Disability & Workers’ Comp Attorneys in Orange County
Making Sure Injured Employees Receive the Compensation They Need
It is important that people who are unable to work receive the support they need to live comfortably and pay for medical expenses. Workers’ compensation and disability benefits were created for this reason. If you have been injured on the job or rendered disabled by an accident, you are entitled to compensation. Unfortunately, obtaining the benefits you need is not always easy. At Aegis Law Firm, our dedicated Orange County disability benefits lawyers fight aggressively on behalf of employees who have been injured on the job.
How Is Workers’ Comp Different from Disability Benefits?
Workers’ comp is provided to employees who have been injured in a work-related accident. Compensation is provided by your employer’s insurance provider. Most employers in California are required to carry workers’ comp insurance.
Workers’ comp should cover your injuries and provide income to make up for lost wages from time off work. It is not meant to serve as a permanent source of income for temporary injuries.
If your employer or the insurance company is making it difficult to obtain your benefits, then the state may provide you with disability benefits until the issue is resolved. However, if you have a permanent disability, you could be entitled to lifetime benefits from workers’ comp.
You must meet the following criteria to obtain permanent disability benefits from workers’ comp:
- Your disability was caused by work-related activities or an accident
- Your employer is covered by worker’s comp insurance
- You filed a workers’ comp claim before the deadline
