Benefits of Workers' Compensation
Workers' Comp Lawyer in Walnut Creek
Workplace accidents have many causes, but almost no matter what happened or who is at fault--all workplace injuries should be covered by workers' compensation. Every employer is required to offer such coverage to their employees, so unless you have chosen to deny workers' comp benefits, you have an employee's right to file a claim if you've been injured on the job.
Workers' comp benefits offer relief in several ways, and can even mean the difference between your recovery and your financial ruin. If you have been injured at work, speak with a Walnut Creek workers' comp attorney as soon as possible to educate yourself and discuss your legal options.

Why should I file a workers' comp claim?
The main reason most people file a workers' comp claim is so that their expensive medical treatment is paid for by their employer's insurance. Without such coverage, an injured worker would have to pay for their medical care out of pocket, which could result in financial stress. Workers' comp also guarantees some payment during an employee's time away from work as they receive their treatment and recover from their injury. No compensation means there is no income for the employee during that time.
Even when an employee returns to work, if they are temporarily disabled and cannot return to their original position, a portion of their wage loss could be covered by disability insurance. Injured workers are also protected from wrongful termination, as California law states that no employer may discriminate against an employee because of an injury.
