What Should I Do If I Am Injured on the Job?

If you are injured while working in Santa Clarita, you need to get treatment immediately. Notify your supervisor of the injury and make sure to follow your company’s guidelines regarding a workplace accident. Failure to report your injury within 30 days to your employer could cause you to lose your workers’ compensation benefits in California. Depending on the job and what contributed to your injury, you may need to file a claim through workers’ compensation or a personal injury lawsuit against a third party. It is your right (and generally in your best interest) to consult with an attorney after a workplace accident.

What Are Common Causes of Workplace Accidents and Injuries?

Workplace accidents can happen at any job. While some industries are more prone to fatal accidents, such as private construction, on the job injuries can occur at any worksite or even in a home office.  According to the National Safety Council, the top three causes of work-related injuries (falls, overexertion, and contact with objects/equipment) account for more than 84 percent of all nonfatal injuries requiring time off. Common causes of workplace accidents include:
  • Slips, trips, and falls
  • Improper lifting and overexertion
  • Contact with objects and equipment
  • Transportation incidents
  • Exposure to harmful substances
  • Fires and explosions
  • Workplace violence

What Types of Injuries Occur at Work?

Workplace accidents can range from minor to life-threatening. In some tragic cases, an employee may be killed while on the job. If your loved one lost their life while working in the SCV, contact our office immediately. You may be entitled to compensation through a wrongful death claim. Injuries that occur at work can include but are not limited to:
  • Debilitating back pain
  • Sprains, strains, and tears
  • Cuts and lacerations
  • Fractures and broken bones
  • Damage to the ears, eyes, or lungs
  • Burn injuries
  • Trauma to the head and neck
Our Santa Clarita workplace accident lawyers can help you get the help you need after an injury while working. Do not wait until it is too late to file a claim for compensation.

How Much Is My Workplace Accident Case Worth?

Every case is different. The value of your case will depend on the circumstances surrounding your injuries, the extent of your injuries, and whether you can return to work. Remember that you should get your case reviewed by a work injury attorney so that they can help calculate your losses, including your lost income and your loss of future earning capacity if you are catastrophically injured. Often employees are afraid to come forward after a workplace injury for fear that they may be fired or demoted. It is against the law for an employer to retaliate against you for reporting an injury that occurs while on the job. It is your responsibility to notify your employer about the accident and to seek medical treatment immediately.
