Should You Hire A West Covina Workers’ Compensation Attorney?
No matter the severity, if you’ve suffered an injury at work, then contact our team of attorneys. That said, some situations make a workers’ compensation lawyer completely necessary. Some of those situations include:
- Your employer doesn’t pay your benefits promptly or denies your claim outright.
- The settlement your employer offered doesn’t cover your lost wages or the extent of your medical bills.
- You plan to apply for or already receive Social Security disability benefits.
- The medical problems you suffered prevented you from going back to work in your full capacity or kept you from working altogether.
- Your injury resulted from a third party’s actions or serious misconduct at the hands of your employer.
- A boss at your place of employment retaliated against you for filing your claim.
What Should You Do If You’ve Suffered A West Covina Work-Related Injury?
No matter how severe, if you’ve suffered a work-related injury, then the first thing you should do (after seeking medical attention if necessary) reports your injury to your supervisor. If you can, ensure you make the report in writing.
Once you’ve reported your West Covina work-related injury, it’s time to start filing your workers’ compensation claim. Do so quickly because, under California Labor Code, there is a statute of limitations on filing your claim. You have one year after discovering your injury to file. After that year is up, you’re no longer eligible to file or seek benefits for your injury.
When filing your claim, do so with a qualified workers’ compensation attorney in West Covina. Doing so without an attorney’s help can make things far more difficult than they need to be. Contact us to learn more about filing your claim today!

John Hernandez and crew were amazing. Super friendly yet very professional. Any questions I had they answered and I was very happy how my case was handled.
John Hernandez is smart, ethical, hard-working, and committed to the highest standards of excellence and professionalism. I would confidently refer anyone seeking legal representation for a work injury to John Hernandez, Esq., APC.
I absolutely loved the way Mr Hernandez handled my case. I wish I had started with him. The Firm I originally hired dropped the ball & John Hernandez was there to get the job done!
Mr. John Hernandez and staff, work hard to win your case! Their professionalism, work ethic, including communication is on point.
I was being beat up with a legal situation and because I am not an attorney, I was unaware of my rights. I was referred to John Hernandez Law Offices, and that initial phone call lifted a weight off of my shoulders
I was with another attorney ( see review) and was lucky to find John. He got the ball rolling and had things done in short months, last attorney couldn’t do in over a year ! Thanks John !
John was very knowledgeable, professional and always kept me well formed throughout the process. John won my case and obtained a nice settlement to compensate me for my injury.
