Los Angeles is many things to many people, including a place for sports fans. Whether you love the Dodgers, Lakers, Rams, or Chargers, we know one thing – injuries happen to the people playing those sports, just like injuries happen in regular jobs.
When a sports star gets hurt, they do not have to worry about whether or not they will get paid. They usually have a contract and millions already put aside. Unfortunately, when we get hurt at work, we usually have to rely on workers’ compensation insurance to get us through.
But what happens if a workers’ comp claim is denied or we do not get enough for all of our accident-related expenses?
At the Law Offices of Kropach & Kropach, we will provide you with an experienced Los Angeles workers’ compensation attorney who will investigate your case and work to get you the money you need.
Workplace injuries are not rare. In fact, there were nearly three million nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses reported in 2016. While many of these injuries were relatively minor, many of them were severe and caused people to miss work.
Workplace accidents occur in a variety of ways, many of which you may not think about. While some jobs are more dangerous than others, any employee is susceptible to a workplace injury.
We often think of things like traumatic accidents when it comes to workplace injuries. This can include vehicle accidents, falls, getting struck by objects, or tool mishaps. These certainly do happen at high rates, but we also want you to consider less visible injuries that happen in the workplace that are just as costly.
Repetitive stress injuries are caused by workers repeating the same motions over and over again for a long period of time. These injuries are not always apparent until years after an employee has been on a job because the damage is usually gradual.
Mental health illnesses often arise due to the work environment. While we typically see these in high-stress fields such as law enforcement and social work, we are finding more and more that any pressurized workplace can cause mental health problems. Often, the psychological issues associated with these illnesses manifest themselves in physical symptoms as well.
If you have been injured at work but have been denied workers’ compensation insurance, been fired for reporting a claim, or have not received enough compensation, seek legal assistance immediately. At the Law Offices of Kropach & Kropach, we know how important your work is for you and your family. Many people, especially those living paycheck to paycheck, depend on the guarantee that they will be taken care of in the event of a workplace injury.
