Work-related Injury and Workers Compensation
Workers and employees such as those in production occupations, material moving, and construction and extraction jobs are constantly exposed to risks of injury in the workplace or while performing their jobs. Scaffoldings may collapse, killing or severely injuring a construction worker. Chemical spills may burn plant workers or cause an employee to slip and fall, leading to fractures or head injury. For any of these situations, California law requires employers to obtain workers compensation insurance and to maintain safe workplaces for its workers.
An injured worker or employee must immediately notify their supervisor or employer of their injury within a certain period and obtain prompt treatment for their injuries. Depending on the circumstances of the work injury, the employee may be entitled to recover workers compensation without having to prove fault on the part of the employer.
Role of Workers Compensation Lawyer
Workers compensation, however, limits the total value of benefits that an injured worker can receive, posing serious challenges in achieving complete recovery from an injury. If you or a family member is injured in a work-related accident, it’s important to speak to an experienced workers compensation attorney about your situation.
In addition to helping you obtain medical care and temporary and permanent disability benefits under workers compensation insurance, your attorney can evaluate your case and determine whether you may be entitled to compensation against the party whose fault or negligence caused your accident.
