You have a right to a safe and healthy workplace. So when you get hurt at work, you are well within your rights to seek compensation.
For most individuals, this involves pursuing a workers compensation claim. Unfortunately, California’s workers compensation laws are very complicated, and it is not at all uncommon for injured individuals to have their claims disputed and their payments denied or reduced.

Workers Comp vs Personal Injury Claims
While the majority of workers are covered under worker’s comp, some employers are not required to carry this coverage. If you are not covered, or if your accident involves liability on the part of someone other than your employer, you may have the option of pursuing a personal injury claim. The most important difference between the two types of claims is that workers comp does not require any proof of fault. All you have to prove is that you were injured at work or due to a condition of work. In a personal injury claim, you must show that someone else caused your injury. Additionally, keep in mind that while workers comp does not cover damages for pain and suffering, personal injury claims do.
You can rely on our experienced attorneys to advise you whether it is in your best interests to pursue a workers compensation claim or a personal injury claim.
