Sometimes Accidents Just Happen

No one plans on getting injured. You work hard, you play hard, you enjoy your life. But, accidents can—and often do—happen.
An injury can turn your life upside down. And though you can't change what happened, you can focus on what needs to be done to heal and move forward. Having an experienced, knowledgeable attorney on your side to help ensure you receive the full range of the benefits to which you're entitled is vital.

GEK Is Here to Help

For more than three decades, the Workers' Compensation attorneys at Gordon, Edelstein, Krepack, Grant, Felton & Goldstein, LLP have been fighting to win justice for members of the communities we serve.

Our Inland Empire office, which is located in Ontario, services Riverside and San Bernardino counties. We represent people from many walks of life in both the public and private sector, including:

  • Peace Officers
  • Firefighters
  • Teachers
  • Nurses
  • Retail Clerks
  • County and State Employees
  • Hospitality Industry Workers
  • Janitors
  • Airline Workers
  • Utility Workers
  • Laundry Workers
  • Delivery Personnel
  • Warehouse Workers

Steps to Follow

Report your work-related injury or illness, regardless of the nature or severity, to your supervisor immediately. Request an "Employee's Claim for Workers' Compensation Benefits" form from your supervisor, complete the "Employee" section accurately and return it to your supervisor as soon as possible. Be sure to list all the affected body parts. Ask your employer to fill out his or her section; legally, your employer has 24 hours to return the completed form to you. Keep a copy of the completed claim form for your personal records.

You will undoubtedly be asked to be evaluated by a state panel Qualified Medical Examiner. If you ignore the process, the employer will pick the physician for you. If you participate in the process, you have a say in which doctor evaluates your injury. Keep in mind that this evaluation impacts your treatment and monetary compensation.

No One Is to Blame

Workers' Compensation is a no-fault system; benefits are paid for injuries on the job regardless of fault. There is no lawsuit or civil action against your employer. Any dispute concerning what benefits are owed is heard by an administrative law Judge at one of two dozen Workers' Compensation Appeals Boards (i.e., court) throughout the state of California.

Injured workers are entitled to have an attorney assist them with their claim, guiding them through the system and advocating on their behalf. It is unlawful for an employer to discriminate against workers for claiming an injury and/or hiring an attorney to assist them.
