Work injuries happen every day. Actually, millions of workers get injured each year due to negligence of employers to maintain a dangerous free work environment for their workers. Thousands suffer serious injuries and even wrongful death due to injuries suffered by employees while at work and these serious injurious translate not only to hundreds of thousands in medical costs but also include hundreds of thousands of lost earnings. In California, employees have the right to seek damages for work related injuries against their employers. However, in pursuing workers' compensation claims against their employers, they are only allowed to obtain a specific or set amount of compensation for any and all damages. This is known as the "exclusive remedy rule", where you can only obtain a maximum amount of compensation depending on the enumerated types of injuries. However, this does not mean that you have no other recourse to help you get the right compensation you deserve. If you are not able to claim the maximum compensation from worker's compensation insurance covering your employer, you can also file torts claim or even personal injury law suit against your employer to make sure that you and your family are not made to suffer the burden of paying for all your treatments. In this case, you need to seek immediate legal advice from top California work injury lawyer to help you fight for your rights and obtain remuneration for all your damages.
As an employee, you should be provided by your employer with safe working environment. If, aside from being negligent, your employer intentionally and maliciously caused your injuries by not providing the state and federal mandated minimum requirements for the benefit and safety of their workers, then they can be made liable for additional damages regardless of the "exclusive remedy rule" in California. However, knowing the law and your rights to claim against your employer do not automatically translate to a successful claim. Some employees don't even know what kinds of compensation to claim after a work related injury. This is why, it is always advisable to seek legal help from experienced California work injury attorneys who can definitely help every employee victim of work related accident get the right compensation they deserve from: property damage, actual medical costs, future medical care, loss of earnings, out-of-pocket expenses and even pain and suffering and other non-monetary losses. Employers are protected by insurance companies and even defense lawyers who are adept at frustrating every worker's claims. Hence, it is highly advisable not to try to negotiate on your own. You should leave the legal aspect of your claims to the legal experts and trust expert work injury law firms to help you get the maximum compensation you deserve.
Aside from filing work compensation injury claims against your employer, in California, you can even file third party claims against negligent persons who are not your employer, who directly or indirectly caused your injuries. Third party claim arises when the injury is caused by another person other than your employer, like your co-employees, especially in cases where you are injured due to the negligence of your employment managers or supervisors.
