What can Bill Landsiedel do for you?
What is an industrial injury?
Because cumulative trauma injuries often slowly develop over a long period of time, many injured workers do not realize they even have an industrial injury. Cumulative trauma injuries can range from carpel tunnel syndrome to back pain. If you have a job that consists of repetitive movements, the aches and pains that you are experiencing are likely related. As a result, it is your employer’s responsibility to cover your medical expenses for treatment.
Am I entitled to benefits while I am not working?
There are maximum caps for the weekly amount of TD that you may collect. In addition, there are limits for the length of time that you may collect TD benefits. There are several factors to consider in these calculations, namely the date of your injury. Please contact The Law Office of William Landsiedel so that we may help ensure that you are receiving the maximum benefits you are entitled to under California Workers’ Compensation laws.
What happens when my doctor declares that I’ve reached maximum medical improvement?
At this point, any TD benefits that you have been paid will cease and you will be issued Permanent Disability (“PD”) benefits. Your doctor will determine if you are able to return to work, and if so, in what capacity.
Additional information about being declared permanent and stationary can be found here.
The insurance company for workers’ compensation is handling my case, why do I need an attorney?
Insurance companies will have attorneys fighting for their side – you deserve the same. You need an attorney who will fight for you through every step of the process. The Law Office of William Landsiedel will ensure that you are receiving the maximum benefits allowed under California Workers’ Compensation law. We will also ensure that you receive the treatment that you need to fully recover from your injuries.
