Workers’ Compensation for Paralyzing Injuries

Getting Workers’ Comp Benefits After a Job-Related Spine Injury

If you have suffered a paralyzing injury on the job, you already know that this is a life-changing situation.

  • You may have to relearn how to perform simple, daily tasks.
  • Your medical treatment is extensive.
  • Modifications may be required in order for you to operate your vehicle or access your home. Special accommodations could be needed in your workplace, or you may need to find an entirely new occupation.

If you have sustained such an injury on the job, do not face this challenge alone. You need professional legal representation, and our Fresno paralysis lawyer is ready to help you obtain the maximum benefits you are entitled to under California workers' compensation laws.

What Injuries Cause Paralysis?

There are various types of injuries that you can experience in the workplace that may lead to paralysis:

  • Falling from a ladder or other height while working construction
  • Getting in a car accident while driving a company car
  • Getting crushed by heavy machinery

If you have suffered a paralysis injury due to a work accident, we can help you recover compensation through workers' compensation.

What Workers' Comp Benefits Can I Claim?

Workers injured on the job are generally entitled to seek workers' comp benefits, regardless of who was at fault for the accident. The 4 basic types of benefits are:

  • medical benefits
  • disability benefits
  • supplemental job displacement benefits
  • death benefits.

Workers' comp pays for 100% of medical costs for injured workers, until maximum medical improvement (MMI) is reached. This is the level at which your physician determines that no further improvement is expected, even with continued medical treatment.

At that point, in the case of permanent disability, your physician will assign you a disability rating. That number, along with other factors, will be used to determine the permanent disability benefits you may be entitled to receive. The insurance company might try to reduce the amount of your workers' compensation settlement. You need an experienced paralysis attorney in Fresno to negotiate on your behalf and fight for your rights.
