Injured on a construction site and unable to work? Watch this video to learn about construction injuries and workers’ compensation in California.
Is workers’ compensation my only relief after a construction injury?
Just yesterday, a client called and was asking me about workers’ compensation, what it is and what it does.If you are an employer in the state of California and you have even one employee, you are required by the state to carry workers’ compensation insurance. This is insurance that covers employees that are injured on the job. If an employer does not carry workers’ compensation insurance, then you would have a claim against your employer outside of the workers’ compensation system. Workers’ compensation will provide medical benefits such as care and treatment for your injuries, and it will also provide income for you for the time that you have to spend off work due to your injuries.
