Were you injured in a work accident? You need to notify your employer right away and seek treatment quickly. Your employer will tell you if you need to get treatment within their medical provider care network. The doctor you choose can make a big difference in your recovery! For instance, certain clinics may push for you to return to work before you have healed.
A workers’ compensation attorney can help you obtain appropriate medical treatment. If you are receiving treatment, but don’t feel the care offered is fully addressing your injury, it might be time to change doctors. We can help guide you to a doctor that will provide appropriate treatment, even if your employer has their own medical provider network.
For more than three decades, the attorneys at Glauber Berenson Vego have been helping injured workers with accessing treatment in Glendale. We understand how a work injury can affect every aspect of your life.
Proving an injury occurred at work can be difficult, especially if you do not tell your employer about the injury right away. An insurance adjuster will often complete an investigation and speak with possible witnesses and coworkers. For example, you may have told a coworker you hurt your back at soccer practice. If the injury happened at work but got worse while at soccer practice, this offhand comment could hurt your claim.
You will learn how the workers’ compensation claims process works at your first appointment. We believe in education and have prepared informational materials that will help you understand the process. You will be assigned a team of experienced professionals, including a case coordinator and attorney who will advocate for all benefits available under the law.
