What is Workers Compensation?
Workers Compensation is a fund that was set up using employer taxes for the benefit of employees that might be injured, involved in an accident or fatally injured. In case of death, the families of the deceased can benefit from this fund as well.
A workers compensation claim results from any injury one might sustain while on the job or under the control of their employer. There are a number of injuries that can occur in the workplace. Some of them involve outright and common injuries, such as a slip and fall, broken bones or an injury to a limb using a piece of equipment. But there are many other types of injuries which are not necessarily as clear cut as these, which are still work-related. A California workers compensation attorney can guide you through the process of filing a claim and determining whether or not you are entitled to benefits through the workers’ compensation system. For instance, there is a “going and coming” rule governing work-related injuries. You may have been on your way to work and gotten injured, yet under very specific rules, you may qualify to have this treated as a workers compensation injury. Only an experienced lawyer will be able to determine whether your particular case is work-related or not. Depending on the nature of the accident, you might be left injured, disabled, or in great amounts of pain for a long period of time. You deserve to be reimbursed for any medical bills, lost time from work and possibly for any pain and/or suffering you might have experienced.
