Santa Ana Workplace Accidents Lawyers

If you or a loved one has been injured on the job, the medical bills and lost wages can have a substantial impact on your household’s economic stability. Depending upon the facts and circumstances of the accident or incident that caused your injury, you may be entitled to additional compensation outside of your workers’s compensation coverage. 

Oftentimes, your workplace injury will be covered through your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance provider. These companies work for profits, which they maximize by making the most in premiums from employers they can, while paying as little as possible out on claims filed by injured workers. For help ensuring that the insurance company awards you with the complete damages you need to cover the costs linked to your workplace accident, reach out to a Santa Ana workplace accidents lawyer from the Law Offices of Benjamin Arsenian.

Wrongful Deaths on the Job Can Entitle Family Members to a Wrongful Death Claim 

If you have lost a loved one to a tragic accident on the job, you may have a wrongful death claim. The purpose of a wrongful death claim is to provide your family with compensation for any medical costs linked to the accident, in addition to the lost financial contribution of your loved one to your household. While no amount of money can account for a tragic loss, a wrongful death claim seeks to provide your family with financial support to minimize the economic impact of the loss on your family.
