The Workers Compensation System was designed to protect employees who are injured within the course and scope of employment. All employers must carry Workers Compensation Insurance. Failure to do so will result in employer liability for all medical bills, payment for lost wages, and any other benefits to which the injured employee is entitled under the law.
Additionally, employers who are in violation of the Workers Compensation Insurance Requirement also face severe fines and penalties. Employees cannot legally be required to pay any Workers Compensation premiums.
California is a no-fault liability state. This means that an injured worker will qualify for Workers Compensation Benefits, regardless of any fault on their part.
If you have been injured in a work related accident, it is vital that you retain a highly experienced attorney. Fresno Workers Compensation Attorneys at the Grossman Law Offices have been successfully representing injured workers in Workers Comp matters for more than 40 years.

When an employee is injured on the job, specific requirements must be met prior to the award of Workers Compensation Benefits. The injured employee is required to notify their employer as soon as possible. Failure to do so may impede the employee’s ability to obtain the benefits to which they are entitled, as the employer may claim that the injury is not work related.
Upon notification, the employer must either inform the State of California (if the employer is self-insured) or their Workers Compensation Insurance carrier. After seeking medical assistance, the treating physician must submit a work injury report, setting forth the extent of the injuries.
If emergency treatment is required, your employer is required to ensure that you obtain medical care immediately, and under Workers Compensation Guidelines your employer may direct that you be taken to a specific medical facility.
If you or a loved one has suffered severe or catastrophic injuries, it is crucial that you retain a compassionate and knowledgeable Fresno Workers Compensation Lawyer as soon as possible to ensure that your rights are protected.
