Understanding the System of Workers' Compensation Attorneys
When it comes to workers’ compensation insurance, California has tight regulations. The California labour code requires workers’ compensation insurance for all employers with at least one employee; failure to do so might result in criminal or civil prosecution.
Who is eligible to file a claim for workers' compensation?
Part/Full Time Workers
- An injured worker is not required to prove that an employer or a co-worker was responsible for causing an accident; you should be able to receive benefits regardless of who or what caused your injuries.
- Injured employees also have the right to file a claim over injuries resulting from repetitive movement or exposure to environmental hazards such as excessive noise, in addition to those resulting from acute incidents such as falls.
- Keep in mind that you cannot sue your employer directly over any injuries you incurred in the workplace. Workers’ compensation insurance guarantees workers benefits in the event they are injured, but it also insulates employers from liability.
