workplace Injuries

injured at work? We can help.

An injury in the workplace can lead to serious pain and economic loss. Workplace injuries may cause temporary or permanent disability, and displace the injured workers from their jobs.

You should, of course, pursue a workers' compensation claim to receive the money you need to pay for medical treatment as well as other benefits. But did you also know that you may be entitled to additional compensation for your pain and suffering? We work with victims of workplace injuries to identify other sources of recovery outside of the workers' compensation system.

sources of recovery

can you pursue compensation for your workplace injury outside of worker's comp?

Filing a workers’ compensation claim can provide immediate financial relief, but the payments can be low and fail to fully compensate you for your pain and suffering. Workers’ comp claims also do not provide punitive damages, which are designed to punish employers for creating dangerous work conditions. Fortunately, you may have a legal claim outside of the workers’ compensation system that will allow you to make a full financial recovery following a workplace injury.

when can you sue outside of workers' comp for your workplace injury?

If a third party is also responsible for your injuries, you might have a claim outside of the workers' comp system. In some situations, your employer may also be held responsible. For instance you could have:
  • A product liability claim if you were injured by a defective product

  • A personal injury lawsuit against a third party that is responsible for your injuries

  • A personal injury lawsuit against your employer for intentional or egregious conduct

If you have been injured at work in California, you are entitled to payment for all medical treatment that is reasonably required to cure or relieve the injury at no cost to you. You may also be entitled to full or partial temporary disability benefits, permanent disability benefits, supplemental job displacement benefits, and, in the event of death, death benefits.

Under some circumstances, you may have a personal injury claim against another party as well. For example, a defective product used in your office may have been a contributing cause to your injury and you be able to recover compensation from the manufacturer. Or, you may have a claim against the manufacturer of a toxic substance if you were injured by a toxic substance. Your employer can even be held responsible if their actions created an unsafe work condition. In these situations, you may have a Workers’ Compensation claim and a personal injury claim against a third party.

Under California law, there are time constraints, known as the Statute of Limitations, in which you must pursue your personal injury claim. If you delay filing your claim too long, you may forfeit your right to pursue compensation for your injuries.

Tony was the best ever. He was responsive and would answer any questions I had right away. I have had experiences with lawyers who would act like you were bothering them when you had questions. He made me feel like he was treating my case like it was his most important case. Not one complaint and I tell anyone who asks if I know an Attorney about Tony. Thank you again.
