Injury to the body from direct contact with a high-voltage source. An electric shock can be life-threatening. Get emergency help if the source of the burn is a high-voltage wire or lightning. Rare but life-threatening symptoms include severe burns, muscle pain and contractions, seizures and unconsciousness. Both heartbeat and breathing may be difficult to detect. Even someone with minor injuries or no symptoms should be checked by a doctor for internal injuries.
If you have been injured while working, you may be able to recover benefits that are designed to cover your medical costs and associated expenses. Under Workers’ Compensation law in California, employers in the state must provide Workers’ Compensation insurance coverage in order to protect their workers. When an injury happens at work, you then may file a claim for benefits through your employer’s insurance carrier. These benefits can cover expenses for any needed prosthetics, prescription medications, medical appointments, and other necessary treatments.
In addition to medical expenses, prescription medications and ongoing treatment costs, it is possible to recover monthly disability benefits payments through Workers’ Compensation if you have been temporarily or permanently disabled by your injury. Our lawyers work closely with our clients through every step of the process. If your application for benefits is disputed, we can litigate the matter for you at the administrative hearing in order to try to secure the recovery of benefits in an amount you deserve.
