Workers’ compensation is a “no-fault” system. That means that you do not have to prove that your employer did anything wrong to get benefits. It also goes both ways—you can still get benefits even if your work injury was partially or even entirely your fault. Whether you are forgetful, careless, or inattentive, workers’ compensation benefits will still be available to you. Call a workers’ compensation attorney in Los Angeles to learn more about your rights after a work accident.
If the workplace injury occurs because you were messing around, your employer may not have to give you benefits. Schedule a free consultation with workplace injury lawyers in Los Angeles to explore your legal rights.
