SAN JOSE & SALINAS WORKERS’ COMPENSATION ATTORNEY SERVICES
Trusted Workers' Compensation Counsel Proudly Representing San Jose & Salinas Since 1985
California employers must provide workers’ compensation benefits to employees who become injured or sick while performing work-related duties. Workers’ compensation is a no-fault system, which means you do not need to prove someone else caused your injury to receive benefits. This also means that you may receive compensation even if you were partially at fault in the incident leading to your injuries.
At Accident Recovery Legal Center, we help our clients file for workers’ compensation to recover the benefits to which they are entitled. We guide our clients through every stage of the claims process to ensure they obtain the full amount of benefits granted to them under California law. We encourage you to give us a call today to arrange a free consultation.
