Arash Law Fights for Workplace Accident Victims

If you have been injured in a workplace accident, you have the right to be compensated for your injuries and losses. Most workers who are injured while on the job are entitled to workers’ compensation – regardless of who was at fault for causing their injuries. In some cases, you may be able to bring a personal injury claim after a work-related injury as well, but the claim will typically need to be against a party other than your employer. Some examples of work-related accidents that often allow injured workers to file personal injury claims include those caused by defective work equipment or those involving the negligence of an independent contractor or other third-party. 

Arash Law Protects Your Right to Workers’ Compensation

Workers’ compensation rights are established by state law. Every state has different laws and requirements, so it is important to work with an attorney who has experience with California workers’ compensation claims. Workers’ compensation is designed to get compensation to any injured worker quickly. This is one reason that injured workers’ do not have to prove was at fault for their accident. But, there are other requirements. For example, you must see a doctor quickly after your injury and get appropriate documentation of all your treatment. You must document your lost wages and submit that claim in the designated manner. You might also have additional claims that can supplement your workers’ compensation. Be sure to consult with a personal injury lawyer about your workers’ compensation rights.
