Things you may not have known about workers’ compensation

If you have been injured in a workplace accident in California, you may have some questions about workers’ compensation. While most people know that the program is designed to help those who are injured at their place of employment, there are many common misunderstandings about who is eligible for help and what kind of assistance can be offered. We at Koszdin, Fields, Sherry and Katz can not only help you apply for workers’ compensation and fight denied applications, we can also educate you on little-known facts and confusing topics.

Reasonable and appropriate treatment for your workplace injury

One of the purposes of California’s workers’ compensation insurance requirement is to ensure that you receive the medical care you need after a workplace injury. Your employer could purchase a policy through a company, or it could be self-insured, but going without and failing to provide you with resources for treatment is against the law. The legal team at Koszdin, Fields, Sherry & Katz understands the medical benefits workers are entitled to, and how to ensure that these are not denied.

Know your health care rights for workers' compensation

Being injured at work comes with a lot of unknowns. You don't know how bad the injury is, how long you will have to remain off work, or what the healing process will entail. This puts you into a bit of a bind because you can't get your bills paid or get the medical care that you need with the mere hope that you will eventually be able to work again.

Workers trapped in wet concrete after collapse

Construction workers in California know that theirs is a highly regulated industry when it comes to safety on the job site. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration outlines very clear guidelines for what type of safety measures are to be followed and what type of training workers should have for different things. The goal is always to keep employees safe while working in what is known to be a dangerous line of work.

What determines if an injury qualifies for workers' compensation?

Being injured at work is a shock. Most employees are very safe and do everything they can to continue working and earning a living. If you are injured on-the-job, you should learn about the options that you have for dealing with the financial burden you now face.

Can I refuse dangerous work?

While following your employer’s instructions is generally a good thing, there are some situations that may require you to break the rules. If you have ever felt that you were in danger during a work assignment in California, you may have wondered what your legal rights were and whether or not your job would be protected if you refused. Here is what the United States Occupational Health and Safety Administration has to say.
