The California workers' compensation system is designed to help injured workers cover the cost of health care and recovery for work-related injuries. If your injury developed as a result of your job requirements, you can qualify for the workers' compensation program.
Sometimes, the prolonged stress on your joints and ligaments lead to irreversible damage. When this happens, you may not be able to continue performing your job duties. If this is the case, workers' compensation is able to cover job retraining expenses as you switch professions.
Do not be afraid to file a claim for your injury. Your employer is not financially responsible for covering your injury expenses. Every company is required by law to have workers' compensation insurance; this insurance is explicitly for the purpose of paying for the health care needs of injured employees.
Allow yourself to recover both physically and financially by pursuing a workers' compensation claim. Ask our San Jose workers' comp attorneys for guidance regarding your specific case by calling (408) 709-7317.
