It’s a common misconception that your injury has to be on-site in order to receive workers compensation. You can file for workers compensation if you are participating in any work-related activity and you get injured. There are two exceptions to this claim. You cannot deliberately try to harm either yourself and/or others and receive workers compensation benefits. Another exception to this is that you cannot make a claim if you are under the influence of alcohol when your injury occurred. Consult with Los Angeles workers compensation attorneys at Koszdin, Fields, Sherry & Katz. Their qualified and experienced team understands that this is a difficult time for you, and they want to help secure the compensation you need.
