Practically every day, all across the state of California, men and women suffer injuries while they are performing the duties of their jobs. Some of those injuries are relatively minor, such as small trips that result in stubbed toes, or minor cuts from boxes or papers. However, some individuals are involved in serious workplace accidents that leave them severely harmed and unable to continue to do their work.
A workplace accident can take a victim away from their employment and deny them the opportunities to support their family. As they work to recover, they may see their income stop and their financial power diminish. A workplace accident can do more than just hurt a victim’s body: it can also limit their ability to provide for the people that they love.
For these reasons it is important that individuals understand their legal options for getting help when they are unable to work due to workplace accidents. Options can include workers’ compensation, a form of financial support that provides victims with compensation when their jobs are the causes of their injuries. A workers’ compensation attorney can give a victim the information to serve the victim’s financial and legal interests.
Attorney Vincent Scotto workers diligently for the needs of his workplace accident and injury clients, and recognizes that every person who suffers this form of loss deserves legal help that they can trust. His firm is located in San Mateo and is available to individuals who are not working due to injuries and who wish to take proactive steps toward coming back after their workplace accidents.
