Is fault important in a workers' compensation claim?

Many California residents may not be aware that when they are injured on the job and they are covered under workers' compensation insurance, a workers' compensation claim is their sole remedy for their injuries. An injured employee cannot sue their employer for a work-related injury in any other way. Many may find this system restrictive, as a personal injury lawsuit is probably going to get more compensation for an injured person, but there are certain benefits to pursuing a workers' compensation claim.

What is employer retaliation?

Many people may hesitate from filing a workers' compensation claim after they have been injured in a workplace accident because they fear they will lose their job or other work-related benefits. However, under California law, it is illegal to discriminate against workers who are injured in the course and scope of their employment.

Even though most California residents spend more time at work than they do at home, they rarely consider the fact that they might get injured in the workplace. Whether working in an office or at a construction site, hazards of various types exist in the workplace and it is an employer's duty to ensure their workplace is either free from risks or that employees are aware of those dangers and how to avoid them.
