Buena Park Workers’ Compensation Lawyers
Buena Park workers help their city thrive. They work hard and deserve to feel protected and safe in the workplace. Unfortunately, even the most cautious and safest workplace can still have work-related injuries. California law requires employers to provide workers’ compensation to protect workers. Injured workers may be eligible to receive benefits to cover medical treatment, lost wages, temporary and permanent disability, and other benefits related to your workplace injury.
Filing a Workers’ Compensation Claim in California
To receive any workers’ compensation benefits, the worker must first file a workers’ compensation claim. Immediately after receiving medical attention, workers must report the injury to their employer. Without written notice within thirty days of the initial date of the injury, a worker could lose their right to workers’ compensation benefits.
It may seem as simple as reporting an injury and filing some paperwork. It’s not always that simple. Even a minor injury claim can become a complicated workers’ compensation claim when insurance companies offer less than what the worker deserves in benefits. If you are dealing with a complicated claim, contact a California workers’ compensation lawyer. Our attorneys at KCNS Law Group understand the tactics insurance companies can use to take advantage of injured workers, which is why we are dedicated to ensuring our clients get the fair compensation they deserve.
Workers’ Compensation Benefits in California
Once workers file their workers’ compensation claim, they may be eligible for the following benefits:
Medical benefits cover any cost associated with the recovery and treatment of the injury. These costs may include:
- Initial medical treatment
- Medical evaluation
- Medical treatments
- Medical aid devices
- Transportation costs to medical treatments
If the medical cost is proven to be related to the injury sustained because or at work, it should be covered by workers’ compensation benefits. The worker should keep all documentation of expenses relating to their injury as evidence for their claim.
Temporary Disability Payments
When an injured worker cannot work or has limited ability to work, they may be eligible for temporary disability payments. Payments are based on two-thirds of the average weekly wage of the worker. There is also a state-mandated weekly maximum depending on the date of the injury.
Permanent Disability Payments
Workers whose injury permanently affects their ability to work or participate in the job market are eligible for permanent disability payments. A doctor must provide a rating on the extent of the worker’s disability. To understand the extent of a person’s disability, the doctor must consider the type of injury sustained, the worker’s age, occupation, and restrictions the person now faces because of the injury.
