No-Fault Coverage for Work Accidents
One of the primary advantages of workers' compensation is that an injured worker can seek coverage regardless of fault. Workers' compensation is a no-fault system and this means that the employee does not need to prove employer negligence to recover benefits. The only requirement is that the injury be related to the employee's job in some way, whether this is because it occurred at work or was related to the employee carrying out the duties of his or her job.
In addition to no-fault coverage, an injured worker in Palmdale or Lancaster will have the right to prompt, effective medical attention, and up to $10,000 in medical care paid by the employer if a claim is still being reviewed.
