Alexander D. Napolin of Napolin Accident Injury Lawyer Riverside says, “Everyone knows that accidents can happen when you least expect them and each day in southern California many of these accidents result in injuries due to a third party's negligence. Luckily, thanks to personal injury laws, you have the right to seek damages for the injury that resulted from an accident when another person is responsible for the harm. If you were injured in an accident that occurred on the job, you are entitled to damages under California workers' compensation laws. Act quickly to secure legal representation and meet tight deadlines to make sure you get the settlement you deserve.”
The California Labor Code contains the elements of the workers’ compensation law of the state. This particular law mandates all employers in the state to have an insurance plan that covers their workers for work job-related illness or injury. In exchange for providing this insurance, an employee cannot file a lawsuit for personal injury against his or her employer in most situations. The Labor Code also mandates that each workers’ compensation insurance plan has to offer a set of benefits that need to be administered in a certain way. The enforcement of workers’ compensation is handled by the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board (WCAB) where lawyers can present any disputes regarding the issue and this can be heard by judges.
When in need of a workers compensation attorney Riverside residents can depend on the team of lawyers at Napolin Accident Injury Lawyer Riverside who are ready to provide a free consultation. Every local district office of the WCAB has judges who can hear any disagreements and issue decisions that will be binding on all parties concerned. Workplace injury victims can get the services of an attorney who can help them in filing a lawsuit to ensure that their claim is appropriately administered. It is important to note that despite workers’ compensation being a no-fault benefits system, the claims process is extremely adversarial mostly because of the insurance firm’s desire to minimize the amount paid to employees to lower costs and increase profits for the employer.
There are two basic types of injuries that are covered under workers’ compensation. The first type is one the occurs during work as a result of trauma to the body, such as a slip and fall that resulted into a broken leg. The second type of injury results from repetitive job activities, such as typing, which may result into carpal tunnel syndrome. Meanwhile, psychiatric disorder and toxic exposure cases are also covered and could fall under either mechanism, depending on the circumstances. However, psychiatric disorder claims have unique rules for collecting under Labor Code Section 3208.3, which means that it is always a requirement to consult with an attorney when making such a claim. Basically, the illness or injury need to have arisen out of and in the course of the employment. Coverage is typically provided when such is established, except for psychiatric disorder, which has special rules.
