We Work For The Survivors Of Workplace Accidents
California workers’ compensation is the employer’s legal obligation to pay compensation benefits to workers hurt on the job. Failing to report a workplace injury to an employer until termination or layoff may result in no workers’ compensation coverage.

What Are Some Common Workplace Injuries?
Injuries from your job that may lead to a workers’ compensation claim could be a one-event occurrence, such as a back injury caused by a fall, chemical-caused skin burns, or a car accident caused by injury during job-related driving.
Repeated workplace exposure resulting in injury may also lead to a workers’ compensation claim. Such instances could include loss of hearing resulting from constant exposure to loud noise. It could also include injuring a body part such as the hands, arms, neck, or back resulting from repetitive job-related motion. We have helped clients with all of these:
- Incidents involving motor vehicles
- Fires and explosions
- Slips, trips, and falls
- Harmful-substance exposure
- Stuck, compressed by, or caught-in equipment or objects
- Overexertion in lowering or lifting
- Intentional or unintentional injury by persons or animals
Some stress-related workplace injuries may be covered by California workers’ compensation, but not all.
