Securing Workers’ Compensation Benefits in California
An Experienced Workers’ Compensation Attorney Is Necessary, Especially for Claim Denial
Many injured workers never get the compensation, medical care and rehabilitation services they need. Often, they passively accept the initial medical evaluation performed by a doctor chosen by their employer’s insurance company.
Without an objective evaluation, you may be denying yourself the care and treatment you need to recover to the greatest extent possible, and you will not obtain the financial compensation you are entitled to.

Why Hire a Workers’ Compensation Attorney?
The workers’ compensation system was developed to provide an orderly means to compensate workers who have been injured on the job. In many ways, however, it has evolved into an adversarial system:
Your employer’s insurance company wants to limit the amount of compensation it pays and uses the system to do just that, which is not in your best interests when you have bills to pay, medical debt, reduced income and who knows what additional medical care necessary in the future.
Getting the compensation you need and deserve usually requires the help of an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer.
How Bender & Gritz Can Help You
As your advocate, our lawyers can help you in many ways, including:
- Navigating through the complex workers’ comp system to help you maximize the benefits you receive
- Obtaining an objective evaluation of your injury from a quality doctor and receiving the treatment you need to recover
- Fighting for you at all levels of the workers’ comp system, up to and including trial
- The attorneys at our firm have successfully handled hundreds of trials before the workers’ compensation board
Our goal is to help you obtain the compensation, treatment and rehabilitation you need to recover to the fullest extent possible. Beyond that, we do everything in our power to get you the best financial recovery possible.
Maximizing Compensation From All Sources of Recovery
If a workplace accident was caused by a third-party’s negligent actions, you may be able to obtain compensation above and beyond the workers’ compensation benefits.
In this situation, our law firm can file a workers’ comp claim and a personal injury claim against the third party who caused the work-related accident.
Cases involving these types of parallel claims are complex. A misstep on one side can limit your sources of recovery. Bender & Gritz has extensive experience handling workplace injury cases involving workers’ compensation and third-party personal injury claims. We know the complex interplay between these areas of the law.
Our firm is committed to helping you maximize your sources of recovery.
