I Was Injured At Work

 

I WAS INJURED AT WORK – My doctor says I can’t work right now, so how do I get paid? This is a common question asked by many victims of workplace accidents and injuries. Many of America’s workplaces are incredibly dangerous and injuries are a common occurrence.  According to the California Department of Industrial Relations, one in twenty five workers will suffer a work-related nonfatal injury every single year.    Injured At Work – Consult With An Attorney

Many workplace injuries are minor, resulting in scrapes, bruises, and even paper cuts. However, workplace injuries can also be much more serious problems. In the worst situations, workplace injuries can result in hospitalization and possibly death. Most workers who need to skip work for medical reasons have difficulty making ends meet. If you or a loved one finds yourself injured at work without the ability to bring in an income during recovery, you should consult with a workers’ compensation attorney about your options.   Injured At Work – Consult With An Attorney

What Is Workers’ Compensation?

Workers’ compensation is a insurance claims process for work related injuries that often involves the insurance company, employer, defense attorney, applicant attorney and of course the court system.  Before workers’ compensation laws came into existence, injured workers had to sue their employers for any work-related injuries that they believed were the fault of the employer. This court-focused system often resulted in unequal outcomes and left many employees without the ability to collect anything until after a lengthy court battle. The workers’ compensation system made it easier for injured employees to pursue job site injury claims by making it easier to file a claim with a separate independent workers’ compensation administrative court rather than a court of law.    Injured At Work – Consult With An Attorney

Do I Qualify for Workers’ Compensation If I Was Injured At Work?

To qualify to receive workers’ compensation benefits, an employee must have been injured on the job site while performing a work-related activity, also known as AOE/COE. Unlike in the court system, worker’s compensation victims do not need to prove that the injury was the fault of the employer. Rather, the injured employee needs to prove that the injury occurred on the job while performing your work duties or related work duties.  Injuries that either do not occur on the job site or occur while the injured employee is not performing a work-related activity are generally non-compensable under the workers’ compensation system.  Your should always consult with a workers’ compensation attorney about the specific facts of your case.       Injured At Work – Consult With An Attorney 

What about Medical Bills and Temporary Disability Payments / Benefits If I Was Injured At Work?

The amount of money that you can receive from the workers’ compensation system will depend on many different factors. Most importantly, the cost of any medical bills are generally paid by the insurance company or employer in the workers’ compensation system.  Additionally, you are entitled to temporary disability benefits, two-thirds (2/3) of your salary for the hours of work missed due to the injury.      Injured At Work – Consult With An Attorney

If you have been injured at work, you have a right to workers’ compensation benefits as provided under California law. It is important that you begin plans to file a workers’ compensation claim as soon as possible so that you meet California’s workers’ compensation filing deadline and so that you can preserve evidence of your injury.
