Inland Empire Workplace Accident Lawyer
Workers’ Compensation for Any Kind of California Workplace Injury
There are many different ways that you can be injured while on the job. While many injuries are the result of specific situations or accidents, others develop much more slowly. No matter what caused your workplace injury, in California your employer is required to provide benefits when you are hurt at work.
To ensure that you get the benefits you need to pay for your recovery, turn to the powerful legal team at Castillo and Associates. For more than two decades, we have provided injured clients throughout California with the assertive and effective representation that they deserve.
Hurt on the job? Reach Out to Castillo & Associates 7 days a week.
Getting hurt on the job can present serious hardships. Not only do you have to deal with the pain of the injury and the cost of your medical care; you may also be worried about the income you will lose while out of work.
Fortunately, Castillo & Associates is here to put your mind at ease regarding these issues. Our experienced attorneys will help you seek fair and appropriate compensation for your injuries through a workers’ compensation claim and/or a third party liability claim as appropriate. Our experienced lawyers will be able to guide you in the right direction and determine if you have both types of claims or just one of them.
What Type of Claim Applies to My Case?
Workers compensation covers all accidents on the job, even if the accident was your fault. However, if you go this route you will not be able to recover damages for pain and suffering.
If your accident was caused by the negligence of anyone other than your employer, it is typically to your advantage to file a personal injury claim against this third party. Also, in many instances you can do both – a personal injury accident and a workers’ compensation accident claim at the same time. A personal injury claim will allow you to recover a complete range of damages including:
- Past and future medical costs
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Lost income
- Lost earning capacity
