Work accidents, such as scaffolding accidents, heavy machinery accidents, crane accidents, chemical spills, explosions, fires, and slip and fall accidents, can cause potentially life-threatening injuries. Work-related accidents may also result in the tragic death of a worker. The workers’ comp attorneys in Los Angeles at the Mitchell Law Corporation will work vigorously to defend the legal rights of individuals who have suffered an injury at work, or worse, suffered the devastating loss of a family member. Our experienced team can help victims navigate the complex legal system and offer support during what it for most, the hardest time of their lives. Keep in mind, without aggressive legal representation; it can be very difficult for victims to secure a settlement that meets both their current and future medical needs.
Report Your Work-Related Injury Immediately
Keep in mind, if you were injured in a work-related accident or developed a work-related injury, you must fill out and submit a Workers’ Compensation Claim Form (DCW-1) to your employer within 30 days of the date the injury was sustained or the date you became aware of the injury. After submitting your DCW-1 form, your employer has five days to file the claim with their insurance carrier on your behalf. Before speaking with an insurance agent, however, we highly recommend you speak with a work comp attorney in San Diego at the Mitchell Law Corporation first.
Help for Work Comp Denied or Delayed Claims
If you received a letter that your workers’ compensation claim was denied or your employer delayed reporting your work-related injury, we highly recommend you phone our firm as soon as possible. It can be difficult to challenge a denial or delay without expert legal representation and we can help get your case back on track.

Per California law, every victim has a specific amount of time to file a workers’ compensation claim. In most cases, a victim has one year from the date he or she was injured to file a claim, however, the time allowed to file a claim may vary depending on the victim’s injury. If a claim is not filed within the time allowed by the state, the victim may be denied the ability to file a claim and therefore, will not be allowed to pursue workers’ compensation benefits. Our experienced team of lawyers has litigated thousands of workers’ compensation cases and can protect victims from filing deadlines.
