Seeking Compensation After an Encino Construction Accident

If you're employed in California's construction sector, your employer is likely legally obligated to carry workers' compensation insurance. In the aftermath of an accident, you can claim compensation for economic losses, covering medical bills and lost wages during your recovery.

How an Encino Construction Accident Attorney Can Assist

Filing a workers' compensation claim doesn't always result in immediate compensation. Insurance companies may resist paying the full amount, using justifications such as:

  • The worker wasn't within their employment scope during the incident.
  • The worker was intoxicated.
  • The worker was engaged in horseplay or intentionally caused their injuries.
  • The worker was previously injured, therefore benefits are not the employer's responsibility.
  • The worker was an independent contractor and entitled to benefits.
  • The worker did not report the injury to a supervisor within a reasonable time.
  • The worker has recovered from the injury and is not entitled to future medical care or benefits.

Rather than dealing directly with insurance companies, which can lead to pitfalls, enlist the services of an attorney. The Law Offices of Kropach and Kropach, our Encino construction workplace accident lawyers, can assist you by:

  • Investigating to prove you were operating as an employee when injured.
  • Demonstrating that the accident wasn't a result of intoxication, horseplay, or self-inflicted harm.
  • Calculating your compensable losses and negotiating a fair settlement on your behalf.
  • Scheduling doctor evaluations to prove the nature and extent of your injuries.
  • Preparing evidence and arguments to support an award of benefits.
