Helping Those In The Hospitality Industry Get Workers’ Comp Benefits
California has a large hospitality industry that includes hotels, wineries, restaurants, and entertainment venues. However, employers in this industry are not always hospitable to workers who suffer injuries on the job. If you work in the hospitality industry and you have run into difficulties filing a workers’ compensation claim, Meechan Rosenthal & Karpilow PC can help you.
Our board-certified workers’ compensation attorneys have decades of experience in total helping people get the benefits they need. We have helped thousands of people in Sonoma County, Mendocino County, Humboldt County, and the surrounding region get the fair compensation they deserve.
Understanding And Compassionate Help For Hospitality Workers
People who do not work in hospitality are often shocked by how physically intense it is. Many hospitality workers are on their feet all day serving customers, carrying things, or cleaning. These workplace activities can result in serious injuries such as:
- Herniated or bulging discs
- Sprains and strains
- Other back injuries
- Neck injuries
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Slip-and-falls or trip-and-falls
- Chronic pain
In our practice, we have handled claims involving nearly every injury imaginable. Whether you are filing your initial claim or you need to file an appeal for a denied claim, we can assist and guide you. If you do not have permanent legal status and are afraid of removal, you can trust our lawyers to protect you.
Has Your Employer Misclassified You?
Many hospitality employers misclassify their employees as independent contractors. This way, they can avoid paying for benefits such as workers’ comp coverage. Our lawyers can evaluate your work situation to learn whether you are in the correct classification. If not, we know how to hold your employer accountable and get them to correctly identify you as an employee.
