Workers Compensation Injury
Helping work injury victims throughout California
When an employer becomes aware of a work-related injury or illness, it is expected to begin providing benefits to the injured worker. Sometimes a dispute may arise between the claims administrator and the injured worker over benefits.
Workers’ compensation laws provide injured or disabled employees who were hurt on the job with potential monetary awards. Benefits are also provided for dependents of those workers who are killed because of work-related accidents or illnesses.
If you or a loved one has been injured at work, Nabi Law will fight to protect your rights.
You should call an attorney when:
- Your employer refuses to believe you were injured on the job.
- The insurance carrier has denied you benefits.
- You can’t get necessary medical treatment.
- The insurance adjuster promises benefits or care that never arrives

Doctors in California’s workers’ compensation system are required to provide evidence-based medical treatment. That means they must choose treatments scientifically proven to cure or relieve work-related injuries and illnesses. Those treatments are laid out in a set of guidelines that provide details on which treatments are effective for certain injuries, as well as how often the treatment should be given (frequency), the extent of the treatment (intensity), and for how long (duration), among other things.
As an injured worker you might disagree with what the treating doctor says about a work injury or treatment. There could be other disagreements over medical issues in the claim. A doctor has to address those disagreements. In that case you may agree on a medical evaluator (AME) or, if you can’t agree, you can be evaluated by a qualified medical evaluator (QME).
