Benefits of workers’ compensation claim
In any of the accidents mentioned above the worker must know his rights. That is, to count on the compensation benefits of California workers. If for some reason the employer or the insurance company does not give you due attention, you should immediately contact our Los Angeles injury lawyers.
California Law establishes at least five basic benefits, through workers’ compensation insurance that a worker can count on after an accident at work:
- Medical care: This is the payment of medical expenses to the employee by the employer during the recovery period. Either for the injury or illness contracted at work.
- Temporary disability benefits: It is the compensation that the employee must receive for lost wages. When the injuries suffered keep him out of his usual job.
- Permanent disability compensation: It is the payment that the worker will receive if he is prevented – after the final medical evaluation – from returning to work, because he failed to recover completely from the injuries.
- Supplementary benefits of labor displacement: It is the check or voucher that the worker receives to help him pay the expenses in education to learn a new trade. It includes improvements in work skills in your current job, in cases where you fail to recover completely from injuries and will not return to work at the company.

These benefits are: coverage of medical expenses, replacement of lost wages, temporary or permanent disability and compensation for death.

This way you will get the benefits of workers’ compensation and recover damages for personal injuries. To achieve this, you will surely need the help of a good and experienced Los Angeles car accident lawyer to help you identify the person responsible and prove his negligence.

A car accident lawyer is very helpful in cases of serious accidents with injuries or deaths. Moreover, in any traffic injury suffered or caused. To obtain compensation, the victim must prove the driver’s negligence and that is where they can help.
The California car insurance system is faulty, that means that to collect compensation it is necessary to prove the fault of the accused. In addition, the other party will try to prove that the plaintiff was guilty. The purpose they have is to decrease the amount of demand. Do not let that happen.
