Making sure to get full workers' compensation benefits

Understanding workers' compensation benefits is vital for workers who have been injured on the job. Workers' compensation benefits in California provide a system to protect workers when they have been harmed in a workplace accident or are suffering from a workplace illness.

Injured workers and their families, and workers suffering from an occupational illness, should know how to respond to a workplace accident. Following a workplace accident, injured workers should notify their supervisor of the injury they have suffered. Next, they should seek medical treatment for their injuries. Of course, they should always immediately seek whatever emergency medical care and treatment they need. They should also make a claim for workers' compensation benefits.

Because it is important for injured workers and their families to receive the full amount of benefits they need, it can be helpful to have trained guidance through the workers' compensation process. Not understanding the process can sometimes lead to missteps in the application process that can result in serious consequences for injured workers and their families that may not receive the full amount of benefits they should receive as a result. Workers' compensation benefits can help with lost wages, medical expenses and when the worker has suffered a disability.

Injured workers should always be familiar with their workers' compensation benefits and know how to approach a claim for benefits to maximize the benefits they receive. Workers' compensation can be an invaluable resource for injured workers and their families and is one they should not be unaware of.
