Do you know what your rights are as an injured worker? If you don't, you're not alone. In fact, most workers — regardless of occupation — are only aware that workers' comp exists and that it can help them if they suffer a work-related injury.
Unfortunately, employers and workers' compensation insurance carriers in California are aware of this fact and will sometimes use it to their own advantage.
Don't make the mistake of believing that an employer or insurer will tell you everything you need to know after a workplace accident or that they'll honor their promises to "take care of you" in the future. Report the accident (by law, your employer cannot fire you or retaliate against you for filing a claim). Get the medical care your injuries require. Talk to a lawyer as soon as possible.
