Long Beach Workplace Accident Attorney
We spend much of our waking day working at our jobs in offices, at retail and restaurant locations, at construction sites or on scaffolds, on the road, or in any other number of locations throughout the day. Simply by the laws of probability, it’s to be expected that a certain number of workers will be injured or suffer a workplace accident. While some jobs are inherently more dangerous than others, the fact remains that an injury on the job can take place just about anywhere.
Workers’ compensation protects employees who are injured on the job, and in most cases, it provides them with funds that will help them cover lost wages and medical bills. But in some cases, despite the fact that a claim is valid, an employer may challenge it. In other instances, an injured employee may feel that they are not being adequately compensated under California’s workers’ comp laws.
In situations like these, the best course of action is to hire a seasoned workplace injury litigator to represent your interests. Nobody else is going to look out after you in a legal setting, and because the stakes are so high, it makes good sense to do everything you can to protect your legal rights and financial stability.
Even in cases where workers’ compensation adequately addresses lost wages and medical bills, there are also times when an employer’s negligence in the workplace cannot be overlooked. When an employer does not provide employees a safe workplace or asks employees to do work that is dangerous and results in accidents, it does lay the basis for a separate workplace claim. In those instances, a workplace injury attorney can be your best ally in making sure you are fairly compensated based on the facts of your particular situation over and above what you may be entitled to through a workers’ compensation claim.
