Employees are entitled to Workers' Compensation benefits for workplace injuries — no matter who is at fault

 

 

Even if you contributed to the conditions that led to a workplace accident, you as an employee are entitled to Workers’ Compensation benefits for any accidental injuries that occur on-the-job or during the course of employment. The Workers' Compensation system in California is a no-fault system that involves a trade-off. Employers are required to carry insurance to compensate sick or injured workers who sustain injuries on the job. In exchange, the employee promises not to sue the employer directly and to instead sue the insurance company for injuries occurring on the job.

 

The problem with this system is that employees are sometimes unfamiliar with the nuances of Workers' Compensation law and simply give up hope if their initial application for benefits has been denied. At the law offices of William A. Herreras, Attorney at Law, we are here to help you understand the law and get the disability benefits to which you are entitled so that you can afford the necessary medical treatment as well as various related expenses. If you have been injured at work, you may be entitled to compensation for the following:

 

 

  • Costs of medical care
  • Temporary disability benefits
  • Permanent disability benefits
  • Supplemental job displacement benefits
  • Vocational rehabilitation
  • Death benefits
