Calabasas Workers' Compensation Lawyer
Injured on the Job? Get the Benefits You Need.
Generally speaking, employees cannot sue their employers for injuries sustained at work, although some specific types of on the job injuries might warrant a lawsuit. Instead, people who are injured at work can try to obtain workers' compensation.
The workers' compensation system is designed to ensure that injured employees will receive fixed monetary awards for their work-related injuries or illnesses without having to take such claims to court. Workers' comp applies to persons who are either injured on the job, or are suffering from an illness or disease related to their line of work; they do not necessarily have to be injured at work to be eligible for workers' comp.
Unlike a personal injury claim or lawsuit, workers are not required to prove fault on the part of the employer to receive workers' compensation, they need only prove that the injury was work-related. Employers usually carry workers compensation insurance to compensate employees for work-related injury & illness claims, and typically have this type of insurance on reserve just in case an employee is injured.
