Workplace Injuries & Workers' Compensation

California Employers Are Required to Provide Compensation

When most people think of workplace injuries, they think of high-risk environments such as construction sites or factories. However, injuries can occur in low-risk environments such as offices, as well. Workers' compensation is required of every employer in California, so if you have been injured on the job, make sure you educate yourself about your rights and what legal options are available to you. Speak with a Walnut Creek workers' comp attorney today to learn exactly what could be done to fight for compensation after suffering any kind of injury while on the job.

Types of Workplace Injuries

Many workplace injuries are minor and require little to no medical treatment. Small cuts, lacerations, scrapes, and bruises can be easily treated with basic first aid and will not require a claim. However, if you are involved in a slip and fall accident-the most common case for workers' comp claims-you could suffer a more serious injury. Broken bones are common and require expensive treatment such as x-rays, setting the broken bone, and casting. Burns and serious cuts or lacerations can also require professional medical care and may also result in permanent scarring.

Slips, trips and falls can also cause catastrophic injuries resulting in temporary or permanent disability, such as traumatic brain injury (TBI) or spinal cord injuries. TBI can cause severe memory loss, permanent brain damage, or comas. Spinal cord injuries often result in numbness or loss of function below the area of injury, such as partial or complete paralysis. Whatever injury you have suffered, you should fight for the medical treatment to be paid for by your employer's insurance. For assistance in filing a workers' comp claim, contact an attorney right away.
