Work injuries can lead to permanent and painful disabilities in the future. If anything were to unfortunately happen, your employer, the insurance companies, and their lawyers always find it in their best interest to settle as quickly as possible and for the least amount of money and/ or in many cases they may even deny workers’ compensation benefits you’re legally entitled to. It is in your best interest to find out the cause of any new pain, sensation or symptom that you feel could be caused by an industrial/work-related injury. You want to see a doctor immediately!

At Savin Bursk Law, we understand the difficulties and complications with these life altering injuries, and we also know the right doctors to seek medical advice to have you thoroughly checked out. In California, if you even suspect you may have injuries as a result of an incident at work, you are entitled to a thorough examination, and we can help.

Sudden or Gradual Onset of Pain, Sensations or Symptoms

If you are experiencing serious pain, sensations or symptoms and are unsure of the cause, it could very well be a result of your job. You may be entitled to a no-cost medical examination by a doctor who will determine if your pain, sensations, or symptoms is the result of a work-related/industrial injury.

Benefits

In most cases, we are able to obtain injured workers that suffered a work injury, temporary disability benefits/payments and medical treatment. While an injured worker is temporarily disabled and unable to work, he/she may be entitled to receive temporary disability indemnity. This payment has a maximum payout and will be based on the injured person’s average weekly wages, as well as the date of your injury. In addition, we typically can obtain permanent disability benefits/payments (money award) for our clients who were injured at work. The amount of the permanent disability award will vary depending upon the severity of the injury and the lasting effect of the injury. All benefits in workers’ compensation are tax-free.

Dependents of workers who die as a result of a work injury may be entitled to compensation including death benefits, medical treatment costs, and burial expenses.
