Workers’ Compensation Attorney in Dana Point Orange County California
Professional Assistance Filing Workers’ Comp Claims
Under the California Workers’ Compensation Act, all employers are required to assist with an employee’s recovery after suffering an injury on the job. Unfortunately, insurance companies have gone above and beyond to insist that a vast majority of these claims are fraudulent. This is simply not true and is an unscrupulous marketing tactic used to diminish public opinion of workers’ compensation.
The California state Department of Insurance has consistently reported that the annual number of fraudulent cases account for less than one percent of all workers’ comp claims in a year. Nonetheless, workers filing these claims are placed under tremendous scrutiny, and often denied their rightful benefits.
Rosen Law Offices’ knowledgeable Dana Point workers’ compensation lawyer not only helps clients fill out workers’ comp forms accurately but also puts pressure on the insurance company in the appeals process should a claim be denied.
