Getting hurt at work is not something anybody wants to happen. However, data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) states that there were approximately 2.8 million workplace injuries in the latest reporting year in the US. Many of these injuries were severe. In California, we know that there were nearly 500,000 total workplace injuries during that same reporting year.

We also know that there are various injuries that are not as immediately apparent as the traumatic injuries mentioned above. This can include repetitive stress injuries, hearing and vision loss, respiratory illnesses, workplace cancers, and more. These injuries usually occur after a worker is exposed to hazardous workplace conditions over longer periods of time.
There are often times when an employer or the workers’ compensation insurer delays or denies an injured worker’s claim. If this happens, the injured worker may need an attorney to assist with filing an appeal to ensure they receive the compensation they are entitled to. An injured worker may also need an attorney if they are not receiving the medical care required after a workplace injury.
