Frequently Asked Questions

  • Where Will I Be Treated for My Workplace Injuries if I Work in Irvine, CA?
    The medical center that treats you after a workplace injury will depend on the specifics of your coverage and if you predesignated a medical center as your preferred treatment location. If you have not named a predesignated medical center and you are seriously injured at work, you may be treated at Hoag Hospital – Irvine, Kaiser Permanente Orange County – Irvine Medical Center, or any of the other large medical centers in the region.
  • What Are My Rights if I’m a Restaurant Worker in Irvine and I Get Injured on the Job?
    You have the right to use your workers’ compensation insurance coverage if you are injured on the job as a restaurant worker in Irvine. You should tell your employer about your injury as soon as you can, so they can process your workers’ comp claim. You have the right to the full benefits owed to you under the policy, as well as the right to consult with a workers’ compensation attorney at any time.
  • I’m a Personal Trainer in Irvine Who Sees Clients in Their Homes, if I Get Hurt Training a Client, Can I File for Workers’ Comp?

    If you have workers’ compensation insurance provided by an employer or provided by a policy you purchased as a self-employed personal trainer, you should be covered by workers’ comp if you get hurt while working in a client’s home. The key detail is that you were doing job-related work when you were injured, so your coverage should still apply, even though you weren’t on company property.

  • I’m a Delivery Driver in Irvine – Am I Covered by Workers’ Compensation if I Get into an Accident While Making a Delivery?
    Workers who use their private vehicles for job-related tasks should be covered by workers’ compensation if they get into a car accident. However, many couriers and drivers who don’t use a company vehicle are considered independent contractors and may not be covered for that reason. You should talk with our attorneys to see if you are covered based on your employment status and job description.
  • My Employer in Another State, but I Work in Irvine, California – Do I Qualify for Workers’ Compensation in California?
    The California Division of Workers’ Compensation requires out-of-state employers to purchase California-recognized workers’ compensation coverage for any workers who regularly work in California. If you live in Irvine, work for a company in Florida, for example, and suffer a job-related injury, you should be able to file for workers’ compensation through California’s system, not Florida’s.
  • If I Get into an Accident While Commuting to or From Work in Irvine, Will I Be Covered by Workers’ Compensation?
    Generally, California workers’ compensation rules do not apply to workers who are commuting to and from work. It has been argued before and upheld by courts that commuting to work is not job-related in the spirit of workers’ compensation law because workers have the choice of where they live and how they commute.
  • Are Temporary Construction Workers in Irvine Eligible for Workers’ Compensation?
    Workers’ compensation in California covers all eligible employees, including temporary and part-time construction workers. You might not be covered by workers’ comp if you are an independent contractor, though.

  • What Is the Average Wait Time to Receive Benefits After Filing a Workers’ Compensation Claim in Irvine, CA?
    When a workers’ compensation claim is filed correctly and accepted by the insurance company, the average wait time to see the first benefits is only three days. Not all cases are handled and accepted smoothly, though, so the wait time for each case should be considered unique due to its specific details.
  • What Happens if My Employer in Irvine Refuses to Authorize Necessary Medical Treatment for My Work Injury?

    If your employer refuses to authorize the medical care you need for a work injury, you should still seek any medical treatment you need to recover. As soon as possible, you should also call a workers’ compensation attorney who can fight for your rights. You might have grounds to sue your employer for failing to comply with workers’ compensation requirements.

  • How Long Do I Have to Seek Medical Attention for a Work Injury in Irvine to Be Eligible for Workers’ Compensation Benefits?
    Injured workers in Irvine are required to report the injury to their employer within 30 days, and it is better to report it as soon as possible rather than waiting until the 30th day. If the work injury is reported before the 30-day limit, the worker should be eligible to receive workers’ comp benefits, which include medical treatments at no cost to them.
  • What Is the Deadline for Reporting a Work Injury in Irvine, CA?

    Under guidelines set by the California Department of Industrial Relations Division of Workers’ Compensation, an injured worker should report a work-related injury to their employer within 30 days. If no report is given within 30 days, the worker could lose their right to receive workers’ compensation benefits.

  • If I’m Hurt at Work in Irvine, Do I Get to Choose My Own Doctor?
    For workers’ compensation claims filed in California, the claims administrator can choose which doctor sees the injured worker for the first 30 days of treatment. If treatments are still required after 30 days, the injured worker can choose a new doctor or medical facility of their choice, as long as any required travel to the new physician is considered a “reasonable” distance. However, if you predesignate which doctor you want to treat you in case you’re in a work accident, the claims administrator may be required to use that predesignated choice.
  • How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer in Irvine, CA?
    California law limits how much a workers’ compensation attorney can charge for their services. Usually, an attorney can only be paid an amount between 10% and 30% of the total benefits awarded to the client, depending on the complexity of the case. At Alvandi Law Group, P.C. in Irvine, we strive to keep our attorney rates fair and competitive, so our legal counsel remains available to more people.
  • Do I Need a Lawyer to File a Workers’ Compensation Claim in Irvine, CA?
    You are not legally required to file a workers’ compensation claim with a lawyer’s help. However, it is highly recommended that you at least consult with an attorney before filing so you can see if legal counsel would benefit you based on the details of your case. Even administrative law judges with the CA Division of Workers’ Compensation often tell claimants to talk with an attorney before taking their claims any further.

We'll make sure your claim is filed quickly and accurately.

  • I been referred to this office by my brother and introduced to Michelle Espino. I had an injury that occurred 4 years ago and many said it would be impossible to reopen it since the statute of limitations would not allow it. They got my case open and got me the treatment I need thus far. Highly recommend them from my perspective.

  • I've dealt with Veronica Estrada on several cases, and I must say her work is one of a kind. There is never an issue when certain things need to get taken care of on a case. Prompt responses are always given from this office. I don't think they know what lag even means. I highly recommend this office for anyone in need of representation and wants that personal touch. No one does it better.
