Obtaining Disability Benefits In California
After the filing of a workers’ compensation claim, the insurance company has 90 days to respond. During this time, the injured worker does not receive benefits. This places a severe burden on the employee and his or her family, who must cover their living expenses on a sharply reduced income.
Fortunately for injured workers, there is a solution to this problem. California state disability benefits can bridge the gap between the filing of a claim and that time when an injured worker begins to receive workers’ compensation benefits. Call us for more information: 213-624-9999.

Getting An Objective Medical Evaluation
A lawyer at our firm can explain the process and discuss the forms you must complete. One of the key tasks that you must accomplish is having your doctor certify that you are indeed injured and incapable of performing your work responsibilities.
If you do not have a doctor or if you have received a negative evaluation from a doctor at Concentra or another medical provider network, we can refer you to a physician who can provide you with an objective medical evaluation. By properly completing the application and providing proper documentation about your disability from a doctor, you should qualify for California disability benefits.
