What Does a Workers’ Compensation Attorney Do?

A workers’ compensation attorney plays an important role in helping their clients obtain medical treatment, benefits, and a fair compensation. At Lavrac Accident Law, we always do the best we can to help our clients with their treatment, benefits, and as always, the best compensation possible. 

What is Considered a Work Injury? and What are The 9 Most Dangerous Workplaces in California?

There are many different types of work injuries or harmful exposure at the workplace. For example, excessive exposure to noise, dust, chemicals, or harmful substances or harsh work environments can cause work injuries. There are also cumulative trauma injuries along with excessive exposure to stressful or traumatic events. Additionally, injured workers sometimes get injured as a result of having contact with dangerous objects or equipment. Finally, slips, trips, and falls account for a major part of work injuries as well. Therefore, work injuries can happen in many different ways and forms.

When You Can File a Workers’ Compensation Lawsuit?

The short answer is that a claim can be filed very quickly. However, proceeding with a claim or determining when to file a claim may require an attorney’s opinion. Therefore, before proceeding with a claim an injured worker should schedule a free evaluation with an experienced workers compensation attorney. It should be noted however, that speaking with an attorney does not mean an injured worker will have to file a claim, but it only means that an injured worker will have enough information and knowledge to know what to do and when to file a claim.

Main Differences Between Personal Injury and Workers' Compensation Law in California

If you’re hurt at work, why should you consult a workers’ compensation attorney as opposed to a general personal injury attorney?

Personal injury law deals with injuries that occur as a result of someone else’s negligence or intentional act. The plaintiff (the injured party) must prove that the defendant (the person or company being sued) was at fault and caused the injury.

Workers’ compensation law deals with injuries that occur on the job. Fault is generally not a factor in workers’ compensation claims, unless the work self-inflicts the injury (i.e., cause his own injury with intent of defrauding the insurance company).

California Workers’ Compensation Claim: Not Approved. What Can You Do?

Workplace injuries can be devastating, both physically and financially. Fortunately, California workers have the right to file a workers’ compensation claim in the event of an injury or illness that occurs on the job. However, not all claims are approved.
