Hurt at Work? Call Gold Country

What are your options if you get hurt at work, either caused by a specific incident or by cumulative stress over time on any body part that eventually causes injury? You might not know what sort of benefits you are entitled to, if any. A work-related injury could happen to anyone, and every employer has to have the necessary accommodations so that their employees feel safe and can do their jobs efficiently without worrying about being heavily injured.

In fact, a common way to be hurt at work is in a result of a slip and fall. You could slip and fall due to dangerous or hazardous materials or conditions at your place of work. Dangerous conditions include a variety of different things such as unevenness in flooring, poor lighting, narrow stairs, or a wet and slippery floor. In some cases, it might have been your responsibility to, say, pick up and obstruction on the floor that is within your skillset and control, but other things are less your responsibility or just not even something you are capable of fixing yourself, especially depending on the kind of job you have.

Some of the most dangerous jobs involve being in areas and working conditions outside of your control such as lawn service, construction work, steelwork, driving trucks, fishing, and roofing.

At the end of the day, if you receive a specific injury while you were on the clock at your place of work that results in medical care, you are most likely entitled to workers’ compensation. It might be a bit hard to tell at first, in which case you could call an Attorney for a consultation to see what your options are.

An attorney can give you needed advice on how to move forward with your claim and even give you more legitimacy when dealing with an employer or agency that is still in the process of gaining their own evidence. It doesn’t cost you any more money upfront and the earlier you get an attorney involved, the more likely you are to avoid serious problems down the road, and not getting one early enough could cost you in your case. EARLY INTERVENTION WORKS!  Gold Country Workers’ Comp Center can help claimants with disabilities and injuries get the benefits they rightfully deserve, and our ability to be familiar with the evaluators is essential in obtaining a fair or even favorable evaluation since employers and their insurance companies will be working hard to save their own money at your expense.  The attorneys at Gold Country Workers’ Comp Center offer in depth free consultations to help ensure your claim produces results.

The assistance of an attorney at the time you have to make a statement for a deposition or ensuring things get filed on a timely basis can be very crucial. Gold Country has helped many people who have been hurt at work, so don’t hesitate to call us for a consultation at 530-362-7188 ;

Injured On The Job? Call GCWC

Workers Compensation Center Sacramento

Unfortunately for many, some careers have risks that end with people getting injured on the job. Some of the most dangerous jobs involve transportation, machinery, construction, and even sanitation. While a work-related injury could happen to anyone, it’s easier to see how a workplace with very dangerous work conditions can be held accountable if a worker has an accident while on the clock. Every employer has to have the necessary accommodations so that their employees feel safe and can do their jobs efficiently without worrying about being heavily injured.

Here is a list of some dangerous careers that could result in being injured on the job:

  • Landscapers, lawn service workers, and groundskeepers
  • Construction workers and extraction workers
  • Structural iron and steel workers
  • Ranchers and other agricultural workers
  • Truck drivers
  • Refuse and recyclable materials collectors
  • Roofers
  • Aircraft pilots and flight engineers
  • Fishers
  • Logging workers

At the end of the day, if you receive a specific injury or a series of small injuries that require medical care, or even if you receive an injury that developed over time, and it happened while you were on the clock at your place of work, you are most likely entitled to workers’ compensation. It might be a bit hard to tell at first, in which case you could call an Attorney for a consultation to see what your options are.

Gold Country Workers’ Comp Center is a law firm dedicated to helping their clients with disabilities and injuries, getting them the benefits they rightfully deserve. An attorney can give you adequate advice on how to move forward with your claim and even give you more legitimacy when dealing with an employer or agency that is still in the process of gaining their own evidence. It doesn’t cost you any more money up front the earlier you get an attorney involved, but not getting one early enough could cost you in your case.

The process of applying for Workers’ Compensation can seem complicated, and choosing an evaluating physician is a crucial step in the process.

Workers’ Compensation with Gold Country

You never know when you are going to need Workers’ Compensation benefits after having an accident at work. In fact, there are many ways you can suffer an accident at the workplace, and it can happen at a moment’s notice or over time (even over years) with stress and strain on a given body part sort of piling up until it becomes a real injury requiring treatment or even time off work.

You can encounter a slippery surface, might find that you need to climb a ladder for something, or someone left an obstructive object in the way of your regular path, or that you are injured just day-to-day doing your regular job.  So you could slip and/or fall, and everyone at one time or another, trips on their own feet, or loses their footing, but some falls can result in serious injuries. Heavy lifting is a requirement in some jobs or an irregular occurrence in other jobs, but regardless, one misstep or misjudgment of the weight and you can suffer a back, neck, or shoulder injury.

In more rare cases, you could be hit by a falling object, and this usually can happen in a warehouse-type environment, but if something is stored inadequately it can happen anywhere. Similarly, warehouses and businesses that work out of the back or stock rooms may operate forklifts or small vehicles. Operating them without proper training is dangerous as it is, but collisions could happen, and they’re not always without consequence.

Other kinds of work-related accidents involve cuts and lacerations, inhaling toxic fumes, exposure to loud/deafening noise, walking into objects, or even fights at work.  (So long as you are not the initial aggressor, injuries from a fight are compensable by Workers’ Comp.)

Circumstances need to be proven for an incident resulting from employment or “work-related” activity. This could mean different things depending on each claim and many of these injuries involve establishing liability against third parties responsible for providing an extra source of recovery for the injured worker.

