workers' compensation benefits Archives

Workers' compensation provides more than medical care coverage

You were enjoying your day at work when a coworker reported a younger member of the team making a dangerous error. The young team member didn't take the advice of the other coworker, so you had to step in. Unfortunately, it was too late to prevent the error from causing harm, and you ended up on the wrong side of the tool.

Families can seek out death benefits after losing a loved one

When a worker is killed on the job, his or her family is usually entitled to workers' compensation death benefits. These benefits provide compensation for funeral expenses, medical expenses and other financial needs.

3 things to know about filing a workers' comp claim

After years of working in a Cerritos machine shop, you have seen your fair share of accidents. You have even had a few close calls yourself. In reality, it only takes a moment for a catastrophic injury to occur on the shop floor. If you do suffer an injury, do you know what to do? Do you know how the workers' compensation process works in California? Furthermore, do you even qualify to file a claim?

Predesignate a doctor in case of a workplace injury

In an emergency, the last thing you have on your mind is which doctor you want to see. Most people just want to feel better, to stop bleeding or to get pain medications to help them feel normal. If not having your own doctor is something that worries you, you may be able to predesignate a personal physician with your employer.

You deserve workers' compensation for occupational illnesses

The workers' compensation system is supposed to be there to help those who are hurt on the job. The problem is that some people are not given all the benefits they deserve as easily as they should receive them. Sometimes, employers don't want to file a claim, or they claim that the injury you've suffered isn't related to your work.

When your California workers' comp claim gets denied

Getting hurt on the job can have a number of unexpected results. You may struggle with the downtime as you recover. You may experience increased tensions with other family members because of your constant presence in the home. Sometimes, you have to worry about financial issues because your workers' compensation claim was denied. A denial doesn't mean you won't get benefits, but it can create a delay that causes substantial financial issues. If you are unable to work because of your injuries, how can you expect to pay for the medical care you need to resume your job?

Workers' comp gets tricky when injuries occur during break time

In the state of California, workers are entitled to benefits, including medical expenses and lost wages, if they are injured while working. To many individuals, this seems pretty straightforward--something that should not cause much contention or dispute.
