Pershing Square Law Firm’s team of EDD lawyers in Sacramento County, CA, is here to help you fight wrongful claims, such as unemployment denials, overpayment accusations, and more. In some cases, individuals aren’t aware of how possible wrongful claim denials are until one strikes them. For instance, unemployment benefits exist to help employees who lose their job unexpectedly and without doing anything wrong. Thus, if you’re eligible for unemployment, your experience collecting benefits should be straightforward.
However, California’s Employment Development Department (EDD) sometimes incorrectly denies eligible employees such benefits. Likewise, wrongful overpayment claims are particularly stressful because they involve you potentially paying back the money that you need to live comfortably. Of course, doing the research to fight such claims is daunting, especially for people without legal expertise. As a result, our EDD lawyers in Sacramento County, California, are here to support individuals who find themselves in the midst of wrongful EDD claims or denials with their expertise.
Another similar situation you may encounter with the EDD is short-term disability benefits denials. If an unexpected injury or illness unrelated to your job keeps you from work for extended periods, short-term disability can help you pay the bills for a certain time. Likewise, short-term disability applies to pregnancies that keep you out of the office. When you’re eligible for short-term disability assistance and receive a denial, it’s stressful — to say the least.
This is another one of the various reasons our EDD lawyers in Sacramento County, CA., help eligible individuals fight their wrongful claims. Beyond helping you prepare your case, we won’t collect a fee unless you win. And we’ll represent you at the appeal hearing, as well. After all, the appeal hearing is your time to make your argument, so it requires immense preparation and care. With our help, you have a chance of getting a bigger payout than expected and collecting it even faster than normal.
Remember, the EDD’s word isn’t exactly final. So, if you feel their benefits denial or overpayment claim against you is false, then you have a right to fight for your benefits. If you’re ready to start making your benefits case, you can reach out to Pershing Square Law Firm for your free consultation today with one of our EDD lawyers in Sacramento County.
