Uninsured Employer Workers’ Comp Claims
For uninsured employer workers comp claims in Northern California, including Oakland, Concord, San Jose, Salinas Sacramento and Stockton, trust the team at Ratto Law Firm, P.C.
Suffering a work related injury or illness, and the lost wages and potential medical expenses that can come with that situation, is difficult enough without finding out that your employer is uninsured.
Please understand that if this is the case your employer is breaking California State law regarding an employer’s obligation to be insured for this reason.
Fortunately, the Uninsured Employers Benefits Trust Fund (UEBTF) is a fund specifically for workers who have experienced this kind of situation, though ensuring that your particular case qualifies for reimbursement from this fund can be difficult without proper legal representation.
Our attorneys have a very good trial record when it comes to winning decisions for our clients regarding cases of this type, and are here to advise and advocate for you when you may feel you don’t know what to do next.
A case like this requires, for the most part, the same things that a normal workers’ compensation hearing requires: that the claim is filed within 30 days, that any and all documentation is admitted, and that the injury or illness meets state guidelines for a claim.
We understand that this can be a frightening time for you, but you can trust that Ratto Law Firm, P.C. is here to help you get back on track and taken care of.
