Generally, employers in Los Angeles and elsewhere in California employ two tactics to deceive their injured workers or deny their workers’ compensation claims: offering money to bypass the workers’ comp system and misinterpreting how a workplace injury occurred to deny coverage. It is not uncommon for employers to approach their injured employees with a seemingly good offer right after the employee notifies the employer about the on-the-job injury. The employer may offer such employee money and an adequate time off from work to recover in exchange for not filing a workers’ compensation claim.
That is why Los Angeles workers’ compensation attorney William Kropach always says: if you have been injured at work and want to recover workers’ comp benefits, be prepared for a nerve-racking, tedious, and oftentimes unfair process. If you are looking for a way to make it less complicated and increase your chances of recovery, it is highly advised that you seek legal advice of a William Kropach at Law Offices of Kropach & Kropach.
