If you have been the victim of a workplace injury, the Law Offices of Scot D. Shoemaker can help you take the steps necessary to get the benefits you need. The first step in this process is to file a workers' compensation claim.
If you have reported your injury to your employer, but your employer hasn't filed a workers' compensation claim, our law firm can file the claim for you. It is important to understand that employers are required to file a claim with their insurance carrier within 24 hours of a report of injury. If they fail to comply with the law, this can often be an indication that they will try to avoid paying benefits. With a lot at stake, you need an experienced Bay Area workers compensation lawyer on your side.

Of course, filing a workers' compensation claim is an important first step, but it is not enough. Our law firm also files an application for adjudication of the claim, which will assign a case number. Having a case number is necessary to go to court for an expedited hearing or for any other type of courtroom procedure that may be necessary to get you the benefits you need.
Filing a workers' compensation claim does not guarantee benefits. All too often, perfectly valid claims are denied by the workers' comp insurance company. That is no reason to give up. With over 20 years of experience on our side, we know the steps to take to overcome denied claims. We can help get you the benefits you deserve.

Do not wait to pursue the compensation you are entitled to. We handle work injury cases in the Northern California Bay Area on a contingency basis.
If there is no recovery, there will be no fee.
