So what is workers compensation?

Workers compensation is insurance that your company, corporation, or place of work typically has in order to cover their employees if they should have an accident that results in physical injury. This insurance is meant to be helpful to employees. However, like most insurances, money that goes into compensation is heavily regulated. There are particular rules that you, as an injured employee, need to follow in order to get compensation. Just because you follow all the rules doesn’t mean that your employer or company is following the rules. This is why it is so important to high workers compensation lawyer to help ensure that not only are you doing all you can but that your employer and company are doing the right thing too.

Here are some issues to be aware of as we start your claim:

  1. Workers Compensation is easier to claim if you have a paper trail. Make sure that you tell the proper people about the incident as soon as it happens.
  2. The insurance company and workers are not your friends. They will report whatever information is necessary to make sure that you are covered to the least amount. They work for the employer, not for you.
  3. In that state of California, your employer is not allowed “to fire, threaten to fire or discriminate against you just because you intend to file, or have filed, a workers compensation claim”.
  4. If you are at a job that does not have workers compensation there are other avenues to seek compensation like the Uninsured Employers Benefits Trust Fund.
  5. If you are a private contractor you can still file a claim if you suffer a work related injury.
