If your case has been denied you can still receive state disability payments from EDD. In order to receive these payments you will need a note from a doctor certifying our disability. In some cases you may have already been paying into short term disability insurance.

If your injury was caused by a third party ( i.e. you were hit by a car while you were working)  you may be able to make a claim against the third party’s liability insurance and recover pain and suffering.

  • Will you be available to answer any questions I have about my workers' compensation case?
  • How will you handle my workers' compensation claim?
  • How much will it cost if I hire you to be my workers' compensation lawyer?
