Helping you recover workers' compensation for injuries

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.

What should workers do to get workers' compensation?

There is no question that a work-related injury or an injury suffered while on the job can be damaging to a California resident's life. Aside from the physical pain that they may experience as a result of their harm, they may also suffer financial loss, as they take time off from work to recover and heal. Workplace accidents and injuries should not happen when workers have the proper resources from their employers, and when these preventable forms of loss occur, it is often the responsibility of employers to make their employees whole.

A denied workers' comp claim need not be the end of the story

Being injured at work is sometimes a minor affair. However, if a workplace injury is severe enough to keep a person in California from being able to work for an extended period, then that person might want to apply for workers' compensation benefits. These benefits can be the financial safety net a worker needs to make ends meet until they can return to work.

Attorneys advise those filing workers' compensation claims

No one walks out their door in the morning thinking this is the day they'll be injured at work. However, workplace injuries take place all the time. Some of these injuries are minor, requiring a little first aid, but nothing else. However, other injuries are more serious, necessitating extensive medical care and making it so that the worker must recover at home for a certain amount of time before being able to return to work. And, in some cases, a workplace injury can result in permanent disability.

Most people in California can appreciate putting in a hard day's work. This may be particularly true for those who work in dangerous occupations. Unfortunately, it is not unknown for a worker to be injured or even killed while performing their work duties. As a result, their family members are left grapping with the loss they have suffered.

People can appreciate that construction work can be dangerous. However, that makes it all the more important for employers in the construction industry not to cut corners, especially when it comes to worker safety. Should they fail to follow applicable safety rules, it could lead to disaster.

California sees uptick in cumulative trauma claims

When a person thinks of workplace injuries, they may picture a worker suffering an injury based on a one-time incident, such as straining to lift something heavy or falling off a ladder. However, some injuries build up over time simply by performing normal workplace duties. Known as cumulative trauma injuries, these injuries are increasingly giving rise to workers' compensation claims.

California has a variety of workers' compensation benefits

While some occupations are inherently more dangerous than others, the fact of the matter is that just about anyone in California can be injured or made ill in the course of performing their job duties. When this happens, they may be unable to work for a period of time. In serious cases, a person might be permanently injured. Being unable to work can cause additional stress during what is already a difficult time. Fortunately, there are several types of workers' compensation benefits Californians can pursue, in order to help cope with the expenses related to their illness or injury.
