RIVERSIDE LAWYERS FOR INJURED WORKERS

The law of California has made up a system of benefits for employees who suffer a job-related injury. The workers’ comp lawyers at The Law Offices of Dr. Peter M. Schaeffer have a vast knowledge of the differences between workers’ comp & other potential advantages, such as unemployment benefits. We help workers & their dependents understand their legal opportunities and provide guidance during the process of filing a claim for workers’ comp benefits.

WORKERS’ COMPENSATION vs. UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS

Workers’ comp benefits are intended to compensate injured employees for salaries that they are missing due to their work injuries. Workers who’re hurt in the course & scope of employment can recover a range of benefits for partial or total disability and benefits for medical care. According to the California Workers’ Comp Act, the employer is responsible to workers for paying benefits either directly or through a workers’ comp insurer.

Unemployment benefits, in contrast, are created to support individuals while they are looking for a new position. While many injured workers may be unable to return to their previous employment, they may be capable of working in a different, less physically difficult role. This ability to work is necessary to a claim for unemployment benefits. In various situations, by receiving unemployment payments, the injured worker would, in the eyes of the workers’ comp insurance company, be receiving two wages at once. Nevertheless, there are exceptions to this rule. Workers’ comp employees who have had their claim for benefits denied. They may be entitled to unemployment benefits if they’re unable to return to their previous position due to their injury & were forced to resign.

In many cases, workers are needed to apply for other positions, maybe those that are less physically demanding. While workers may not be currently working due to their injury, their position may be on hold until they are recovered & return to the workplace. Unemployment benefits are available to individuals who don’t have a work position to which they can return. Assembling unemployment benefits may negatively affect workers’ comp cases. The credibility of a claim rests on the fact that the worker is unable to work due to a work-related injury. Unemployment benefits are available to people who’re willing and ready to work but can’t locate a paying job.