So, if you have been involved in one of these accidents, how can a law firm help you with a Workers’ Compensation claim? If you get an attorney involved as early as possible, they can help you file the appropriate claims that best suit your situation. There are claims you can file that could provide protection to an injured worker from harassment, and a presence of an attorney for your Workers’ Compensation can give the employer or insurance company another reason to follow the law.

Gold Country Workers’ Comp Center is a law firm dedicated to assisting injured workers and disabled people. The law and regulations are always changing, and we are prepared to adapt as necessary, so our clients are not left guessing what the next step is. This process can be overwhelming and frustrating, but we want to get you the compensation you deserve. Call us toll-free at 877-233-8399.

Social Security law firm – GCWC

Workers Compensation Attorney

Social Security law firm – GCWC

It might be time to call a Social Security law firm if you are met with the unfortunate circumstance of not being able to perform your duties at work. Early intervention works, so you should never wait to get legal help or find out if you are entitled to any disability benefits. If you are out of work and can no longer perform as you used to, normally for people this means they suffered a life-altering injury or have developed underlying medical or psychological problems that were recently escalated. Our team at Gold Country Workers’ Comp Center is here to help you through the process of not only applying but being there every step of the way with you.

The Social Security Administration offers a disability program to most American citizens who meet certain requirements. The two programs are Social Security Disability Insurance benefits (SSDI) and the Supplemental Security Income program (SSI). Respectively, these programs are offered to Americans who have accumulated enough work credits or otherwise fall under a certain income level, but qualify as disabled under the SSA’s definition.

While tedious, applying for disability benefits is often pretty straight forward, and you can even do most of it online, but once the application is filed and processed, Social Security will begin to ask a lot of questions and will request a lot of follow-up information. Often times the beginning stages involve being denied which means claimants end up feeling very defeated. Every claim, no matter what the ailment is, requires enough evidence to support it. A Social Security law firm can help gather the information needed to prove you are unable to work for at least twelve months and determine you will not be able to return to work either.  If you claim for disability is denied by the SSA, you MUST appeal within 60 days or your rights will be seriously impaired.  You MUST be persistent.

Gold Country Workers’ Comp Center is a Social Security law firm that will help answer all your questions and make the process go as smoothly as possible, knowing the best people are working on your case. Our attorneys have worked many years aiding claimants with their disability cases, as we are aware of Social Security’s deadlines, their proceedings, and rules, which most people don’t know when they apply for benefits.

There’s no better time like the present, and you don’t need to wait to file a claim. We will make sure to use this time efficiently to get you the help you need and deserve, so no matter what the case may be, make sure to contact Gold Country Workers’ Comp Center as soon as possible. Contact our office for a free consultation or referral at 530-362-7188 or toll-free at 877-233-8399.

If a medical condition limits your ability to work, there is no better time than the present to call a disability law firm. There are many ways to help you depending on what caused your disability. Although some conditions might have developed over time or from an early age, if you were injured at work, if severe enough, it could turn into long-term issues with the need for long term financial support.

Gold Country Workers’ Comp Center is a very trusted and reliable disability law firm that can help you regain your lost wages and compensation if you suffered an injury while “on the clock.”  Workers’ Comp benefits are available for specific injuries, like falling or lifting too much, OR that result from micro day-to-day trauma on any body part that eventually develops to the point of needing to seek medical care or take time off.  We can help you file the appropriate forms and guide you through the possibly lengthy process. While this is going on, you might also qualify for other programs as well. In fact, if you are still employed there might already be benefits offered to you by your employer you might not have been aware about. We can also help determine if you qualify for a private insurance policy, as the definition of “disabled” varies and might involve some measures to be sure you are eligible.

A PIECE OF ADVICE:  DO NOT MISS WORK FOR MEDICAL REASONS WITHOUT A DOCTOR’s REPORT SUPPORTING THE NEED TO TAKE SOME TIME OFF TO PURSUE MEDICAL TREATMENT!  Disability benefit programs all require medical evidence in support of whatever benefit is being pursued.

When it comes to California residents, there’s a small percentage of every employee’s paycheck that is deducted and paid into a special disability insurance fund. If you cannot perform your regular work duties and suddenly find yourself out of work due to your conditions and you are not receiving any other type of comparable benefits, then you might be eligible to receive these funds.

Of course, if you do not meet certain disability requirements or cannot substantiate these claims, do not worry, as there are still a few programs available to all Americans that can help you while you’re dealing with your illnesses and being without an income. SNAP benefits will help you if you have a low income, TANF (temporary assistance for needy families), a program that also benefits low-income families, and Unemployment benefits provide assistance if you are involuntarily unemployed but are still seeking employment in the near future. Some of these are rather temporary, but can surely help you. It’s not easy navigating all of the different requirements for these programs, which is why a disability law firm can be there to guide you and meet the appropriate deadlines for all of them.

No matter the issue you are facing, we are certainly here to help you. Call Gold Country Workers’ Comp Center at our toll-free number 877-233-8399 or (530) 362 7188 for a free consultation today. Early intervention works, so do not hesitate to pick up the phone even if you have a few questions.  Getting an early understanding of the possible benefits available to those with medical conditions that interfere with work is very important.  We will help you through this transition and relieve any insecurities.
