Workers' compensation is the nation's first social insurance program that has been adopted by most states, including California. You are entitled to receive due compensation and medical attention for your injuries or illnesses that are a result of your work (regardless of who is at fault). However, you are generally prevented from suing your employer for your injuries with certain exceptions.
However, issues can arise concerning the details of your injury, risking your eligibility for workers' compensation benefits. It is extremely important that you seek help from a skilled and determined lawyer from our firm for qualified legal advice and options.
In workers' compensation, it is the employer's duty to perform certain tasks when faced with an injured employee. First and foremost, immediate emergency medical aid is required if you have sustained a workplace injury. Along with that, you are able to receive further medical attention to cure or relieve the effects of the work injury. The employer's failure to maintain workers' compensation insurance coverage can bring about fines and criminal prosecution.
