“Workers compensation” is one of those things that everyone has heard, but not everyone knows what it is. So, they may not know how it could really help them out when they need it. Workers compensation can be there to give you the money you need to pay for your medical bills (and more) when you’ve been hurt on the job. All too many workers are unaware of their rights. In this blog, a workers compensation attorney in Los Angeles will explain a bit about how it works and how it can help you, should an accident befall you at work.

Accidents at Work
One of the things that people are usually the most surprised to hear is that you’re entitled to compensation as well as medical treatment even if the accident is your fault on the job. For most people, they’re used to the idea of “if it’s your fault, you have to pay.” Maybe that’s true in other kinds of law and other cases, but not when it comes to workers’ compensation. With California labor laws, you are entitled to receive payment for your medical treatment and more. So, should you hurt yourself by dropping something on your foot, or some other accident that could be your fault, you don’t have to deal with it all on your own.
Types of Benefits
There are multiple kinds of benefits that our attorney can help you to receive. Perhaps the most common is medical benefits. When you’re hurt at work, you may need medical care. Even if you’ve saved up your money very diligently, even if you’ve got great health insurance, these bills can be staggering. They can be quite a bit of money that most people just don’t have. Thankfully, this is where workers compensation comes in. With the right attorney by your side, you can get the money to cover the bills for these treatments. Instead of having to pay out of pocket or go into debt, you can get the necessary help.
When the Claim is Denied
Unfortunately, sometimes a workers compensation claim is denied. When that happens, you want the right attorney fighting for you. Here at the Accident Lawyer, you need someone who’s done this before. An attorney with a proven track record of success in this kind of law can be an absolute lifesaver. Remember, the other side is going to have incredible attorneys. Insurance companies and similar institutions have what amount to limitless resources. They can hire absolutely the best of everything: analysts, attorneys and more. To stand up to them and get what you deserve, you need an attorney just as good as theirs, with resources as good as what they have. That’s where the Accident Lawyer comes in.
Workers compensation benefits manifest in many different ways. They can be for “temporary disability,” meaning that you’re unable to do your job for a brief period of time. In that case, you can receive compensation for the time that you’re unable to work. Or, another way that you could receive benefits is for “Permanent Disability.” In that case, you’re unable to do your job to the ability you were or perhaps at all. In that case, you would be eligible for the long term lost wages. Additionally, you could be eligible for the wages you would have had in the future. There are many more kinds of workers compensation payments, too.
