Tarzana, California Workers' Compensation Lawyer
People who are injured while on the job face a very difficult situation. There is a specific process that needs to be followed in order for that injured worker to obtain the benefits that are due to him or her under California law. Unfortunately, many people are not familiar with this process and in the meantime some workers will be tempted to simply fight through an injury in hopes that it goes away. Most of the time, this is not what happens. People who attempt to take this path often find themselves unable to work and they are not receiving the proper treatment all while their income suffers immensely.
Ernest A. Buongiorno is a California workers' compensation lawyer who has seen this situation many times in the 25 years that he has been representing injured workers. Mr. Buongiorno advises people who are injured in the workplace to immediately report the incident to the employer and then to contact a workers' compensation attorney to make sure that his or her legal rights are fully protected and enforced.
The Reality of Injuries Occurring on the Job
One of the reasons that so many laws and technicalities are in place in California regarding injured workers is because history has seen too many situations where those involved are not working for the benefit of those harmed. Some employers may not be interested in providing all of the benefits that should be available to workers and some insurance companies are not interested in approving costly treatments and other benefits. While the laws in place are of help, they also need to be properly enforced.
