Alan Cyrlin has decades of experience as a workers compensation lawyer. During this time, he has helped countless workers throughout California obtain the job protection and compensation they’re legally entitled to. This includes employees of many different industries and businesses, including construction workers, office employees, assembly-line workers, drivers, etc.
Workers’ compensation applies to individuals who are injured on the job. There are many kinds of injuries that can occur at your workplace:
- Chemical spills/burns
- Car accidents
- Back and knee injuries
- Chronic health conditions caused by work hazards
- Repetitive joint stress injuries
- Hearing damage
If you’ve sustained a work-related injury, you’re entitled to lost wages, medical care, and other benefits that are paid by your employer.
California has a simplified “no-fault” system for worker’s compensation, meaning that you don’t need to prove that your employer was responsible. To qualify for these benefits, however, you do need legal assistance. The state of California requires injured workers to file a legal claim within a certain timeframe. The extensive experience of Mr. Cyrlin can help you receive benefits quickly.
Public Pension and Disability Claims
Another one of Mr. Cyrlin’s specialties is the area of public pensions and workplace disability claims. As a respected public pension lawyer, Mr. Cyrlin has provided expert advice to injured workers for over 20 years. His knowledge in this field makes a huge difference for clients since applications for disability have requirements that are complex and detailed.
With an expert by your side, you know exactly what documents to obtain, what claims to file, and what proof to submit. Depending on the severity of your workplace-related injury, you may qualify for temporary disability coverage or permanent disability assistance. Permanent disability provides long-term payments designed to make up for the loss of your future earnings in your profession.
California has a number of legal requirements that can make applying for and getting approved for temporary or permanent disability a challenge for someone trying to fill out the forms alone. You need things such as medical documentation, physicians’ statements, and other types of proof. Contact a public pension lawyer such as Mr. Cyrlin before starting this type of litigation. This way, you avoid so many common mistakes that lead to rejected applications.
Social Security Disability
If you have been injured at work, you should also speak with Mr. Cyrlin about social security disability programs. At The Law Offices of Edward J. Singer, we have extensive knowledge of this type of government-backed worker assistance. We fight for you to ensure you receive all of the compensation you deserve, which often includes both employer compensation and federal disability payments.
Social Security Disability Insurance provides benefits to workers who are considered disabled or have been unable to work for at least one year due to an injury. Benefits apply to the injured individual and family members.
Working with an experienced social security disability lawyer is very important when submitting an application for SSDI. This is because many government agencies summarily reject applications. In other words, they may not even look at the information before rejecting your application. They hope that most people will simply give up and forget about it. With an expert attorney, you can file an appeal if needed to get a rejected claim approved.
Helping People Change Their Lives for the Better
The thought of suffering a life-changing workplace injury or permanent disability isn’t something most people like to think about. Unfortunately, these accidents are relatively common. According to the Social Security Administration, workers of the age of 20 have a 25% chance of becoming disabled prior to retirement. That means one out of every four workers in California may be severely affected by occupational hazards, not including lesser injuries that can make you miss several months of work.
These situations can lead to emotional distress as providers wonder how they will be able to take care of their families. Long-term disabilities affect the injured person, their children, and their caregivers.
Receiving payments from workers’ compensation, public pensions, or SSDI makes life easier. That way, you or your spouse can hire someone to help out around the home, provide medical treatment, and ensure that your children receive the best education.
