Compassionate Work Injuries Attorney Securing Compensation for San Jose Victims
When you go to work, you are entitled to conduct your duties in a safe environment that doesn’t cause you harm. Your employer’s insurance should cover all the costs associated with treatment and care in the event you do get hurt at work, even if no one was at fault. If you’ve been injured on the job and are having trouble getting the full benefits workers’ compensation is supposed to afford you, we’re here to help.
Work Injuries & Your Employer’s Responsibility
Workers’ compensation is a kind of agreement between employers and their employees; by guaranteeing employees compensation in the event of a work-related injury or condition, employees forfeit the right to sue their employer for damages related to the injury. Essentially, your employer promises to take care of your medical bills and pay you for wages lost and you promise not to sue them if they fulfill this obligation.
Filing a Claim & Getting Compensation
If your employer or their insurance do not hold up their end of the deal, you are entitled to file a claim in order to pursue the compensation you deserve. While you can do this yourself, many people feel more comfortable working with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney to ensure everything is documented and filed correctly. Our attorneys have over 100 years combined experience in this arena and are accustomed to interfacing with businesses and their insurance firms to get the monetary assistance our clients are owed. We won’t stop until you get the benefits you deserve.
