Do You Need A San Fernando Valley Work-Related Disability Claim Attorney?
There are many excellent reasons to contact our law firm before or immediately after filing your California workers’ compensation claim. These include:
- Unfortunately, wrongful claim denials that require appeals are common. Insurers deny claims for a wide range of reasons that are not well-understood by injured workers. Attorney Peter M. Hsiao will provide guidance if your claim is improperly denied.
- Many injured employees encounter serious problems even after they begin receiving benefits — such as denials of needed medical treatment or being told to return to work before they are physically able. Let our office assist you in protecting your rights.
- Workers’ compensation is a complex and ever-evolving area of law. If you do not have an attorney to guide you through the system and protect your rights, you will be going up against the insurance company all by yourself.
