Whereas personal injury is bodily injury occurring outside of work, workers’ compensation refers to an injury sustained in or at your place of work, in this case, in Los Angeles.
The state of California has a workers’ compensation system that provides benefits to employees who have been injured on the job. In fact, in 2012 Governor Brown signed into law a revised workers’ comp bill (Senate Bill 863) that provides increased benefits to those injured at work as well as other cost-savings measures.
If you’ve been injured on the job, the workers’ compensation system is most likely your best option to pursue and to relieve the pain suffered on the job. After you have filed a workers’ compensation claim, the law requires your employer to provide “reasonable medical treatment to cure or relieve work-related injuries and illnesses.” This includes chiropractic treatments at our offices in Los Angeles.
