Our team of EDD lawyers in Sacramento County, California, 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 should be straightforward.
However, the EDD sometimes denies eligible employees such benefits. Likewise, wrongful overpayment claims are particularly stressful because they involve you potentially paying back the money. Of course, doing the research to fight such claims is daunting, especially for novices. 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.
Another similar situation 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, California, help eligible individuals fight their wrongful claims. Beyond helping you prepare your case, we’ll represent you at the appeal hearing. After all, the appeal hearing is your time to make your argument, so it requires immense preparation and care. 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 for your free consultation today.
