Workers in California understand that accidents can happen in the work environment. This is especially true for those working in an industry that is considered dangerous. Even when safety precautions are taken, this does not always protect an employee from being injured. Whether one works in an office, factory or construction site, when an injury occurs, a worker may have many questions.
An injured worker may wonder what they should do following a workplace accident. Generally, a worker should report the incident to his or her employer as soon as possible. But what if it is an injury that developed over time and is not due to a sudden accident? Filing for worker’s compensation is not an easy and straightforward process. Much documentation is required, and even when an employee completes all the necessary steps, he or she could still be denied these benefits.
