Getting injured on the job is a set back for everyone involved. As a worker, it is a set back because you are now having to take time off of work in order to recover from your injury. A catastrophic injury can literally change your life. Then there is your family to consider. Your family and friends do not only depend on you financially but emotionally and physically. If you are injured or catastrophically injured, you are in no place to be there for your family physically, emotionally, or financially. Last, your employment just lost a loyal worker. Despite whatever you may tell yourself, you are a valued employee and if you get injured then your workplace suffers too. So what do you do? What happens if you are injured on the job?
Here are a few basic steps to keep in mind when filing for a workers compensation claim. California requires that every business purchase workers compensation insurance.
