California workplace accidents and the law

When a worker is injured on the job, a certain protocol is typically advised when reporting the injury and filing a workers' compensation claim to collect benefits. California employers are obligated to provide this type of insurance to employees as a means of helping them cover medical costs or replace lost wages when workplace accidents take place. The process can be complicated, however, depending on individual circumstances, which may be simplified by seeking assistance from an attorney who represents injured workers.

Many workers have run into legal challenges when insurance companies or employers attempt to deny claims. These types of obstacles can greatly impede injured workers' abilities to get the care and treatment necessary for recovery. Ghitterman, Ghitterman & Feld focuses on helping the injured person, not the employer. We have successfully represented clients in a wide variety of situations, including farming accidents, construction mishaps and injuries involving heavy equipment and machinery.

It is not uncommon for certain jobs to pose dangers or risk to employees. However, there are usually safety protocols and other regulations designed to keep them as safe as possible on the job. Some work-related injuries occur from ongoing, repetitive motions while others occur in an instant when unexpected accidents happen due to negligence. Either way, legal challenges are often more easily overcome when a worker turns to an experienced lawyer for guidance.

California workplace accidents will continue to happen. A key factor in claiming benefits and securing the medical assistance one needs after an injury may lie in the type of approach one takes to obtain the compensation and care to which one is rightfully entitled. A logical first step to take in the process is to call our office to arrange a consultation so that we can help you explore all options that may be available.
