After a work injury, does the doctor you see make a difference in the treatment you receive? What are you supposed to do while you cannot work? When are workers’ compensation benefits available? How much will they cover?
At Glauber Berenson Vego, we frequently hear these questions from injured workers across the Glendale/Pasadena area. We have made it our mission to ensure you understand the workers’ compensation process. Our attorneys will help you navigate the laws. We will make sure you receive all available benefits under the law to aid your recovery.
Advocating For Your Immediate And Long-Term Needs
You can obtain treatment from a list of doctors selected by your employer’s insurance company. Who you select matters. Some physicians may push to get you back to work before you are ready. This can result in subsequent injuries and a longer recovery process. We can guide you to the best available doctor based on your injury or suggest a referral to a specialist when needed.
While you are not able to work, you need to follow through with recommended treatments, such as physical and occupational therapy. You also need to keep your doctor informed of what you can and cannot do.
Workers’ compensation claims generally include temporary disability to provide financial stability while you are unable to work. How much you receive varies based on your situation. We can answer your specific benefit questions after reviewing your unique circumstances.
