Expanding Workers' Rights in California
From office buildings to construction sites, every workplace poses its own set of dangers—ways in which workers can become ill or injured. California’s Workers’ Compensation laws provide injured workers with benefits designed to help them receive the medical treatment necessary to recover. And though the Workers’ Compensation system was developed to cover a wide range of work-related injuries and illnesses, the laws are constantly changing. It is imperative that injured workers are represented by experienced, knowledgeable attorneys who specialize in obtaining the full range of benefits to which they are entitled.
