Modesto Injured Workers' Lawyers

Serving Workers Throughout Sacramento, Stockton & the Central Valley

If you were injured at work or lost a loved one in a work-related accident, you likely have many questions. First and foremost, it’s important that you understand your rights. In the state of California, any worker who is injured while performing any act that benefits his or her employer is entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. This means that if you were injured on the clock, while traveling for work, at your actual workplace, while driving a commercial vehicle, or in any other incident related to your employment, you could receive compensation for your medical expenses and lost wages.

At Rancaño & Rancaño, APLC, we understand that the process of filing a workers’ compensation claim or appealing a denied claim can be daunting, especially when you are concerned with getting proper medical treatment and staying on top of your bills and other day-to-day expenses. With three office locations in Modesto, Sacramento, and Stockton, our legal team is here to handle all of the legal aspects of your claim so that you can focus on what matters: healing.

In addition to workers’ compensation and work-related injury cases, our firm also handles personal injury claims involving motor vehicle accidents and wrongful death.

Frequently Asked Questions

Your Questions Are Ours to Answer
  • Am I covered by workers’ compensation?

    Yes; with very few exceptions, all employees in California are covered by workers’ compensation, regardless of the size of the business, the number of employees, or whether you work full- or part-time. Only independent contractors may not be covered and, in such cases, the onus is on the employer to prove that a claimant is, in fact, an independent contractor.

  • What benefits does workers’ compensation provide?

    In California, workers’ compensation insurance covers injured employees’ medical care costs, as well as temporary disability benefits, permanent disability benefits, supplemental job displacement benefits, return-to-work supplements, and/or death benefits. For more information on the benefits you are eligible to receive, please contact Rancaño & Rancaño, APLC for a free consultation.

  • Does workers’ compensation cover all work-related injuries?

    Yes, generally speaking, workers’ compensation covers any injury or illness you incur while carrying out any duties that benefit your employer. There are several exceptions, however. For example, if you are injured at work while intoxicated or due to a fight/altercation you started or due to your own intentional actions, your injuries are not covered. Additionally, workers’ compensation in California does not cover emotional harm, commonly known as “pain and suffering,” even if such harm is connected to a physical injury or work-related illness.

  • Do I need to tell my employer I was injured at work?

    Yes, you must report the injury to your employer within 30 days. If you fail to report the injury within this timeframe, your employer may have grounds to deny workers’ compensation coverage. If you were injured at work but more than 30 days have passed and you have not reported the injury, contact us right away to learn more about your potential options.

  • What can I do if my workers’ compensation claim was denied?

    If your claim was denied, it is possible to appeal the decision by filing an application for adjudication of claim. If you have received a claim denial letter, we strongly recommend that you work with an experienced lawyer at our firm. We can help you take on your employer and/or their insurance provider so that you can focus on getting the critical medical care you need.
