The workers’ compensation laws within the Labor Code of California are extremely complex. No two cases are the same. If you have been injured at work, attorneys experienced in workers’ compensation law can explain the complexities of workers’ compensation and help you secure the maximum benefits to which you are entitled. It is the best way to ensure your rights will be protected.
Filing a workers’ compensation claim is similar to filing an insurance claim; it isn’t a lawsuit against an employer, but rather a request for benefits.
In California, every business must have some form of workers’ compensation insurance to cover injured employees. If your employer does not have workers’ compensation insurance, you are still entitled to workers’ compensation benefits provided by the state of California. You may also be able to bring a civil suit against your employer.
The term “workers’ compensation” refers to a system of laws under the Labor Code of California outlining specific benefits to which injured employees are entitled, and the procedures for obtaining such benefits.
