Addressing issues that often arise after workplace accidents

For many in California, going to work and performing one's duties each and every day are merely part of a routine. However, employees are advised to avoid becoming complacent when it comes to keeping up-to-date on laws and regulations that govern workers' compensation situations. One never knows when workplace accidents may occur, likely leaving those who are uninformed feeling helpless and confused about where to go for assistance.

Being hurt on the job is not uncommon on farms throughout the state. Many packers, pickers and factory workers are injured every year. In such situations, it is often helpful to seek guidance from an experienced advocate who has assisted others in obtaining the benefits they deserve when their injuries prevent them from returning to the workplace.

Employers are obligated to purchase insurance that provides the benefits that help injured workers pay medical bills and replace lost wages when work accidents occur. If an employee is hurt on the job, and discovers that the employer is uninsured, it may be necessary to consult an experienced workers' compensation lawyer to determine how best to proceed to pursue the matter. Ghitterman Ghitterman & Feld has successfully represented many injured agricultural workers as they struggled to resolve complicated issues.

Certain California jobs contain inherent risks to personal safety due to the very nature of the workers' duties. Regardless of the type of work an injured worker was doing when an accident occurred, all injured employees have the right to claim benefits when workplace accidents happen. If you are having trouble solving problems related to workers' compensation, you can contact our office to request guidance.
