California Workers' Compensation Lawyers
You pay nothing unless we win your case!
Workers' Compensation Law covers injured workers that are injured during their employment. As a worker, you are entitled to certain benefits for injuries suffered while you were working. Medical treatment, paid time off from work to recover from your injuries, restrictions on your job duties if you are unable to perform your regular duties, permanent disability payment, and future medical expenses are among the benefits that you could be entitled to.
But, your employer and/or its insurance company may make obtaining your benefits difficult. If you try to go up against them on your own, chances are that you will not be able to recover what you might be entitled to.
Sometimes, employers fire employees when they report an injury. This is illegal. Your employer could be subject to certain penalties if they fire you for reporting an injury. Usually, they try to cover-up their illegal and wrongful conduct by saying things like "we don't have anymore work for you." Often, this is a plain lie. The law protects you if your employer fires you for reporting an injury or filing a lawsuit for your injuries.
Most of the laws dealing with workplace injuries are contained in the California Labor Code. The California Labor Code contains a wealth of information that can often be confusing. Even some of the attorneys practicing Workers' Compensation Law do not understand or know all of the intricacies of the California Labor Code.
As with most other fields of law, Workers' Compensation cases often result in a settlement where the injured worker receives thousands or millions of dollars. Recovering such amounts depends mainly on the extent of the injuries involved. Whether an injury is temporary or permanent also affects the amount of recovery.
