What is Work Injury?

A work injury is an injury you suffer at work. If you suffer a work injury in California, you are eligible for workers compensation. It doesn’t matter if you’re at your place of work or not when the injury occurs.

For example, if you are making a delivery or pickup for your job, you could still be “at work” and thus any injury you suffer could be eligible for workers compensation.

Work injuries can occur at once or over time. For example, if you drop something on your foot at work, causing an injury, you are eligible for workers compensation. You are also eligible if you develop carpal tunnel syndrome from years of work.

If you believe that you are eligible for workers compensation, we encourage you to reach out to work injury attorney Belal Hamideh for a free case evaluation. He’ll let you know exactly what your claim is worth and how we can help.
