If a person is searching for a Chatsworth Workmans Compensation injury attorney, chances are that the injured victim either lives in Chatsworth or was injured in Chatsworth. An injured worker typically works for an employer, by whom of which is entitled, under the California Labor & Employment Laws, to obtain and provide Workmans Compensation insurance.
An injured worker in Chatsworth can file a Workmans Compensation case due to an injury by accident, continuous trauma, injury/altercation, or occupational disease while on duty.
There are many jobs that have physical and mentally challenging job duties and it can be foreseeable that a work injury may occur while working. When an employee sustains an injury while working the injured worker may be eligible to receive Workmans Compensation benefits which include medical treatment, Utilization Review matters, future medical care, Vocational Rehabilitation/retraining, reimbursement for medical and travel expenses, temporary and permanent disability benefits.
If you are an employee and have been injured while on duty, you should seek medical attention immediately. You should also notify your employer of this injury so that it is recorded on file. Your employer may provide you with a DWC-1 claim form. This claim form is important because it legally states that an injury has been sustained while working and the Workmans Compensation insurance is notified. No harm can come to you or your employer for filling out this form.
While treating and recovering from your injury, you should keep track of all your medical appointments, communications (such as phone calls - when and who you talk to and what was discussed in the conversation), witness contact information and statements, any type of injury reports and other information that may be important to use as evidence in your case. Thereafter, you should contact a Workmans Compensation attorney who represents injured workers in Chatsworth for further instruction.
