When you are injured on the job, you are entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and more. However, what compensation you receive depends on the specific details of your case.
If you are injured, the first thing you must do is report the incident. If you fail to report, you may face more difficulty in getting the benefits you deserve. If an injury occurs, and you don’t immediately realize its severity, be sure to let your employer know about it as soon as you do. A good rule of thumb is to report any major incident that occurs, even if you feel fine at the time.
You are entitled to certain rights as an employee in the State of California. Do not allow your employer to bully you into not filing a claim. Be sure you’re receiving the full extent of your claim. You should be reimbursed for lost wages and medical expenses. You might also be entitled to other compensation. If you have questions about what your rights as an injured worker are, we can help.
