If an employee gets injured at work, per California Compensation Laws, the law requires the employer or its insurance carrier to pay for injured employee's benefits.
Per Statute, workers' compensation basic benefits may include:
- medical care for recovery from work related injury
- disability benefits (temporary or permanent)
- voucher/job displacement benefits
- death benefits
Firm fights to obtain the full range of workers' compensation benefits for employees who suffer work related injuries. These injuries may include on-the-job injuries due to a specific event and injuries that occur over time due to repetitive physical stress of job requirements such as carpal tunnel syndrome and lower back problems. Additional injuries may also include work related illness such as heart disease, stress, anxiety, or exposure to toxic chemicals or fumes.
If you are injured at work or exposed to toxic chemicals or fumes, you may be entitled for temporary or permanent disability benefits while you are recovering from your injury. If you are seriously injured at work and your employer or its insurance company is denying you of your workers' compensation benefits, we can help. We offer a free consultation to advise you of your rights you are entitled to.
