Obstacles Posed by Worker’s Compensation – Some of the difficulties that individuals face in filing for workers’ compensation include:
- When applying or workers’ compensation, a person will be required to complete a full medical evaluation.
- There is an overlap between Social Security disability benefits and other types of benefits. While these programs have similar elements, workers qualify for workers’ compensation benefits on their first day of employment while Social Security disability is only provided to workers that have a substantial long-term work history.
Third Party Claims – In workers’ compensation, a “third party personal injury claim” refers to a legal action taken against a party other than the employer or the worker’s compensation insurance carrier. This is also known as a “third-party claim.” In rare cases, however, do these benefit cover all of the workers’ expenses. This is frequently a challenging path and often requires the assistance of a knowledgeable work injury attorney in Los Angeles.
