A risk of injury is an inherent characteristic of many jobs. In other roles, injuries may not be common, but are still a possibility. To protect employees from the losses caused by injuries, the workers’ compensation system is in place. Through a workers’ compensation claim, you can receive coverage for your injury-related damages.

Although workers’ compensation is there to protect you, you should not underestimate the difficulty of the process or assume that you will be guaranteed benefits. Navigating the workers’ compensation system is complex and requires the assistance of a legal professional. At Workers' Compensation Lawyer, Inc., our workers’ compensation attorneys in Orange are dedicated to helping injury victims recover the benefits they deserve.

Workers’ Compensation FAQ

  • What if I was partially at fault for my own work injury?

    A work injury victim may be partially at fault for their own injuries if they were negligent. Workers’ compensation is a no-fault system, so liability generally does not affect a person’s ability to receive benefits. Workers are only barred from receiving benefits if the negligence they exhibited was considered severe.

  • What if my employer does not have workers’ compensation insurance?

    Most employers are required to have a workers’ compensation plan in place. If your employer is not insured, you may be able to recover benefits by filing a claim with the state’s workers’ compensation board. Or, you may be able to pursue legal action against your employer.

  • What should you do after you are injured on the job?

    Following a work injury, your top priority should be getting medical treatment. Once you receive care, you should report your injury to your employer as soon as possible. Then, contact our law office. We will handle your case, guide you through the claims process, and recover compensation for you.

Workers’ Compensation Benefits

Through a workers’ compensation claim, you can receive compensation for the damages caused by your occupational injury. Mostly, your workers’ compensation benefits will cover your medical expenses. Typically, work injury victims must visit a doctor who is approved by their employer and the workers’ compensation insurance company so all of their medical expenses are covered.

Lost wages are another significant damage caused by a work injury. Workers’ compensation also serves as a source of income for people who are unable to work while recovering from their injuries.

A work injury can result in expenses other than medical bills and lost wages. For example, an injury victim may need transportation to and from medical appointments. It may be possible for a work injury victim to receive compensation for these additional expenses as well. Non-economic damages are not covered by workers’ compensation benefits.
