Your workers’ compensation coverage does not clock out when you clock out at the end of the working day. Workers’ comp benefits are awarded to workers who sustain on-the-job injuries, but what constitutes “on the job” is actually quite ambiguous in Los Angeles and elsewhere in California. While these benefits are supposed to cover the medical expenses and loss of income for employees who get injured in the workplace, in some cases, the definition of “workplace injuries” can be vague.
The extent to which you may or may not be covered by workers’ compensation is not always clear unless you consult with an attorney. Contact the Kropach & Kropach where workers compensation attorney in Los Angeles William Kropach will carefully review your particular case and formulate the most optimal legal strategy to pursue compensation for your on-the-job injuries.
