San Bernardino County Workers’ Compensation Lawyers Fight for You
Accomplished Upland lawyers help people injured on the job recover wages
Accidents or illnesses suffered on the job can have devastating consequences to both victims and their families. The workers’ compensation lawyers at the Law Offices of Marc Grossman know how to negotiate and litigate these claims so that victims can get the reimbursement they deserve. Our caring attorneys have served clients in the San Bernardino County area for 18 years. We handle the legal process and confront insurers who try to force you into a poor settlement. Likewise, employers are not allowed by law to punish you for filing a workers’ compensation claim, and we won’t let them get away with it. For any work-related condition, we will protect your rights.
Counselors pursuing medical costs and lost wages during rehabilitation
No matter what type of work-related condition you have, our lawyers are focused on helping you obtain any benefits you are able to receive, including:
- Medical costs — Reasonable medical costs for a work-related injury are covered by workers’ compensation insurance. California has revised its rules to require evidence-based medical advice to guide treatment.
- Temporary partial disability — Injured workers who are given reduced work hours or alternate jobs during their rehabilitation can apply for temporary partial disability, which usually is two-thirds of the wage reduction up to the legally set limit.
- Temporary total disability — If you are unable to work at all for at least three days or are admitted to the hospital overnight, you are eligible to receive temporary total disability benefits. This is usually two-thirds of a weekly wage, with a weekly maximum of $1,128.43 for injuries occurring after January 1, 2016.
We understand the financial pressure you face, so the Law Offices of Marc Grossman negotiates aggressively for a prompt settlement that fully covers your needs.
Dedicated assistance for workers’ compensation appeals
Even when you cannot settle your claim and disagree with the decision of your local Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board (WCAB), you still have options. The Law Offices of Marc Grossman can help you pursue a fair result by filing a Petition for Reconsideration if the decision was not supported by evidence or if new information has arisen. Your matter is then referred to the state WCAB in San Francisco. After the WCAB appeal, there is a chance to win at the Court of Appeal or the Supreme Court of California.
Seeking funds to protect workers and families in cases of permanent disability
Some work injuries and illnesses never heal completely. The attorneys at the Law Offices of Marc Grossman understand that a partial or total permanent disability decision can benefit your family for decades to come. We will develop a full overview of your anticipated medical costs and the limitations on your ability to earn a living. From there, we will advocate fiercely to ensure fair compensation for the years after maximum medical improvement has been reached.
Helping dependents recover after a job-related death
California law entitles dependents to receive compensation if someone dies from a work-related injury or illness. This now includes funeral and burial expenses up to $10,000. During this difficult time, our lawyers can help you collect this compensation as well as the death benefit available to spouses, children and other dependents.
