Worker’s Compensation is a body of CA laws that are meant to protect workers who are injured on the job. If an employee is seriously hurt on the job and has problems with their employer or with the compensation system, a workers compensation attorney in San Diego will make sure that the rights of the employee are protected and will see that he or she receives appropriate medical care, lost wages relating to the on-the-job injury, and, if required, retraining and rehabilitation, helping the employee to return to work as soon as possible.
If an employee is tragically killed on the job, members of the worker’s family are eligible for benefits. If needed, a family can consult with a workers compensation lawyer in San Diego who will do what is necessary to ensure the family receives the benefits to which they are entitled. They have the expertise and experience to see that the process goes as smoothly as possible, so as not to add to the pain and suffering a family feels after such a loss.
Employees will need to hire a workers compensation lawyer when they are denied their workers compensation benefits, are instructed to return to their occupation before they are medically able, or are denied extended or permanent disability after a serious injury. If your employer sends you to a physician who states that you are able to return to work even though you do not believe you are physically able, or tries to get you to return to work to a job created to accommodate your injury, you may want to consider speaking to a San Diego workers compensation lawyer.
