La Puente Work Injury Lawyers
We Fight Hard to Protect Injured Workers’ Rights
If you get injured on the job, you’re entitled to certain benefits, including coverage for any resulting medical expenses and reimbursement for wages lost while you’re healing. If your employer has a workers’ compensation program in place and agrees that the injury occurred while you were working, getting those benefits should be fairly straightforward. However, if you find yourself facing obstacles after suffering a workplace injury, LG Law Center, Inc. can help.

Dedicated to Representing Injured Workers
At LG Law Center, Inc., we’ve seen a number of complex workers’ compensation cases. No claim is too complex for our work injury attorneys in La Puente to handle.
Our firm can help you if:
- The money your employer offers is not enough to cover all of your doctors’ bills or lost wages. If you find yourself dipping into your own pocket after a workplace injury, it’s time to get a professional involved.
- Your employer says the injury did not happen in the course of your employment. Workers’ comp law is complicated and there are a number of regulations around what exactly constitutes an injury that can be covered. Getting a knowledgeable workers’ compensation attorney on your side will help you defend your rights and get you the protection you deserve.
- You feel you’re being punished at work for filing a workers’ comp claim. You are well within your rights to get medical and lost wages coverage after a workplace injury. If you feel your employer is discriminating against you because you used workers’ comp, get an attorney involved. This kind of discrimination is unlawful.
- Your injury will permanently prevent you from doing the job you used to do. Don’t worry! You’re entitled to protection if you have a permanent disability resulting from your workplace injury.
How Soon Should I File My Workers’ Compensation Claim?
It is best if you notify your employer about your injury as soon as possible. Once your employer has provided you with your DWC-1 claim form, you should fill it out and turn it in within 30 days of when the injury occurred.
What happens if I miss the deadline?
If you miss the 30 day deadline for filing your claim, you run the risk of having your claim denied. If you are past the 30 day deadline, you should contact a workers’ compensation attorney immediately, to discuss whether or not there are exceptions to the deadline that you may qualify for.
How Our Firm Can Help
Workers’ compensation law is complex. Getting the full benefits you deserve can come down to knowing what paperwork to file and when. Our La Puente workplace injury attorneys have years of experience representing injured workers in California. We can help you negotiate with your employer and their insurer so you get the right benefits at the right times.
Beyond negotiations, one of our services includes helping you find an unbiased doctor who will provide an accurate assessment of your injury, rather than one who will favor the employer. We can also help you manage the mountain of forms that will come with getting the right medical treatment and ensuring you never have to pay for any of it.
Suffering an injury at work is stressful enough. That stress only increases when you’re spending hours at the doctor and healing, unable to bring home the paycheck to which you’re accustomed. Why not let us take some of that stress off your plate?
At LG Law Center, Inc. our goal is to take some of the pain out of a workplace injury. We can help you fight for an appropriate settlement or, if need be, represent you in court so that you get the treatment and compensation you need.
