Frequently Asked Questions: Workers' Compensation

Los Angeles Workers' Compensation Lawyers

Workers' compensation may be a complex subject. Without knowledge of your rights as an injured worker and what benefits you may be entitled to receive, you may be at risk of having a valid claim denied or of receiving less than the benefits you deserve. That is why we offer a free initial consultation with a Los Angeles workers' compensation lawyer at our law firm. We have also included several frequently asked questions regarding workers' comp, for your convenience:

What is workers' compensation?
Workers' compensation is money your employer is required to pay, by law, for injuries on the job. This may include an injury sustained in an accident at work as well as an injury due to chemical exposure at work, or an injury from a repetitive motion.

What types of benefits can I receive?
There are 6 different types of workers' compensation benefits: medical care, temporary disability benefits, permanent disability benefits, supplemental job displacement benefits or vocational rehabilitation, and death benefits.

What should I do if I'm injured at work?
The first thing you should do is report your injury to your supervisor/employer. Reporting the injury as soon as possible is important, as this will help you avoid any delays in the payment of your benefits. It is also important that you seek medical attention as soon as possible, and that you consider consulting a lawyer.

Do I need an attorney?
Although you do not need to have an attorney in order to file your workers' compensation claim, having a legal professional to assist you during this process may help ensure that you have the opportunity of recovering the full benefits to which you are entitled. A Los Angeles workers' compensation lawyer can help ensure your claim is properly filed and that your interests are protected when you file your claim. A lawyer can also help if your claim is denied, by assisting you in filing an appeal.
