California Workers’ Compensation Attorneys Deliver Results
Recovering millions for injured workers for more than 55 years combined
Workers’ compensation law is designed to reimburse individuals for medical expenses and lost wages caused by injuries sustained or worsened while working on the job. Workplace injuries may creep up over a period of time because of a repetitive motion like typing or they may result from a one-time event such as falling or being struck by a falling object. The Law Office of Bryman & Apelian A Professional Corporation has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for injured employees in Los Angeles County and throughout the state of California.
What you need to know about California workers’ compensation law
Generally, workers’ compensation does not include payments for emotional pain and suffering. Also, punitive damages are excluded — that means the court cannot grant a financial victory for the sole purpose of punishing your boss. It is important to act quickly after you discover a work-related injury. In California, you must report your injury to your employer within 30 days or else you may forfeit your chance to collect compensation. After an injury is reported, your employer is required to provide competent medical care. An individual does not need to be a legal resident of the United States to receive most workers’ compensation benefits.
Examples of workplace injuries requiring compensation
Every workplace has its own inherent challenges. Whether you engage in hard, physical labor at a construction site or you spend eight hours a day sitting at a computer or holding a phone, your employer may be liable for your workplace injury. Examples of workplace injuries that generally require compensation are:
- Head or back injuries — Your employer is responsible for any injury you sustain while on the job. This includes a head or back injury from a car accident if you were running an errand for your boss.
- Scars from burns — Chemical and other burns occur in factories and labs all over the world. If you suffered a burn injury at work and now you have a scar, you may be entitled to monetary reimbursement for your medical treatments and lost wages.
- Severe injuries — A serious work-related injury may leave an employee partially or totally paralyzed for life. If you or a loved one suffered a severe injury on the job, your boss may be obligated to pay for all future medical care, including equipment, medication and personnel.
If you had a preexisting medical condition that worsened because of your job, you may be able to collect payments to cover any medical expenses related to the injury. Be sure to keep all receipts and healthcare documentation to show your California workers’ compensation lawyer.
