Workers’ compensation is the broad term for injuries where any harm is suffered by an employee while they are within the scope of their employment. This encompasses injuries that are sustained on-the-job due to a specific occurrence or single event and injuries at work that progress over time due to workplace causes which includes repetitive physical stress, such as carpal tunnel syndrome or leg problems. In addition, workplace injuries include many work-related illnesses such as heart disease, stress, hypertension, trouble breathing or exposure to toxic vapors or chemicals.

California: Insurance Required

California is actually very pro-consumer and pro-employee and we are lucky in that way. California Workers’ Compensation Law requires all employers to carry Workers’ Compensation insurance for their full slate of employees (although owners can opt out of covering themselves) with different insurance rates based on the type of work they do. If they are financially able to prove it, they can also apply and qualify for self-insurance to cover their work-related injuries costs. Either way, coverage under the Workers’ Compensation insurance or self-insurance will provide for injured employees:

  • Compensation for permanent injuries or disabilities that are work related;
  • Reimbursements for medical expenses; and
  • Disability payments for during the recovery process from work injuries.

Trust DiMarco | Araujo | Montevideo

We have an ethical record that has been laid on over three decades of experience, proper customer service and success. Our passion is to help people especially those who have been injured due to no fault of their own. We believe in protecting employees and consumers and we believe those who are at fault should compensate injured people.

Even though all employers have insurance, difficulties arise due to two reasons: The complexity of injuries and the employer’s insurance companies. Determining if you are eligible and the value of your claim is complex. Your employer’s workers’ comp insurance company’s hope is to limit the compensation it pays out for injured workers. They utilize the complexity of the workers’ compensation system and the nuances of medical histories and injuries to do this.

These issues are used as a smoke screen but we are very accustomed to dealing with them. Due to this, receiving the fair and full compensation you rightfully deserve usually requires the professional help of experienced Los Angeles workers compensation lawyers. Our ongoing job is to stay well informed and up to date in the law, know how the insurance companies operate and fight on your behalf.

Maximize: Your Compensation

The Los Angeles California Workers’ Comp attorneys at DiMarco | Araujo | Montevideo promise to do their best to help you maximize the compensation that is rightfully yours. We know the law and will investigate your full case, your medical files and the evidence to make sure we cover your claim correctly. That includes looking for any other responsible parties in addition to that of your employer. When workplace injuries have been caused by the negligence of a third party, you may be able to obtain compensation above and beyond that which is provided by the California workers compensation laws.

Filing Two Claims for One Injury

When we find injury cases where it would be to your advantage to simultaneously conduct both a California workers’ compensation claim and a civil Third Party work injury claim, we will move forward with both claims carefully as they are legally delicate. This is because they are parallel and entangled where any misstep in either claims may cause your options for compensation under both claims to become limited or reduced. Los Angeles California Workers’ Compensation lawyers at DiMarco | Araujo | Montevideo have been handling these dual workers’ compensation and civil work injury claims since the late 1970s.
