Legal Help for Injured Workers through Workers Compensation.
If you have been injured at work, you are legally entitled to certain benefits from your employer even if the injury may have been your fault. Regardless of whether your injury happened suddenly or took years to occur, the law gives you several benefits as an injured worker. Located in Beverly Hills and Glendale, we at Mosesi.com represent injured workers and fight for their benefits. We work hard to get injured workers the benefits and compensation that they deserve.
Examples of work injuries are: hurting your back in a fall or picking up boxes, getting burned by splashing oil, getting in a car accident while making a delivery. Another example of a work related injury is hurting your wrist from doing the same work over and over again over the course of months or years.
Remember that it is illegal for your employer to fire you or punish you for having a work injury or filing a workers compensation claim when you are injured at work.
The Benefits You May be Entitled to under Workers Compensation:
- Temporary Disability. These are payments by the employer to you in order to replace your wages while you are unable to work.
- Medical Care. These benefits are paid by your employer to help you recover from your injury.
- Permanent Disability. Payments to you in case you do not recover completely from your workplace injury.
- Death Benefits. These benefits are paid to a spouse, children or other dependents in case the worker dies from her injuries.
- Supplemental Job Displacement Benefits. Payments made to retrain the injured worker if he cannot return to the same employer.
- Penalties and Interest. If your employer violates the law and doesn’t timely pay your benefits, you can be entitled to penalties and interest.
