Will the Stockton Workers' Compensation Attorneys help me file a claim?

After you have been injured on the job, you must report your injury to your employer as soon as possible. Once you have disclosed your injury, your employer is required to provide you a DWC1 form. You can also obtain the form on the Department of Workers' Compensation website. Reporting your injury to your employer and correctly completing the DWC1 form will also help you protect your workers' compensation rights. If you are having trouble filling out the DWC1 form, a Stockton workers' compensation attorney can help you. You must complete the DWC1 form as soon as possible to avoid having your claim delayed or denied.

Can the Stockton Workers' Compensation Attorneys help me get the benefits I deserve?

Our Stockton workers' compensation attorneys will help you obtain the benefits you deserve, including medical care, temporary disability benefits, permanent disability benefits, supplemental disability benefits, or death benefits. Our first step will be to get the insurance carrier to admit that your claim is work-related and provide those benefits to you. If they deny that your claim is work-related or deny benefits, we will take actions under the labor code and before a workers' compensation judge to see that you receive the benefits you deserve.

How will the Stockton Workers' Compensation Attorneys help me through the medical treatment process?

Workers' compensation insurance carriers will use obstacles to avoid providing an injured employee with the medical treatment they deserve. The Stockton workers' compensation attorneys are very familiar with these tactics and have a proven track record of fighting those strategies for our clients. Sometimes, the solution can be as simple as working with your treating physician to fill out the paperwork correctly in order to get your medical treatment. Other times, a utilization review, independent medical review, and or getting the workers' compensation judge involved are required to get the necessary medical treatment. 

Can the Stockton Workers' Compensation Attorneys help me choose the right doctor from my employer's insurance company's medical provider network?

The majority of workers' compensation insurance carriers require injured employees to see a physician in their Medical Provider Network. A Medical Provider Network is a group of physicians approved to treat work-related injuries by an employer's workers' compensation insurance company. Choosing the right doctor in the workers' compensation system can be critical to your case's success. It is essential to find a balance of a doctor who is willing to fill out the paperwork correctly so that your treatments get approved and find a competent doctor capable of giving you quality medical care. Too often, people choose a doctor who is good at one or the other but not both, and the Stockton workers' compensation attorneys can help guide you in finding a doctor who can do both.  

Will the Stockton Workers' Compensation Attorneys explain how the medical treatment utilization schedule affects my case?

Employees injured at work are entitled to receive appropriate medical care under the Medical Treatment Utilization Schedule, also known as medical treatment guidelines. Medical treatment guidelines are rules for determining what reasonable and necessary medical care based on evidence-based medicine is. Primary treating physicians use the medical treatment utilization schedule as a guide for providing conservative care. While conservative care is often successful, sometimes more aggressive care is necessary and needs to be requested. The Stockton workers' compensation attorneys work with the primary treating physicians to request additional medical treatment when needed. 

Can the Stockton Workers' Compensation Attorney tell me why the insurance company denied my treatment after a utilization review?

Employers and their workers' compensation insurance carriers will often require an injured employee to go through a utilization review to decide if medical treatment the employee is requesting is needed. Oftentimes, employers will request utilization reviews to deny necessary treatment. The utilization review process continually increases burdens on primary treating physicians to be overly meticulous when ordering treatment. Utilization review doctors will use any mistake or failure to check everything on their list as a reason to deny treatment. Sometimes the solution is as easy as going back to the treating physician and checking the appropriate box. The Stockton workers' compensation attorneys try to work with the doctors to make sure that they are accurately requesting what the utilization review doctor is requiring. 

Can the Stockton Workers' Compensation Attorneys tell me if my claim is eligible for an Independent Medical Review?

If an injured employee was denied treatment after a utilization review, you and your Stockton workers' compensation attorney could request an Independent Medical Review. An independent medical professional will review medical records and other documentation surrounding your injury and determine if the medical treatment requested is necessary. The Stockton workers' compensation attorneys can help determine if you are eligible to request an Independent Medical Review and aid you in filing the petition for an Independent Medical Review. 

What are the most common workers' compensation injuries that the Stockton Workers' Compensation Attorneys see?

The professional attorneys at Stockton workers' compensation attorneys have seen all types of workers' compensation injuries over the last 25 years. Our Stockton workers' compensation attorneys see the most common injuries to our client's back, shoulder, head, neck, knee, foot, ankle, or elbow. Our knowledgeable attorneys can help you determine if your injury was work-related, especially if it resulted from repeated trauma or due to an occupational injury. We also have extensive experience representing families who had loved ones die due to a work-related injury and can help them through a wrongful death claim.   

What are the top causes of work-related injuries that the Stockton Workers' Compensation Attorneys see?

The Stockton workers' compensation attorneys are well aware of the countless causes of workers' compensation accidents. Certain professions often lend themselves to higher injury rates, so it is crucial to have a workers' compensation attorney that you trust. The most common are construction accidents, industrial accidents, warehouse accidents, and trucking accidents. We also have clients who worked as firefighters and police officers who suffered catastrophic injuries. 

Can the Stockton Workers' Compensation Attorneys help me finalize my workers' compensation case?

We often see employees unknowingly accepting lowball offers to settle their cases. Our attorneys will negotiate with the insurance company on behalf of our clients as well as represent our clients at all depositions, hearings, and trials. While most workers' compensation cases do not go to trial, our attorneys are not afraid to take the case to trial if we think the insurance company is not offering what is in our clients' best interest.
