On-The-Job Injuries Caused By Heavy Equipment
An injury caused by a machine tool, packaging equipment or another piece of heavy equipment is sudden and traumatic. The victim may become incapacitated either for a period of time or permanently. Even if the injured person can return to work, he or she may be able to work only at a reduced capacity.
For your free consultation to discuss your heavy equipment injury, call the experienced workers’ compensation attorneys at Berger & Michelena: 800-488-4813.
As a factory or construction worker who has been injured while on the job, you are entitled to claim workers’ compensation benefits. However, workers’ compensation insurance companies in California are notorious for denying claims or prematurely terminating benefits. You may need help from an experienced workers’ compensation law firm in order to get the medical care and disability benefits you deserve.
Advocates For Factory And Construction Workers
Berger & Michelena has represented thousands of injured workers, helping them obtain medical care and benefits to cover wage losses. We have extensive experience in cases involving injuries that typically occur in industrial environments and construction sites such as back injuries, broken bones and fractures, injuries to hands, arms and shoulders, amputations, and other serious injuries. Our lawyers place a priority on helping our clients get all of the workers’ compensation benefits they are entitled to receive, including quality medical care.
Berger & Michelena will take all steps necessary to help you get all of the workers’ compensation benefits you are entitled to receive.
Bridging The Gap Between The Accident And The Approval Of Your Claim
The workers’ compensation insurance company has 90 days to act on your claim. During that time, you will not receive any workers’ compensation benefits. However, you may be eligible for California State Disability Benefits until the time your workers’ compensation claim is approved. Our law firm has helped many clients obtain state disability benefits pending the approval of their workers’ compensation claims, and we can advise and assist you.
