In California, employers are required by law to have worker’s compensation insurance. If you are an employee who is injured while at work, or injured due to a job-related accident, you are qualified to receive worker’s compensation benefits. In today’s economy, work-related injuries are a financial stress for both the employer and the employee.
Despite care and diligence, sometimes accidents do happen and that is why California employers are required to have worker’s compensation insurance. Though, sometimes worker’s compensation is difficult to collect due to paperwork and other legalities. It is even more difficult if you, the injured employee cannot substantiate the cause of the injury.
California labor laws are in place to protect the rights of employees. If you or someone you love has been injured at work, you can seek compensation for your injuries. Our work injury lawyers can help you receive worker’s compensation for these and other workplace injuries:
- Slips and falls
- Chemical burns
- Faulty equipment
- Safety regulations
- Carelessness of fellow employees
- Carelessness of supervisors
- Poor or inadequate training for the job
A work injury lawyer should be consulted immediately after a work-related injury. Do not delay because our attorneys can help you get compensation promptly and fairly. Without the help of a knowledgeable attorney, you may get the minimum compensation which may cover immediate losses but do not consider long-term distress. Insurance companies are pleased to receive your monthly payments, but they may not be so pleased when it comes to paying you for workplace injuries. Our lawyers will work with you to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve for short-term and long-term effects of your workplace injury.
