Workers Compensation Attorney Serving Los Angeles, CA, Riverside, & San Bernadino County Areas
It’s a sad reality that some employers knowingly or unknowingly subject their employees to unsafe working conditions. Unfortunately, when this happens, workers can suffer in more ways than one. From life-altering injuries that demand ongoing medical treatment to lost wages, workplace accidents can hurt employees physically, financially, and emotionally.
When Injury Strikes
Many injuries that happen at work are simple accidents. In these cases, you may be able to obtain workers compensation to alleviate some of the financial stress after you’ve been harmed. However, in limited circumstances, if you were injured because your employer knowingly exposed you to unsafe conditions or failed to take safety measures, you may be allowed to seek compensation by filing a lawsuit.
Exploring Your Rights
1.) Medical care. This covers doctor visits, tests, medication, treatment services and necessary travel costs related to care.
2.) Temporary disability benefits. This covers any lost wages incurred during recovery.
3.) Permanent disability benefits. These benefits cover injured workers who do not recover and are unable to return to work.
4.) Job displacement benefits. This supplemental voucher helps pay for retraining if a worker is unable to qualify for permanent disability and unable to return to their old job.
5.) Death benefits. This benefit distributes payments to an injured worker’s spouse or dependents if they pass away due to job-related illness or injury.
After a workplace accident, you may feel as if you’re alone and without options. Don’t let these negative feelings consume you. Instead, empower yourself by contacting the Law Offices Of Raymond Perez for your initial consultation.
Workers’ Comp. Law requires all employers with at least one employee to have California Workers Compensation Benefits insurance. This includes all temporary employees and corporate officers of the company. The law extends to out-of-state employers as well, who may have employees that regularly work in California. It covers both one-time events (e.g., back injuries, burns, accidents in company vehicles), repeated exposure events (e.g., hearing loss due to constant noise, injuries due to repeated motions) and certain psychological (stress-related) injuries caused by the job.
