My Commitment: Putting You First

An Experienced Workers’ Compensation Attorney In California

When an injury happens at work, it can be difficult to get the medical care you need. That first medical visit after the injury may go smoothly, but follow-up care can be difficult to get. Unfortunately, workers’ compensation applicants frequently aren’t sure which doctors they should be seeing. They aren’t confident that they know how to get approval for a particular doctor or procedure. Often, the wait to get in to see a specialist is extremely long.

Overcoming these and other challenges requires the help of an experienced lawyer. If you or a loved one has a work-related injury, you want an experienced workers’ compensation attorney on your side who can help you get the medical care you need and the compensation you are entitled to by law. I’m Stephen Dial at Dial & Associates PC, a workers’ comp firm in Anaheim Hills. I have more than 35 years of experience helping people like you get workers’ comp benefits.

With my help, you won’t have to worry about how you will pay for treatment or if the treatment you are getting is right for the injuries you’ve suffered. I will share our knowledge and experience with you so that you can be confident in the care you are getting and your legal representation every step of the way.

What Is Workers’ Compensation?

The first workers’ compensation laws were passed in Wisconsin in 1911. Throughout the next few years, all states in the U.S. instituted insurance-based workers’ compensation systems, with Mississippi being the last state to pass such a system in 1948. The system was put into place as a historic compromise between workers and their employers so that workers could get the treatment they needed for their work-related injuries promptly rather than waiting for treatment and so that the employer could avoid costly civil litigation.

California Workers’ compensation benefits are designed to provide you with the medical treatment you need to recover from illnesses or injuries due to workplace accidents or issues. There are benefits available to partially replace the wages you lose while you are recovering from your injuries or illness, and help you return to work. Workers’ compensation does not include damages for pain and suffering or punitive damages.

Putting Clients First – Always

I make it my mission to put you, the client, at the forefront of everything I do. I understand how difficult it is to make your way through the complexities of the workers’ comp process. I’m here to guide you through every step.

Representing Workers From All Walks Of Life

Every worker deserves compensation and medical coverage for work-related injuries, no matter their field or occupation. I stand up for:

  • Construction workers
  • Warehouse staff
  • Office workers
  • Drivers, truckers and delivery personnel
  • Disneyland employees
  • Health care providers, including nurses and doctors

I represent workers throughout the Anaheim Hills area.

Pursuing Lifetime Benefits For Disabled Workers

My commitment to you extends beyond just filing claims. I also tackle more complex issues, like claims under the California Subsequent Injury Benefits Trust Fund (SIBTF). This fund is designed to provide lifelong benefits for disabled workers who already had a disability or impairment before suffering a work-related injury.

Not all lawyers delve into this niche area. It’s a big part of my practice because I believe in fighting for every benefit that my clients are entitled to.

Getting Compensation From Uninsured Employers

Although the law requires employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance, some employers fail to comply with the law and don’t have the proper insurance to protect their employees. If you find yourself in this unfortunate situation, I can help you file a civil lawsuit against your employer to recover the money you need for medical expenses and time missed from work directly from them, rather than through workers’ compensation insurance. Their failure to carry insurance can be reported, and they may also face fines and penalties for failing to have the proper workers’ compensation insurance.

Pay Nothing Out Of Pocket For High-Caliber Legal Representation

I handle all workers’ compensation cases in accordance with California Law. This means you don’t have to worry about paying for my services out of pocket, and I won’t be paid until your claim is resolved and my fees are approved. My fees will be approved by the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board and will be deducted from your workers’ compensation benefits. Normally, attorney’s fees range from 9% to 15% of your total benefits.
