Workplace accidents cause numerous workers to miss work every year, adding to the financial worries of individuals and their families. If you are an employee in California, whether part- or full-time, you are most likely eligible to file for workers' compensation.
Under this system, workers can receive benefits for costs related to their injuries, including medical costs and wage reimbursement. For a work injury to qualify for workers' compensation, the injury must have been caused while at work or while performing work-related duties.
Whether you are an employee of the construction industry, manufacturing sector, or work in an office environment, talk to a Santa Ana worker's comp attorney at our firm to learn more about filing a claim after an injury.
Ufkes & Bright has handled numerous claims for workplace injuries, including cumulative trauma, toxic exposure, occupational illnesses, and more. We can walk you through the process and help you seek the full and fair compensation you need.
Workers' Compensation vs. Third-Party Work Injury Claim
In situations where an injury was caused by a party who was not your employer, you may be able to pursue a third-party claim in addition to a workers' compensation claim.
A third-party claim can provide additional damages that are not available under workers' compensation, such as higher wage reimbursement, pain and suffering, and other costs.
Examples of third-party work injury claims:
- If your injury was caused by a defective product or machine, you may be able to hold the manufacturer liable.
- If your injury was caused by a toxic chemical, you could bring a claim against the manufacturer.
- If you were driving a vehicle for a work duty and are injured by another driver, you may be able to seek compensation from the at-fault party.
- If the owner of the building you work in failed to maintain a safe premise and you are injured as a result, the building owner may be held liable.
Our Santa Ana worker's comp lawyers can evaluate the details of your accident to see whether you qualify for a third-party claim. We can discuss your sources of compensation and work with you to seek a fair financial recovery.
