We go to work every day hoping that it will pass by quickly, so we can go home to the things we love like our family or for the single folks, Netflix and chilling. There are some whose jobs are not a total bust. Some people truly love their jobs, but at the end of the day even if you aren’t the biggest fan of your job, you hope that your job likes you back. Every day you get up and spend time at your job. Instead of spending time elsewhere doing other things, you dedicate your time to getting up and getting dressed to attend your job. Some days you may be late. Some days you may leave early. Regardless, your commitment to your job is a big sign that you are in it for the long haul. So when you get injured on the job, you can only hope that your job is there for you.
Complications With Worker’s Compensation
You probably don’t remember, but when you first started your job you were given an orientation to the job. In this orientation, you were provided various materials that tell you what your job entails and how to more efficiently do your job. Some of these materials may be about workers compensation. In California, it is mandatory that every business purchase some kind of worker’s compensation. It is also mandatory that your job tells you the options you have for worker’s compensation. If you get injured on the job and you are told that worker’s compensation does not exist or that it will not cover your injury then you need to speak with our San Diego work injury attorney at Hiden, Rott, and Oertle, LLP.
The complications that arise with Worker’s compensation usually arise in the paperwork. When filing a workers compensation claim there are dates and data that need to be written in a detailed fashion. If you were injured on the job but did not tell your job immediately then there may be a complication on what injury was really committed at your job and at what time. Even if the dates and details are correct there could be an issue with what the insurance company says it will cover and what it should cover. You may think you are getting compensated, but insurance companies could tell you something different than what you need to know. At the end of the day, insurance is just a business and they are in the way of looking out for their bottom line.
