If you work in the agriculture industry, you likely know that your risk for on-site injuries is relatively high. Just like employees in other industries, you are eligible for workers’ compensation coverage through your employer in the event you become hurt or sick at work. If you have been injured and reported your condition but have not received benefits, the accomplished team at Accident Recovery Legal Center can help.
Under California state law, all employers with more than one employee are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance for their employees. This insurance is intended to cover your medical expenses and reimburse you for lost wages if you have to miss work as a result of your workplace injuries. In order to collect these benefits, you need only to report your injury to your supervisor and fill out some paperwork. If you need assistance with this, we are happy to help.
Most of our clients have followed the proper steps and are still told that they won’t be receiving any workers’ compensation benefits. If this happens, you need to contact us right away. We’ll help you determine how best to proceed in order to get the compensation to which you are entitled. Don’t waste another day waiting for a nonexistent check to come in the mail — call our firm today.
