California Workers’ Compensation Attorneys
You go to work to earn a living and never expect that an injury at work could cause you to lose wages and endure painful and lasting injuries. In California, employees who are injured while working in the scope of their employment are entitled to compensation from their employer for their injuries. Employers are required by law to have workers’ compensation insurance.
Whether you work as a police officer or an office clerk, you may face dangers at work that you don’t expect. Even sedentary office workers can face risk of physical injury at work by files falling on them, tripping on unsafe flooring conditions at work, or developing a chronic condition like carpal tunnel as a result of performing a repeated task at work that eventually caused the injury.
In addition to receiving compensation from their employer for medical bills incurred for their treatment relating to a work injury, injured workers may also be entitled to lost wages, future medical bills, and compensation for any degree of permanent disability that was caused by the work accident.
It can sometimes be intimidating to approach your employer about a work injury, however, as an injured worker in California, you have many legal rights that you must be aware of. Your employer is not permitted to take any adverse action against you as a result of you filing a workers’ compensation claim against them.
Do not face your employer and their insurance company alone. If you have been injured at work and want to learn more information about whether you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and other damages, contact the workers’ compensation attorneys at Jewels J. Jin, Esq., APC. We will help you determine the strength and valuation of your claim.
