An accident at work can be a difficult event to get through. Not only may a California resident experience pain and suffering from the injuries they sustain through their accident, but they may also suffer stress and economic loss when they cannot do their job and provide for themselves and their loved ones. In the end, an on-the-job incident may leave a person with physical trauma, economic loss and emotional suffering.
Readers of this blog may know that the law provides a number of different paths for accident victims to follow to seek the compensation they deserve when others cause them harm. When an employer fails to take the proper precautions and to provide their employee with the right training, that employee may be harmed in an accident while performing the duties of their job. In such situations, a workers' compensation claim may be the most effective legal option for the victim-employee getting the support they need while they recuperate.
