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.

 

According to the California Department of Industrial Relations, the workers’ compensation program can provide both permanent and temporary disability benefits. You can also receive medical care from your employer to pay for any tests, equipment and doctor visits that you need to treat an injury or illness. Death benefits can also be paid to your family members if you suffer a fatal injury.

 

One thing that you may not realize is that your injury does not need to occur in one instance. Some types of injuries happen from repeated movements, such as bending, lifting or squeezing. Frequent loud noises can also induce hearing loss over time, and while not all injuries from repeated exposures are covered, there are many that can be treated with benefits from workers’ compensation.

 

Another fact that many people do not realize is that you can have your travel expenses for medical treatment covered by workers’ compensation. For more information on this topic, please visit our web page.
