We never stop learning and keep up to date with all the latest developments. We are able to prepare and file your claim while keeping an eye out for issues that commonly arise.
Meeting the requirements and deadlines
The legal process is complex and sometimes scary. Workers’ compensation cases involve filling out mandated forms. Taking on this task without the assistance of an experienced workers’ compensation attorney makes the process all the more frightening. This is especially true when you are injured and just want to get back on your feet without the added headache of calculating the statute of limitations on your claim or facing any of the other issues that arise in a workers’ compensation case. We calculate the date by which you must file your claim, and we complete the necessary and required paperwork, including, when necessary:
- Invoking the assistance of the Workers' Compensation Appeals Board
- Reopening a closed case
- Closing an old case
We pride ourselves on keeping current on the rules and requirements to file your claim, and we have the technology to complete the forms the court reviews.
How to file a claim
You should request a claim form if you are injured at work. Alternatively, your employer has one working day after learning of your injury or illness to provide you with a claim form. The Law Office of Scott A. Schwartz reviews your case to make sure you are not out of time to file your claim. We prepare all the necessary paperwork for you. We have the experience needed to not only properly file your claim, but to process the case from start to finish. At the Law Office of Scott A. Schwartz, helping injured people is our business.
