Workers' Compensation in Corona
It is an unfortunate fact that many Corona employees sustain workplace injuries every year. According to data from the most recent report released by the California Commission on Health and Safety and Workers’ Compensation, 15.6 million California employees reported workplace injuries in 2014. Furthermore, two out of every 10,000 employees will die as a result of workplace injuries annually.
If you have suffered a work-related injury or medical condition, RP Law Group can help you navigate the complex workers’ compensation system and get the benefits to which you are entitled.
The workers’ compensation system is designed to benefit both employers and their employees. Each makes a compromise; employers pay for workers’ compensation insurance to protect their employees from unfair financial consequences and employees agree not to sue their employers for medical and wage benefits.
Getting Help from a Corona Workers' Compensation Attorney
As is true of most things, the workers’ compensation system doesn’t always work as designed. Many Corona employers are reluctant to help injured employees take advantage of workers’ compensation benefits. They may fail to report your injury, invalidate your claim when they speak to their insurance provider, or attempt to intimidate employees to such a degree that they do not apply for benefits following an injury. In these instances, you need the expertise of an experienced Corona workers’ compensation lawyer. RP Law Group has a reputation as one of the most aggressive and effective workplace injury law firms in the area.
