Even in the safest of workplaces, there is the possibility of an accident. As such, employers in California and across the country are required to provide workers’ compensation insurance coverage to help employees in the event that they suffer workplace injuries. Unfortunately, injured workers are often unsure of their rights. As such, many turn to The Law Office of Gary C. Nelson for guidance.
Our attorneys have decades of experience helping workers seek fair treatment following an injury at work. Despite knowing that their employers are required to provide this insurance coverage, many injured workers are unsure of what to do or to what they are entitled. Our experienced team is here to help.
If you are injured at work, you cannot be fired by your employer as a result of your injuries. Additionally, you have the right to adequate medical care. If you are dissatisfied with the health care provider recommended by your employer because you feel the assessments are inaccurate or care is inadequate, you can choose a different provider. Depending on the nature of your injuries, you may also be entitled to compensation for lost wages as well as the costs of additional training.
For many people recovering from workplace injuries in California, the compensation process can seem daunting. Often, the system is complicated. Fortunately, our attorneys are knowledgeable of state laws and can help victims of such accidents seek fair compensation. We can also help identify any third parties who may be responsible for injuries and take action to pursue full financial accountability from them.
