Workers Compensation

Workers’ compensation is an established system designed to support workers due to a workplace injury or death.

Workers’ compensation law establishes a set of circumstances where employers owe workers special compensation as outlined by California law. This compensation is paid when an injury or death occurs while on the job and includes medical treatment, disability payments, supplemental benefits, and death benefits.

Disputes over workers’ compensation erupt in many circumstances including when an employer is not properly insured, when an employee does not receive adequate financial benefits, and when it is not immediately clear if the injury or death actually occurred at or during the course of work.

We defend the rights of workers to receive proper compensation, both medical and financial. At Ferchland Law Office we hang our hat on the following: Responsiveness, Experienced, Aggressive, Integrity. If you believe you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, contact us today for a free consultation.

Workplace Injury

Did you get hurt at your place of work? Getting injured was not your fault and you may be entitled to compensation.

If you suffer an injury at your place of employment, you are likely entitled to compensation. However, obtaining a fair settlement is usually a difficult endeavor. If you suffer an injury on the job, it is important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible.

At Ferchland Law, we will protect your rights as an injured worker. We will negotiate a fair settlement and protect you against retaliation. By hiring an experienced lawyer, you take the stress, vulnerability, and guesswork out of the negotiation. Workers compensation is a no-fault system, meaning whether the injury was your fault, the fault of another, or an accident, you may be entitled to benefits such as physical therapy, surgery, or disability payments provided by the insurance company.

Employment Disability

Employers cannot discriminate against qualified candidates during the application process or during employment due to a disability or mental impairment suffered at work.

California worker’s compensation prevents employers from discriminating against those who filed for such benefits. Under California Labor Code section 132a, it is illegal to fire, threaten to fire, or discriminate against an employee who has or plans to file a workers’ compensation claim.

If you have a disability or mental impairment, we will fight for your rights at Ferchland Law to not be discriminated against in the workforce due to your disability or mental impairment under Labor Code 132a.

If you believe you have been discriminated against by an employer due to your disability or mental impairment, contact us today for a free consultation.

Social Security Disability

Social Security Disability or SSI is a federal compensation benefit paid out to adults who have a disability or chronic illness that prevents them from working.

Social Security Disability or SSI benefits are paid to individuals who, having a physical and/or mental impairment, cannot work a full-time job. The application process is complex and many applicants are initially denied due to a variety of reasons including lack of sufficient medical evidence.

If you have been denied and a face a Social Security trial, don’t do it alone.

At Ferchland Law, we guide you through this complex process to and help marshal the medical records and supporting evidence needed for the judge’s review. We will prep you for trial, how to answer questions from the judge, and let you know what to expect from both the judge and vocational expert.

If you believe you may be entitled to Social Security disability benefits and have already been denied, or have questions about the process, contact us today for a free consultation.
