Workers' Comp & Accidents
Accidents happen. Sometimes, no matter how careful we may be, we may find ourselves seriously injured because of another's carelessness or simply because we were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Fortunately workers' compensation covers workplace accidents of all kinds on a "no-fault" basis. This means that the injured worker does not need to prove that someone else was to blame in order to recover workers' comp benefits. The worker need only prove that the accident was work-related; that is, that it occurred at the workplace or while the worker was performing the duties associated with his or her job. Some examples of workplace accidents may include:scaffolding accidents, explosions, injuries caused by falling objects,
electrocution, construction site accidents, slip and fall accidents and work-related car accidents. We deal with claims of this kind throughout Riverside and the surrounding areas. Click here to read more about work accidents and workers' compensation.

What is workers' compensation?
Workers' compensation is a system that essentially serves to even the balance between and employee and employer in the event of any work-related injury. In exchange for no-fault coverage for all work injuries, employees are prohibited from suing their employers for these injuries. One key advantage of the workers' compensation system in Riverside, California is that it offers no-fault coverage. This means, regardless of the circumstances of a work accident or injury, the injured worker does not need to prove that someone else was to blame in order to seek financial compensation.
