Workers' Compensation Benefits: Your Right to Recovery

California law mandates that all employers carry workers' compensation insurance to offer vital benefits to employees injured on the job.

As a construction worker, you're entitled to these benefits, which cover:

  • Medical treatment expenses
  • Compensation for lost earnings
  • Temporary or permanent disability benefits
  • Death benefits for the families of deceased workers

Workers' compensation is a "no-fault" system, meaning you can receive benefits regardless of who was at fault for the injury. Filing a workers' comp claim is not about suing your employer; it's about claiming the support you're rightfully owed.

Was your workers' comp claim already denied? Do you need help filing an appeal? Call Pacific Workers.

Navigating Third-Party Liability

Sometimes, workers' compensation doesn't fully cover all the costs stemming from a workplace injury. If third parties, such as contractors, equipment manufacturers, or architects (i.e. someone other than your employer), contributed to your injury, you might have the option to file a personal injury lawsuit for additional compensation.

Here are some key points to consider:

  • Identifying third parties: Determine if there are other parties besides your employer who may have contributed to the accident. This could include subcontractors, equipment manufacturers, property owners, or other contractors.
  • Negligence or wrongful conduct: To file a successful third-party liability claim, you typically need to show that the third party was negligent or engaged in wrongful conduct that led to the accident or your injuries.
  • Legal assistance: Consulting with an attorney who specializes in construction accidents is crucial. They can help assess the circumstances, identify potential third parties, and guide you through the legal process.
  • Evidence and documentation: Gathering evidence, such as witness statements, photographs, and documentation of the accident scene, is essential for building a strong case against the third party.
  • Workers' compensation considerations: You may pursue a third-party liability claim in addition to workers' compensation benefits. It's essential to understand how these two processes may work together.
  • Damages: In a successful third-party liability claim, you may be eligible to receive compensation for various damages, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other related costs.

It's crucial to act promptly if you are considering pursuing a third-party liability claim. The statute of limitations sets a time limit for filing personal injury lawsuits. Consulting with a construction accident attorney in Stockton can help you understand your rights, navigate the legal process, and pursue the compensation you may be entitled to.

Common Construction Site Injuries

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) sets forth safety regulations that employers must adhere to. If a site manager's negligence or a subcontractor's oversight led to your injury, you could have a claim against them.

Construction workers frequently suffer from:

  • Falls from heights
  • Repetitive stress injuries
  • Electrocutions
  • Burns and scalds
  • Eye injuries from debris
  • Fractures and broken bones
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Back injuries from lifting
  • Work-related illnesses
