If Any Illness or Injury is Incurred While At Work The Employer is Required To Pay For Workers' Compensation Benefits in California
If any illness or injury is incurred while at work, by law, the employer is required to pay for workers’ compensation benefits. Some examples of work related injuries from a single event include: hurting your back in a fall while climbing a ladder, sustaining burns from a chemical that happens to splash on your skin or getting in a car accident while making deliveries. Some injuries can also result from overexposure to work settings that can include: carpal tunnel from the consistent motion of wrist movement or hearing loss as a result of the persistent presence of loud noise.
Because of the unfairness of California workers compensation laws, if you are seriously injured or have had a family member killed on the job, you need a lawyer to see if you have a viable third-party case. You need a lawyer that specializes in third party civil lawsuits. IT IS THE ONLY WAY THAT YOU WILL RECEIVE JUSTICE. Depend on it.
Don't leave your case up to a California workers compensation attorney. In order to receive fair compensation for your injuries, you need a California lawyer that specializes in third party cases. Noted San Diego, California trial lawyer Bill Turley has been handling California third party cases since 1986. Bill Turley teaches other lawyers how to successfully handle these complex cases.
“When I seek out professional advice, I don’t want B.S. I want it straight up, with no double talk. I figure do also. I always use plain English, with no sugarcoating no B.S. lawyer talk, and no double talk - just old fashioned, unsweetened, unvarnished truth-just the way that I would want it.” -Bill Turley
The First Step
When handling your work injury case, nothing matters more than the honest truth. Nothing. You must be straightforward and honest about your case. I have seen many instances where a client will sugarcoat their injury and the courts throw out the case. Why? All because they were not honest from the get-go.
The Next Step
If you've been injured on the job, you probably have a ton of questions. I understand. You are concerned about your family and your livelihood. My suggestion is the next step you should take before anything else is to read my book, Win Your Injury Case. I wrote it to help folks like you, good people who got hurt on the job.
