Workers' Compensation law involves the representation of the injured worker in connection with industrial (work) injury and disease claims. The Law Offices of Ramon R. Orduno represents Applicants (injured workers) in their claims for Workers' Compensation benefits.
A work related injury can be defined in many ways. Many people don't realize that an injury can take place over a period of time, even years. In many cases, you don't need to have a specific accident or injury, like lifting a heavy object or slipping or falling, to have injured yourself. Some injuries are actually diseases caused by exposures to dangerous substances that do not manifest themselves as diseases until many years later. If you believe that you have been injured in any way at work or as a result of your work, please contact The Law Offices of Ramon R. Orduno as soon as possible. The Law Offices of Ramon R. Orduno understands the devastating effect an accident at work can have on your life and the lives of your loved ones. We have handled hundreds of cases for injured workers and we get the maximum benefits for their injuries. Under California law, an injured employee may be entitled to medical care, temporary disability benefits, permanent disability benefits, vocational rehabilitation as well as additional benefits.
Making a false or fraudulent workers' compensation claim is a felony subject to up to 5 years in prison or a fine of up to $50,000 or double the value of the fraud, whichever is greater, or by both imprisonment and fine.
