Workplace accidents can lead to other unexpected problems

There are many types of dangerous jobs in California. For instance, those who work on farms or in the construction industry are no strangers to various safety risks on the job. Not all workplace accidents occur in inherently dangerous places though. Office workers or others whose duties are carried out in relatively calm environments can also get hurt when they least expect it.

Thousands of workers are injured every year in situations that vary in severity. From  injuries involving heavy equipment or power tools to sprained ankles or back strains suffered from slips and falls on wet floors, workplace injuries often require emergency medical care and long periods of recovery. In fact, many on-the-job mishaps result in temporary or permanent disability. 

Employers are typically obligated to purchase insurance to provide benefits to injured employees, especially in situations where an injury prevents a worker from returning to the workplace. The process is not without its challenges, however, and can often be stressful for someone who has already suffered a traumatic experience. If an insurance agency attempts to deny a claim, it can make matters even worse.

The firm of Ghitterman, Ghitterman & Feld has successfully represented many workers injured in California workplace accidents. Whether your injury occurred in a sudden, unexpected way, or has developed over time (such as repetitive stress), we are prepared to help you navigate the workers' compensation process to obtain any and all benefits to which you may be entitled. Our commitment also extends to immediate family members who have suffered the loss of a loved one and are in need of benefits to meet expenses associated with their situation.
