When You Have Been Injured At Work
After you have been injured at work, it's important to know that you have rights. Under California and federal law, your employer can not fire you for reporting an accident or an unsafe condition in the workplace.
Just as important, you may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits after you have been injured or made ill while at work. Also known as workers' comp benefits, these payments are designed to help you pay for medical care, rehabilitative costs and lost wages while you are recovering from an injury or illness.
Legal Help For Injured Workers
California's workers' compensation laws provide that after any work injuries, workers should file a claim for their benefits. Employers are required to carry workers' compensation insurance, and the insurance company should pay the benefits.
Unfortunately, it isn't always easy to recover the full amount you deserve after you are injured at work. Often, employers or their insurance companies fail to give you the full amount you deserve. At times like these, it's important to have the help of an attorney who can represent you.
