Who can file a Head & Brain Injuries claim in Los Angeles?
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.
