Orange County Workplace Injury Attorney
Most of us spend the majority of our waking hours at work. We should feel entitled to know that our workplace is well-maintained and that we’re provided all the tools and protections we need to do our jobs safely. When you get hurt while doing your job, you have a right to seek California workers’ compensation benefits to help you afford your medical treatment and make up for work missed due to your injuries.
Even when you have a right to compensation, it isn’t always easy to get the money you need from insurers who profit by denying workers’ claims. Contact an experienced Orange County workers’ compensation lawyer at Invictus Law to find out how an attorney can help you get your claims paid after a workplace accident.
What kinds of workplace injuries are covered in California?
When you think of the sorts of injuries covered by a workers’ compensation claim, you might imagine injuries from physical labor, such as:
- ladder falls
- electrocution or electrical burns
- machine accidents
- strains and sprains from lifting
However, California workers’ compensation covers far more than just accidents suffered on construction sites or other types of manual labor.
Workers can seek compensation for the following injuries when suffered on the job or due to their work:
- Repetitive motion injuries or repetitive stress injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome
- Emotional or psychological injuries, such as post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, sleep disturbances, or chronic anxiety caused by work
- Aggravation of a prior injury
- Injuries or illnesses caused by chemical exposure
- Damage to hearing or vision suffered on the job over months or years of work
