Maximizing Benefits for Injured Workers
In California, employers are required to provide employees with certain types of insurance coverage, including workers' compensation.
Workers' compensation offers the following to individuals who have been harmed at work:
- Financial support
- Wage replacement
- Medical benefits
In order to qualify for workers' compensation, it must be proven that you were injured while performing work-related duties. Negligence will not necessarily play a role in determining your eligibility.
Unfortunately, workers' compensation benefits may not be enough to pay for your medical expenses or your cut in wages. In these situations, we work hard to litigate on your behalf and determine whether negligence played a role in your accident. If we are able to prove someone else's negligence caused your damages, our skilled attorney can help you pursue financial compensation from the liable party for your losses.
Take Action Against Unsafe Practices in the Workplace
Under the protection of Occupational Safety and Health Administration laws, you cannot be retaliated against for saying something about an unsafe condition in your workplace. If you have been injured at work because of hazardous practices or employer negligence, now is the time to step forward. You have many protections under the law, and by taking action today, you can help make your workplace or the entire industry a much safer place.
