You Were Fired After Your Workplace Injury
Being fired due to a work injury is illegal in Fresno, CA. Injured workers that lose their job for filing a workers’ compensation claim could have legal recourse for unlawful termination.
If your employer terminates your job for any of the following reasons, then it could be imperative that you speak with a workers’ compensation, temporary disability, and permanent disability professionals:
- Applying for adjudication of claim to resolve a dispute with the Division of Workers’ Compensation
- Getting a temporary or permanent disability rating from a doctor
- Intending to file a workers’ compensation claim
- Settling your workers’ compensation claim with your employer
- Submitting a work comp claim at your job
- Winning your workers’ compensation claim
Employers that retaliate against their employees after a workplace injury may be subject to fines awarded to you.
Your Employer Refuses To Pay
When you are injured on the job doing activities that benefit your employer, then you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Workers’ compensation laws in California include payments for:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages during your temporary disability
- Reimbursement for the permanent loss of function caused by your permanent disability
- Job Retraining vouchers when you are unable to return to your previous job
- Mileage reimbursement for doctors appointments and other medical treatment
California is a no-fault state for workers’ compensation benefits, so you should receive benefits regardless of who is responsible for your injuries. Accidents happen and if your Fresno employer refuses to pay your benefits because they feel you are misleading with the severity or origins of your injuries, contact Ghitterman, Ghitterman & Feld for a free consultation today.
