Santa Clarita On The Job Injury Attorney

When you woke up this morning, did you think about heading to work and injuring yourself? We’d be remiss to think anyone does. Unfortunately, in California, someone injured themselves at work because of another’s negligence. Yes, even as you read this.

While the exact reasons workers get injured at work may vary with each case, one common thread binds all workplace injuries: an employer was negligent in their duty to provide sufficient safe working conditions. In fact, OSHA requires employers to maintain safe working habitats, although many smaller employers approach workplace safety unenthusiastically.

Hiring the Law Offices of Kropach & Kropach adds experience, integrity, and knowledge of workplace law to your claim. Our on the job injuries attorney, a workers compensation specialist, strategically litigates for workers injured at work by no fault of their own.

Filing a Claim? Some Things You Should Know.

From construction work accidents to factory-related slips and falls, our law firm has seen many cases of employer negligence in 40 years of practice. California is a state where you cannot rightfully sue your employer, therefore you must instead follow Workers Compensation guidelines. In filing your case, certain deadlines must be adhered to, and certain elements of proof must be included in your claim. Delays in processing have occurred when injured workers attempted to file without legal representation simply because they’d forgotten one single document.

Benefits may be available if your injuries caused:

  • Hearing issues, including the ringing of the ears or loss of hearing altogether.
  • Nerve-related disorders, including fibromyalgia and RSD, or Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy.
  • Limb breakages, including spinal cord which may lead to paralysis.
  • Head trauma, including vision loss, swelling of the brain, or massive migraines.
  • Breathing disorders, such as asthma, mesothelioma or other lung diseases.
  • Death, which benefits would be claimed by your surviving spouse, loved ones or children.

Santa Clarita on the job injuries attorney guidance may be necessary to speed up filing a claim. The state gives claimants a narrow window to file, appeal and refile if necessary.

We Fight Until You Win, Or You Don’t Pay

Along with workers compensation, we may be able to hold responsible third parties accountable by bringing suit to them in California court. Doing so may provide injured person benefits not offered in weekly workers compensation payments.

California law provides workers up to two-thirds of their regular salary each week, with $1103.29 being the ceiling. While this may seem like a great deal of money, for some California households, it’s barely enough to get by, and the statutory maximum means you’ll need to gross almost $1,800 a week to receive it.

The Law Offices of Kropach & Kropach are there for you when employers fail in their duty to protect you. We take cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning we do not collect money upfront and do not get paid until your workers compensation claim is successfully paid out.
