Regardless of the type of work you do, every job comes with the inherent risk of injury. Whether you are a construction worker, a laborer operating heavy machinery, a factory employee lifting heavy weights, a warehouse worker operating forklifts or a management analyst with a desk job, there is always the danger of job-related injuries and illnesses. Workers' compensation is designed to provide benefits and care for workers who have been injured on the job. Over the decades, workers' compensation laws have expanded to include not just injuries suffered on the job, but also illnesses caused by conditions at the workplace.

How Does Workers' Compensation Help?
Workers' compensation provides a number of benefits for injured workers including reimbursement of medical expenses, recovery of lost wages and compensation for temporary and permanent disabilities. Depending on the nature and circumstances of your case, workers may also be able to receive vocational retraining to return to the workforce. When workers are killed on the job or die due to an occupational illness, dependents or family members are usually eligible to receive monetary benefits as well. Workers' compensation covers some, but not all, stress-related (psychological) injuries caused by your job.
Knowing Your Rights as an Employee
It is important that workers are aware of their critical rights when it comes to workers' compensation. Some of those rights are as follows:

What Steps Should You Take?
Workplace injuries can be extremely traumatic, both physically and emotionally. However, there are a number of steps workers would be well advised to take in the aftermath of an injury in order to protect their rights. First, it is important that you report the injury to your supervisor and make it clear to him or her that the injury was caused by work or occurred on the job. If your injury or illness developed gradually, report it as soon as you learn that it was caused by your job. California law requires workers to report injuries or illnesses within 30 days.
Make sure your supervisor prepares an accident report. If your supervisor won't do that, then, you should write a letter stating the facts of your injury and give a copy of the letter to your supervisor. The report or letter should have important details including the date, time and location of the incident, who was present at the time and the type of injury that was caused by the incident. Be sure to keep a copy of this report for your records.
Get emergency medical treatment if necessary. If it is an emergency, call 911 or go to the emergency room right away. Your employer must make sure you have access to emergency treatment right away. You may have to a doctor who is approved by your employer's insurer. Make sure you follow the doctor's directions. Contact an experienced workers' compensation lawyer who will help ensure your rights are protected every step of the way and that you are fairly compensated for your injuries and losses.
