Those who are employed in industrial jobs face an inherently higher risk of injuries or work-related illnesses. Despite the potential hazards, these workers have rights that must be protected when workplace injuries occur. After an on-the-job accident, it is critical to work with a lawyer who is experienced in workers’ rights and workers’ compensation benefits in California.
Many challenges frequently follow a work accident, including physical difficulties and financial struggles. Injured employees may not be able to work, leaving the family feeling the strain of lost wages. After a serious injury, a victim may be unable to work for an extended amount of time, perhaps even permanently unable to return to the same job. When this happens, industrial workers may be entitled to short-term disability or long-term benefits.
Industrial workers face risks that include falls, malfunctioning equipment, trench collapses, heavy equipment accidents and more. Additionally, hazardous or toxic environments can lead to the contraction of a serious illness. While workers focus on recovery, we provide support for families who need a full explanation of their legal rights regarding workers’ compensation benefits.
No amount of compensation can undo the damage that has been caused by workplace injuries. However, it can help a family deal with the detrimental financial impact of a workplace accident. Instead of seeking workers’ compensation benefits alone, a family can turn to our experienced California team for a full explanation of how we can protect their rights and increase their chance of a successful claim. If you are an industrial worker and have been injured at work, we are ready to help you.
