Under California law, employers are legally obliged to implement a workers compensation scheme, intended to provide compensation to employees who have been injured, fallen ill, or been involved in an accident whilst on the job. Unfortunately for many employees in Lancaster and elsewhere in the state, your employer having such a scheme does not always mean you will receive payment of this compensation after a workplace injury. The insurance companies behind these workers compensation schemes can be prone to underpaying or denying valid claims, leaving people just like you out of pocket while they are unable to work. You may be led to believe that your medical history, or a specific entry on your medical records disqualifies you from claiming, but this is not true.
