Work Accident Lawyers

California has two types of work-related injury cases:

1. Workers Compensation

Workers’ compensation laws allow employees to receive financial recovery for their injuries sustained during work-related activities, as long as their injury was not sustained while engaging in 'horseplay'. Payment is for medical costs, lost wages, and disability.

Employee doesn't need to prove someone was at fault.

2. Work-related Injury (Negligence)

In a work-related personal injury claim, the employee must have evidence of a defendant’s 'negligence' and that a 'duty of care' was breached. The defendant could be the employer, a co-worker, or a any responsible third party such as a manufacturer. These cases generally have a much greater payout, and a skilled attorney is required.

Employee does need to prove someone was at fault.
