When you lose consciousness at work, seeking compensation may be the last thing on your mind. In fact, you may not even realize that your employers are able to offer you benefits because you have lost consciousness in their employment. Whether you recover very quickly, or have to go to hospital and receive treatment before you wake up, you may have not only the immediate effects of the loss of consciousness, but also further investigations and treatments to discover the cause of your loss of consciousness, and to remedy it. In order to spare yourself some of the bills involved with a work-related loss of consciousness in Glendale, residents should consider seeking worker’s compensation from their boss’s insurance.
Can I Really Make A Claim?
It is not unusual for workers in California to be completely in the dark when it comes to compensation claims. You may not even realize that your workplace is insured for incidents just like this, and you can recover some of your medical bills if you can establish that you have a work-related injury connected to a loss of consciousness. You might be surprised to learn that you can not only claim for the loss of consciousness, but that you can seek medical bills for the connected investigation and follow on treatment. In fact, whatever type of blackout you have suffered from, if it is related to your workplace, or has been caused by an incident related to your occupation, then you could receive benefits and partial wage payments from your company.
Loss Of Consciousness And Your Work
Of course, for your compensation claim to succeed, you will have to establish that your workplace, or your occupation, has some role to play. For example, if you have suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result of hitting your head in the workplace, that should be sufficient to establish a work-related cause for the blackout. If you are working with chemicals, or there has been some kind of leak in the office, then you can also establish your need for compensation in that manner. Naturally, if your loss of consciousness relates to negligence on your own part, or was not caused by your workplace, then you are not likely to be eligible for insurance compensation claims. However, you need to be able to discuss your claim with an expert attorney before anybody can decide.
