After over 30 years practicing workers’ compensation law, you can imagine that we’ve seen a wide variety of work injuries, specific causes and circumstances surrounding the injury. In January of 2018, we met with a Fontana resident who is a delivery truck driver serving for a large parcel delivery company. After over 20 years of lifting heavy packages, and moving large boxes this 39 year old suffered a severe herniated disc. This work injury made it impossible for him to continue working. Further complicating his claim, was a related repetitive motion injury he suffered in his neck.
What Did We Do?
After our client completed a free consultation with us and retained us as his attorney, we recommended a doctor
that he could see immediately to begin diagnosis and treatment for his injuries. We also collected all the relevant work history, medical records and prescription information. This information helps prepare a compelling claim for the Workers’ Compensation Board. Over the last 30+ years, we’ve developed a process that ensures the best possible success of our client’s claim. Going through the process without an experienced Fontana workers’ compensation lawyer significantly raises the chances that your claim will either be delayed or denied completely.
What Was the Result of This Case?
In this particular case, our client received what is called an “accepted claim” which means that the claims administrator agreed that his injury was covered by workers’ compensation. Additionally, we were able to secure a benefits structure including compensation, medical care and temporary disability benefits.
