Workers Compensation - Salinas
The Salinas office of Amos, Dittrich & Ushana represents construction workers, agricultural workers, and other employees who have suffered on-the-job injuries in Monterey County. Our goal is to help injured employees and their loved ones recover the maximum amount of workers’ compensation benefits to which they are entitled under the law.
On-the-Job Injuries Occur with Frequency
Many Salinas workers are employed in industries or hold job positions that involve dangerous work conditions, such as working at great heights, working on construction sites, operating heavy farming machinery, handling hot raw materials, and working with hazardous substances and chemicals. California employers are required to keep people employed in these positions as safe as possible by providing proper training, safety equipment, and adequate ventilation. Unfortunately, however, workers frequently suffer physical injuries due to industrial and agricultural accidents, such as back injuries, bone fractures, burns, and sometimes death.
Even employees who work in inherently safer office environments are commonly injured due to repetitive motions, such as typing, eye strain, slipping and falling, and lifting heavy items. The attorneys at Amos, Dittrich & Ushana also have extensive experience representing employees who suffer from these types of ailments as well.
Please see our workers' compensation help center page for more information about how you may be hurt at work, and what to do after sustaining an injury.
Benefits Cover Industrial Accidents & Workplace Injuries
In order to ensure that employees are protected when accidents occur on the job, California law requires all employers to obtain workers' compensation insurance, which covers both documented and undocumented workers. Such insurance enables employers to pay for injured workers’ care and treatment, as well as other benefits, including:
- Medical expenses
- Temporary disability benefits
- Permanent disability benefits
- Supplemental job displacement benefits
- Vocational rehabilitation
- Death benefits
If you or a loved one has been injured in an industrial or agriculture accident in Salinas, or suffer from a work-related injury or illness, it is your right to receive the maximum amount of benefits to which you are entitled under the law. Please see our workers' compensation overview for more information about these benefits.
