It is critical to establish a connection between your injury and a work-related cause in case it becomes more severe. Follow these steps to ensure your rights are protected:
You have two main avenues for seeking compensation for your injuries:
California law requires that all employers carry workers’ compensation insurance coverage for their employees. This coverage pays for your medical care and partial wages while you are out of work. It also provides support if you are permanently disabled and pays survivor benefits to your family if you die.
Our worker’s compensation attorneys can ensure your application is filed correctly and on time and negotiate with the insurance company for you.
In situations where a third party hurt you, you may have the option of filing a lawsuit to recover compensation. Contractors, vendors, visitors, and other parties can cause or contribute to a work-related injury and be held accountable for your damages.
A skilled attorney can investigate to determine who is liable and demonstrate how they were negligent. Your lawyer can clarify your options during your initial consultation.
When you are hurt at work and cannot do your job, even for a little while, you are likely afraid of the bills piling up while you are recovering. Workers’ compensation or a lawsuit can address those concerns. However, you may worry that your employer will retaliate against you because you filed for workers’ compensation.
In California, it is illegal for companies to take revenge by cutting your hours, firing you, or doing anything intended to punish you for using the coverage you deserve. This is when the skilled work injury attorneys of Aegis Law in Long Beach, CA, can fight for you. We hold big companies accountable for their actions against their employees, ensuring you do not have to face them alone.
The process of filing a workers’ compensation claim or lawsuit after you have been hurt in a work-related accident can be overwhelming. You need to concentrate on getting better, and you want the strongest advocate in your corner to ensure you get the benefits and compensation you deserve.
