Getting the Workers' Comp Benefits You Need

At the Law Offices of Bryan K. Leiser, we practice exclusively in the area of workers' compensation. We are dedicated to protecting our clients' rights and helping them obtain the compensation they need and deserve. Our reputation is built on hard work and honesty. We have more 35 years combined experience and a strong understanding of the cases we handle. We provide legal counsel in cases of paralysis as a result of a workplace accident.

If you have suffered an injury causing paralysis, you already know that this is a life-changing situation.

  • You may have to relearn how to perform simple, daily tasks.
  • Your medical treatment is extensive.
  • Modifications may be required in order for you to operate your vehicle or access your home. Special accommodations could be needed in your workplace, or you may need to find an entirely new occupation.

If you have sustained such an injury on the job, do not face this challenge alone. You need professional legal representation to help you obtain the maximum benefits you are entitled to under California workers' compensation laws.

What workers' comp benefits can I claim?

Workers injured on the job are generally entitled to seek workers' comp benefits, regardless of who was at fault for the accident. The 4 basic types of benefits are:

  • medical benefits
  • disability benefits
  • supplemental job displacement benefits
  • death benefits.

Workers' comp pays for 100% of medical costs for injured workers, until maximum medical improvement (MMI) is reached. This is the level at which your physician determines that no further improvement is expected, even with continued medical treatment.

At that point, in the case of permanent disability, your physician will assign you a disability rating. That number, along with other factors, will be used to determine the permanent disability benefits you may be entitled to receive. The insurance company might try to reduce the amount of your workers' compensation settlement. You need an experienced Fresno paralysis attorney to negotiate on your behalf and fight for your rights.
