5 Ways A Claim Could Help You Recover

If a serious accident injury on the job has put you out of work — and you're desperate to know what to do now without sufficient income — Law Office of Howard J. Stevens, APC, can be an informative resource and skilled guide. We can explain the workers' compensation benefits to which you may be entitled.

Our law firm has provided quality representation for injured workers in San Diego County for more than 35 years. We use a wealth of legal knowledge, aggressive advocacy, our lawyer's insurance claims examiner background and tradition of personal service to pursue solutions for employees seeking benefits.

How Could Filing A Workers' Compensation Help You?

There are five kinds of workers' compensation benefits that you or surviving family members may be eligible for after suffering a serious accident or an injury related to "continuous trauma," including:

  1. Medical care — The employer covers hospital bills, rehabilitative therapy or other necessary medical costs following a work-related injury or illness.
  2. Permanent disability — Payments owed to you if complete recovery is impossible and you now have a mental or physical disability.
  3. Temporary disability — To recover wages if your condition cannot improve while you are working.
  4. Supplemental job displacement — Vouchers that pay for retraining for other jobs, if the previous duties cannot be resumed.
  5. Death benefits — Payments to family members if a work injury or illness proves fatal.

However, you likely will not receive any benefits after a work accident until you stand up for your rights. At Law Office of Howard J. Stevens, APC, we can advocate for your financial and medical needs throughout the process of pursuing your workers' compensation claim.
