On the job, injuries are often associated with slip and fall accidents or some type of machinery malfunction. It is important to know that these are not the only kinds of accidents one can face in a San Fernando Valley workplace.
Every profession has its own workplace hazards that need to be monitored appropriately. If you believe that you may have incurred an injury while on the job you need to contact the Law Offices of Kropach & Kropach today.

The list is non-exhaustive. Our Law Offices of Kropach & Kropach attorneys in the San Fernando Valley are trained to handle all kinds of injuries from construction accidents, amputations, brain injuries, and building collapses.
The three most important steps to take following an injury on the job are to report the injury to your supervisor immediately, request to see a doctor, and complete a workers’ compensation claim form as soon as possible. When you report the injury and complete the claim form your employer is obligated to assist you in receiving medical treatment, and it makes denying liability for your workers’ compensation injury much more difficult. If you had an accident at work but for some reason, you did not have pain immediately – there may be other factors including continued work that lead to a work disabling injury. Delays in reporting an injury can create doubt that something else after the injury led to your pain. Report any significant workplace injury and seek medical attention as soon as possible – preventive and/or conservative care after an injury can prevent small tears and injuries from becoming severe labor disabling injuries.
Delaying to report the claim can create serious problems in obtaining workers’ compensation medical treatment and disability payments. If there was a delay, you should contact a workers’ compensation attorney for assistance in obtaining benefits—as delays are a common reason for insurance to deny workers’ compensation claims. Immediate action with medical care and prompt reporting will ensure that the workers’ compensation benefits are not delayed, will increase your chances for the best possible medical recovery, and increase your chances of getting workers’ compensation benefits with the least possible delay. Again workers compensation claims should be filed as soon as possible and preferably not while you are out of work with no income.
