A workplace accident can bring upheaval to a California workers’ life, as well as life for the family. Even a minor on-the-job injury can compromise a person’s ability to work, making it hard to maintain a steady income stream. After an accident at work, a victim should take care to protect his or her rights by seeking a full recovery, both physically and financially.
Every California worker has the right to a full recovery after an on-the-job accident. Recovery is achieved by seeking needed medical treatment as soon as possible after suffering an injury. Sometimes, a worker may require surgery, rehabilitation or other medical care. Medical bills, as well as lost wages from missed work, can be financially cumbersome.
While every injured worker has the right to file a workers’ compensation claim after a work accident, it is a complex process. It can be difficult to get needed benefits, but we know the California system and the challenges that injured workers face. We proactively protect workers’ rights by assisting with the entire workers’ compensation process, from the initial claim to any necessary appeals.
If you suffered an on-the-job injury, you have the right to a full recovery from your injuries, as well as any needed medical care. You could also recover lost wages associated with any time missed from work. You may be able to get vocational retraining if you are unable to return to the same job as before the accident.
