Seeking Compensation for a Fresno Work Injury Claim

In California, you can pursue payment for your medical bills, lost wages, and other damages that result from a work injury in two ways: workers’ compensation or a third-party lawsuit. The choice depends primarily on who is responsible for the incident.

Worker’s Compensation

All California employers must provide workers’ compensation insurance, even if they only have one employee. This insurance will pay for your medical treatments, partial wages while you recover, and disability benefits while you cannot work. Your family may even be eligible to receive survivor benefits if you pass away from the injury.

Filing and having a claim approved is more complicated than you may expect. Working with the worker’s compensation attorneys at Aegis Law can help you avoid common mistakes that result in a delay or denial of your claim.

Third-Party Lawsuits

Workers’ compensation protects employers from lawsuits, but if you were injured due to the negligence of a third party, you could file a lawsuit against them. Visitors, contractors, vendors, security personnel, or other individuals could be responsible for your work injury. Your attorney will investigate the circumstances and gather evidence to prove liability.

With a lawsuit, you have the opportunity to recover greater financial relief. You can claim medical bills and lost pay for workers’ comp, but you can request the full amount of lost income in a lawsuit. In addition, you can include non-economic damages such as your pain and suffering, mental anguish, anxiety, loss of enjoyment of life, and emotional distress.

In some cases, you might be able to file a lawsuit and still receive workers’ comp benefits. Your Aegis Law work injury lawyer can advise you on any particular circumstances that apply to your case.
