Helping Injured Locals – It’s All We Do

At Alvandi Law Group, our sole focus is on representing the best interests of injured clients, such as workers who have suffered injuries on the job.

Our commitment lies entirely in advocating for injured workers and fighting for the justice and compensation they deserve.

Our familiarity with major employers in the region allows us to effectively navigate the unique challenges that may arise in each specific industry.

Different Types of Workplace Injuries

Workplace injuries can vary greatly in nature and severity. Our team works closely with medical experts to fully comprehend the extent of your injury and its potential impact on your future well-being. Such collaboration allows us to build a strong case that accurately reflects your needs, so the opposing insurance company sees that we’re serious about getting you full benefits or a fair settlement.

Some common types of workplace injuries involved in workers' compensation claims include:

  • Fall injuries: These can occur from slips, trips, or falls from heights, resulting in fractures, sprains, or even traumatic brain injuries.
  • Burn injuries: Workers can suffer burns from various sources, such as chemicals, hot surfaces, or electrical equipment, leading to painful and long-lasting injuries.
  • Motor vehicle accident-related injuries: Employees who drive as part of their job duties may be involved in motor vehicle accidents, which can result in severe injuries, including spinal cord damage and whiplash.
  • Repetitive stress injuries: Prolonged repetitive motions can cause injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome or arthritis, which can significantly impact a worker's ability to perform their job.
  • Occupational illnesses: Workers may develop illnesses due to exposure to hazardous substances, such as asbestos-related diseases, chemical poisoning, or respiratory disorders.

Workers’ Compensation Benefits

Workers' compensation benefits are designed to provide support and relief to injured workers, allowing them to recover and eventually return to work. By ensuring that employees receive the necessary care and assistance following a workplace injury, these benefits not only help workers but also benefit employers by promoting a safer and more productive work environment. Despite the two-sided benefits of workers’ compensation, some employers still resist any sort of workplace injury claim, which can make hiring a workers’ comp lawyer a necessity.

Some of the key workers' compensation benefits available through a claim include:

  • Medical treatment coverage: This benefit covers all reasonable and necessary medical expenses related to the workplace injury, including doctor visits, diagnostic tests, surgeries, medications, and physical therapy. There should be no cap on this coverage.
  • Disability pay: Workers may be eligible for temporary or permanent disability benefits depending on the severity and duration of their injury. Temporary disability benefits partially replace lost wages while a worker is recovering, whereas permanent disability benefits compensate for any lasting impairment that affects the worker's ability to earn a living.
  • Vocational rehabilitation: If an injured worker is unable to return to their previous job due to their injury, they may be provided vocational rehabilitation services. These services can include job retraining, counseling, and job placement assistance to help the worker transition into a new line of work.

Do Independent Contractors Get Workers’ Comp?

In most cases, independent contractors are not eligible for workers' compensation coverage as they are not considered employees under California law. Workers' compensation benefits are typically reserved for employees who have an employer-employee relationship. However, misclassification of a worker's status by an employer might result in an independent contractor being entitled to workers' compensation benefits because they should have been classified as an employee all along. It is always advisable to consult with a knowledgeable Bakersfield workers' compensation attorney from Alvandi Law Group to determine your rights and eligibility based on your specific situation.

When Should You Tell Your Employer About an Injury?

In California, it is crucial to report a workplace injury to your employer as soon as possible, and no later than 30 days from the date of the injury or when you become aware that your injury or illness is work-related. Promptly notifying your employer allows them to initiate the workers' compensation claim process, so you can receive the necessary medical treatment right away. Failure to report your injury within 30 days may jeopardize your eligibility for workers' compensation benefits.
