Workers Compensation is an insurance program put in place by the federal government to medically treat and financially compensate employees who have been injured on the job. Each state mandates its individual laws for the administration of workers’ compensation claims, payments, procedures, and legal proceedings. If you have been injured or became ill while performing work as an employee, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation. It is important to know your rights to be sure you receive the appropriate medical care and compensation due to you.
Workplace injuries can be very complex and range from simple injuries that heal in a few weeks to devastating ones that may never resolve. No matter where you fall on this spectrum, the Barkhordarian Law Firm can help you determine what needs to be done to protect your rights and help you get what you deserve.

The Workers’ Compensation Process
The claims and appeal process can be daunting. There are steps you need to take to successfully file a claim.
- Notify your employer. It is important to document your injury in person or in writing right away.
- File a workers compensation claim. Our skilled attorneys are valuable advocates in this process.
- Comply with your insurance carrier or employer to investigate and validate your claim. Much of the “heavy lifting” happens during this phase. If your claim is accepted, you begin receiving monetary and medical benefits.
- Undergo a new doctor evaluation once you obtain maximum medical improvement (MMI). It is essential that you receive proper evaluation during this step to determine current and future benefits. It’s wise to have an advocate on your side, rather than rely on your employer’s insurance carrier to make this determination.
- Appeal your claim if it’s denied. Let our attorneys represent you before the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board. We have the knowledge and experience to advocate for your rights before the judges.
