Helping Injured Workers Obtain the Benefits to Which they are Entitled
Workplace accidents are one of the most common causes of serious injury in the United States, and each year thousands of individuals develop illnesses or medical conditions that are a direct result of their working environment. Fortunately, California’s workers’ compensation program provides injured employees with benefits regardless of fault. It’s important to note, however, that workers’ compensation insurers do everything they can to minimize the benefits they pay, so it’s highly advisable for injured workers to retain a workers' compensation attorney to represent them throughout the claims process.
Workers’ Compensation Provides a Variety of Benefits
Workers’ compensation is a no-fault insurance program that is intended to ensure that injured workers are not left without any help in the event that they are injured at work. It provides a variety of benefits, including:
As an injured employee, it’s critical to remember that workers’ compensation insurers are for-profit companies that make their money by collecting more in premiums than they pay out in benefits. For this reason, they will take any opportunity they have to pay you as little as possible or even deny your claim completely. They will seize on any mistakes you make during the claims process and try to keep the benefits to which you are legally entitled from you. Fortunately, by retaining an experienced attorney, you can ensure that your rights are protected and that you get the benefits you need as quickly as possible.
