We help clients navigate the appeal process

A previous post on this blog talked about a San Diego, California worker's right to pursue an administrative or even judicial appeal after her workers' compensation claim gets wrongfully denied or mishandled in some way.

However, even if it is not a good decision, appealing any decision of an employer or insurance company is not just a matter of writing a letter or speaking informally with an official. There are a lot of procedural hoops and deadlines that one has to meet in order even to have an opportunity to initiate or continue an appeal.

Moreover, the worker will still have to make her case in an appeal, as the employer or insurance company will not always back down even after an employee shows she is going to be persistent about getting the right result in her case.

At our law office, we help our clients work through California's workers' compensation system, a system, which, unfortunately, has become more prone to litigation as the years have gone by. We have in the past successfully represented our clients in contested workers' compensation matters, usually by working hard to make sure that their injuries get assessed fairly and completely by an objective medical professional.

It is unfortunate that insurance companies and employers sometimes refuse to pay valid workers' compensation claims or do not pay what is truly owed. However, the solution for California workers is not to just give up hope but to stand up for their rights, even if that may mean the best option is to appeal their case. We take pride in helping our clients insist that they get properly compensated for their work-related injuries.
