What Is Workers’ Compensation?
The California Division of Workers’ Compensation provides medical care, lost wages and other compensation to workers injured while on the job. Serious illnesses or injuries that occur from the performance of your job might impact your life for years. That’s why workers’ compensation is so important. In order to qualify in California, you don’t have to prove fault or negligence to receive compensation. However, injured workers give up in return their right to file a personal injury suit against the employer.

The Work Injury Lawyers in Ontario Can Handle Your Case
In many cases, work-related injuries happen while an employee is acting within the scope of their job. Unsafe working environments and negligence can lead to an injury. In California, while you are performing your job duties as intended and you suffer an injury, you have certain protections. Some accidents occur more than others, and they have different treatments and bills associated with them. For example, some accidents require surgery or hospitalization that come with expensive hospital bills. Other accidents lead to permanent disability or disfigurement that leaves you unable to perform your job duties as you once did.
Common Workplace Accidents in California Include:
- struck by objects
- transportation accidents
- chemical exposures
- getting caught between objects/equipment
- equipment malfunction
What Workers’ Compensation Damages are Available in California?
When you’re injured at work, it’s important to know what benefits are available to you. Workers’ compensation programs in California offer reimbursement of medical expenses and disability or death benefits. You may be eligible for one benefit but not others, so it’s important that you meet the minimum requirement for each. It’s also important to know how long these benefits last- some cover up until your injury healed, while others must be extended if certain conditions arise from your injury.
Do I Need an Ontario Workers’ Comp Lawyer?
Many times, injured workers don’t know that they have the right to choose their medical care provider. Employers and insurance companies try to offer the cheapest options, even if those options aren’t the best in terms of your care.
Work injuries can have a devastating effect on your life, and the quality of care you receive for your injuries is crucial. An experienced Ontario workers’ compensation lawyer is essential in getting you the compensation you need to make your post-injury life easier.
