Employees are entitled to medical & hospital benefits from workers comp.

California employers are required by law to have workers compensation to protect their employees if they are injured on the job or while performing their work duties. Workers compensation is a type of insurance program that will cover an injured employee’s medical expenses, lost wages and possibly more. Anton Law Group is here to help employees get the workers compensation benefits that they are entitled to when injured in the workplace.

All employees deserve to work in a safe environment with proper protection. Unfortunately, there are many workers that are injured in the workplace due to unsafe working conditions or negligence by their employers. Some injuries are so severe that they can affect a person’s ability to function physically and prevent them from returning back to work to earn a living.

When employees experience serious injuries on the job, they may begin to worry about what it will cost in medical expenses or lost pay from the time off work to recover. The expenses they may not even consider are the costs for the treatment of their injuries for the months or even years it might take for recovery. If an employer’s insurance company makes an offer to settle the claim for a certain amount of money, it may not be enough to treat the injury later on down the road. Accepting the settlement releases the employee’s right to file a claim for more compensation later when needed.

At Anton Law Group, our experienced workers compensation attorneys provide legal assistance to injured employees who will need extended medical care for months or years into the future. We help obtain the benefits that they will need to help them handle any hospital and/or medical costs as they recover.

Workers compensation benefits should cover all work-related injury medical costs, including:

  • Hospitalization
  • Surgery
  • Medication
  • Physical therapy/ Rehabilitation training
  • Blood work, lab tests, MRIs and X-Rays
  • Medical equipment or devices
  • Follow-up visits
  • Lost earnings or wages
  • Future loss of earning capacity for permanent injury
