Los Angeles Workers' Compensation Attorney
Help for Workers' Comp Claims and Appeals in Los Angeles, CA
When a Los Angeles worker is injured on the job, he or she may have the right to file a workers' compensation claim in order to seek benefits while he or she is unable to work. Workers' compensation is the nation's oldest social insurance program. It was adopted in most states, including in California, during the 1920s. One of the many advantages of workers' comp is that it is a no-fault system, meaning you do not have to prove that the incident was another person's fault in order to seek benefits.
If you were injured at work, it is important to consider involving an attorney. Although workers' compensation benefits are in place to protect workers just like you who have been injured on the job, situations may arise where the employer will attempt to subvert these laws and fail to provide sufficient financial compensation to their employees who have been injured or disabled, or who have lost their lives. In these cases, having a competent Los Angeles workers' compensation lawyer at your side may make a significant difference in your ability to recover the benefits to which you are entitled.
