California Workers' Compensation

California workers' compensation is designed to supplement or replace the income of an employee who is injured in job-related accident. Workers' compensation benefits typically provide compensation for lost wages in the form of temporary or permanent disability benefits, medical care, and necessary retraining or rehabilitation. Benefits are generally payable to the injured employee or, in the case of death as a result of the accident, the employee's survivors.

California "No Fault" Workers' Compensation

California's workers' compensation insurance is based on a "no fault" doctrine. This means that an employee does not have to prove the injury is someone else's fault so they can receive workers' compensation benefits. Benefits are given regardless of fault if the injury is job related.

California Workers' Compensation Claims

Workers Compensation Form Among the claims that can be made in a workers' compensation complaint are that benefits have been unreasonably denied or delayed, that full entitled benefits have not been provided, that employees have been forced back to work against medical advice, or that employees are forced to speak with a doctor who is not impartial and orders the employee back to work. Employees who have their claims denied can file an appeal of the decision.

When appeals are filed, there is specific paperwork that must be filled out on short deadlines. Employees who want their case heard by a judge must file an Application for Adjudication of Claim and other supporting paperwork. If necessary, a trial will be scheduled after which a judge issues a written decision. The process can be complex and claimants may want to consider consulting with a workers' compensation attorney who is experienced at handling such claims.

California Workers' Compensation Lawsuit

In July 2016, a lawsuit was filed against California's Division of Workers' Compensation in Los Angeles, alleging the system discriminates against women and makes compensation decisions based on gender-biased stereotypes. The lawsuit alleges, for example, that a double mastectomy due to work-induced breast cancer is not eligible for disability benefits whereas prostate cancer is.

I have a maltifacited very lucrative case which is gonna take someone who is really hungry for Blood. These lawyers , Doc. And insurance companies are all making money. Meanwhile I've lost 16years of my life in general and more importantly with my kids. My injury took everything I love even the fun loving youthful playful guy I used to be and turned him into a person who fights to find reasons to stay here. Mostly because Ben tho I'm homeless now because I haven't received any monitary help from those responsible for this situation since middle of 05, I have had to scrap by of. The kindness of loved ones and friends and they are almost as tired of this as me. Please call me so I can explain to you the full scope and depth of this case. They're have been many things that have gone wrong in this case and largely because of the poor attention and neglect this case was given by my soon to be ex lawyers. They have been tainted since day one. After the divorce with my ex. They have done more advicating for her then for me. And have a conflict in interest. Especially when you factor in the ex did favors like got my Paralegal (lawyer) because he never sees my case. She got her brother a job at her work. And they do more to make sure she gets something then they worry about me. MSA evaluated the future set aside at 480,000 conservatively daughter yet my attorneys have encouraged me to take it because they have been paid already and stoped advocating for me years ago. I asked for all the correspondencebetween there lawyers and them and what they sent to me was shocking. They've never gone to bat for me to demand what I'm entitled to. If the make the request at all it had been only because the good doctor I once had in 09 before he retired made them accountable. Since then they put me out to sea and want me to take the nothing they're offering so I don't show the judges what an absolutely horribly neglectful, incompetent and bad faith law they practice. I truly believe they've been paid to shelve my case by insurgence co. I rushed them in they're offices before where they promise the world and then never deliver. I need to spot them from ever treating a wounded, sick, and spiritually broken individual such as myself, from having to expirence anything this cruel. They take no credit for allowing this case to go no where and try to blame the injured party. I'm not the highly paid professional who's job it is to know the law and advocate for me. As per our contract. They've been paid. And now they want me to fire them so they won't be accountable for all the aweful directions and major side effects that our now part of this case. Cymbalta - Stryker O.P. 1 bone puddy ( which has cased organs to become petrified and removed. And sexual problems along with a luandry list of problems they've allowed to go unnoticed by the insurance co. And seriously effect me. They've gotta be relieved as my counsel and I need an ass kicker reading to reap the major money my pain and suffering can bring out way when handled properly. I still need help getting disability. Please, if you are hungry and easy to work on a winning case. Please get ahold of me. If not, maybe you know someone who is. This my life. Nothing can replace what I've lost with my loved ones. My kids! But I should would love them to have to answer for all they've done and taken from my family. And I'd love to start my business and leave something for my kids. Please call me at 951)216-1291 ask for Ben Blood. This is important. Let's make it a memorable case because what they do isn't right and shouldn't be leagal. They helped the people they where supposed to protect me from. Destroy me. Please help. My best friend from Arkansas is running for a seat in the house of congress and is very influential maybe this could be his torch for those who need a voice. Let me know!
