How Can I Get Compensation Following an Industrial Workplace Accident?
There are generally two methods to obtain compensation if you are an injured worker in California.
Benefits from Workers’ Compensation
In California, most firms must maintain a workers’ compensation insurance policy. You are entitled to benefits for your medical expenses and lost income if you are harmed at work, and your employer provides insurance. In most instances, filing a Workers’ Compensation case is your only method of obtaining compensation and medical treatment for your injury.
Filing A Personal Injury Lawsuit
Another choice you may have is to bring a personal injury lawsuit. Can you start a lawsuit against your employer? Maybe if they don’t carry workers’ compensation insurance or if their coverage doesn’t cover you. If your injury was caused by your industrial employer’s egregious carelessness or willful misconduct, you might also be able to sue them.
As an alternative, you might be able to get financial help from a negligent third party. For illustration, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer if you were hurt at work by a dangerous piece of heavy equipment.
What Kind Of Compensation Can I Expect If I’m A Victim Of An Industrial Accident?
After an industrial accident, it’s common to feel overwhelmed. The expenses could be too much for you to manage alone. Thankfully, you may be able to pursue financial compensation from your employer, a workers’ compensation insurance plan, or a careless third party.
Benefits From Workers’ Compensation
Workers’ Compensation claims provide both medical treatment and monetary compensation for those injured on the job. Regardless of whether or not the insurance company accepts or denies your case, injured workers are often neglected by the insurance carrier.
Frequently, injured workers are not provided the medical attention needed, the monetary compensation for lost wages, and are denied what they’re entitled to. Without extensive knowledge regarding how to navigate the claim process, many may find the Workers’ Compensation process to be arduous and confusing. It’s important to seek legal counsel at the beginning of your case.
Lawsuit For Personal Injury
You have the right to request economic and non-economic damages in a lawsuit you submit. This could involve funding for:
- Distress and Suffering
- Emotional Angst
- Life Altering Changes

Do I Have A Certain Amount Of Time To File An Industrial Accident Claim?
You must move swiftly to collect money from a workers’ compensation program. After your workplace injury, you have 30 days to report your employer and insurance provider. Waiting could result in you losing money. Injured workers must file their case within one year of the injury.
There is still a short window of time to launch a lawsuit if you want to do so. The two-year statute of limitations applies to cases involving bodily harm. You will forfeit your right to request compensation if you don’t submit your claim to the court by the deadline.
