Understanding Workers Compensation

The employment law attorneys at Lawyers for Justice, PC have a strong track record of delivering incredible results for clients. Our employment lawyers not only help clients with work-related issues like wage and hour claims, but also for worker’s compensation issues that may arise on the job.

If you are an employee that has been injured at work during the course of your shift, you may be entitled to monetary compensation. You may also be entitled to medical benefits through workers’ compensation. Workers’ compensation – which is sometimes shortened to “workers comp” – is a claim that’s filed if an injury has occurred in the workplace where an employee can collect a monetary award to compensate for the sustained injury.

The employment attorneys at Lawyers for Justice, PC have handled hundreds of cases for California workers and have recovered millions of dollars.

There are many different factors as to why an employee would need to file a worker’s compensation claim, and some of them could include:

Unsafe work conditions – maybe there was a slippery floor that caused an employee to stumble or fall and hurt themselves.

Head and brain injuries – perhaps an employee hit their head while on the job and sustained an internal or external injury.

Hazardous materials exposure – some employees work with chemicals, or other hazardous materials, and exposure to such can cause bodily harm.

Hearing and vision loss – sometimes during the course of a worker’s shift, they could experience a traumatic event that causes them to permanently – or temporarily – lose their sight or hearing.

Amputations – was there a serious situation that caused you or someone you work with to have to have an appendage amputated?

Chronic illness or cancer – or perhaps there was a situation where a work environment caused an employee to contract a chronic illness.
