Going to work should be a peaceful and safe experience where you go to earn…
Your job is the last place that should endanger your health. Yet, we know that people are hurt on the job every day. Some people experience a bodily injury while others deal with illness. The difference between the two can be difficult to discern. Our Los Angeles Workplace Illness Attorneys at Koszdin, Fields, Sherry & Katz want you to know that whether you were injured or suffering from an illness we are by your side. We believe that as a worker you are dedicated and perform to your ability. An accident should not prevent you from getting the benefits you deserve.
In California, worker’s compensation is a no-fault state. This means that if you file a workers’ compensation claim you do not have to prove the negligence of the workplace. You can’t be denied because of your negligence either. This is important to note because there are jobs that carry more risk than others. Just because there is risk does not mean that you do not deserve worker’s compensation benefits.
Depending on your accident, you are allotted recovery time. Here are several examples of incidences with their average recovery time:
The average time does not mean the most time. Depending on your situation and your body, you may need more time off from work. If that is the case that you need a good representative to ensure that your needs are being met. Just because the average is 8 days does not mean that you are do not need more time.
Don’t feel upset because you need more time off work. If you do not take the time to heal then how can you be productive for your employer? You have rights and benefits, use them for your health as they are intended. Do not hesitate to reach out to us for legal help.
