It is no secret that California’s workers’ compensation system is a mess. Due to constantly changing regulations, intense lobbying from the insurance industry, and an overall out-of-touch legislature, the state’s workers’ comp system has turned into a bundle of dense legalese that is full of holes, inconsistencies, and complexities that can confuse even the most legally savvy individuals. Unfortunately, this leaves many injured workers unsure of what they should do or how they should even begin to pursue the financial benefits they need in the event of a workplace accident or illness.
At Pacific Workers’ Compensation Law Center, our advocates understand the feeling of helplessness you may be experiencing and are here to provide the trusted guidance you need during this confusing time. To help you make sense of your situation, our founding attorney, Eric J. Farber, Esq., has written an easy-to-read E-book compiling answers to some of the most frequently asked questions regarding California workers’ comp – a resource which we offer free to all.
