If You Are Injured on the Job and Can No Longer Work

If you can no longer work in your chosen career due to a work-related injury, Sacramento Workers’ Compensation Attorneys can help you understand your options. Our attorneys have helped countless injured workers in California who are facing a worst-case scenario following an on-the-job injury: no longer being able to earn a living in the occupation they held before the injury or work-related condition.

What If I Can’t Work?

If You Are Injured on the Job and Can No Longer WorkOur workers’ compensation attorneys are most often asked this question. Work-related injuries can strike unexpectedly, altering the course of our lives in an instant. The immediate aftermath of a job-site accident or job-related injury diagnosis is often filled with shock and uncertainty. The daily work routine is disrupted, replaced by doctors’ appointments, physical therapy sessions, and paperwork. In addition to those challenges, as well as physical pain and discomfort, there’s a looming question: What happens if I can no longer work?

The answer to this question depends on several factors, including the severity of the injury, the injured person’s profession, and any legalities that may be particular to a specific industry. In many cases, workers’ compensation insurance provides financial support for medical expenses and a portion of lost wages, but long-term or permanent disability may be more challenging to secure. In that situation, having an experienced and knowledgeable workers’ compensation attorney can make all the difference for you and your family’s future.

Financial Stability

Without the ability to work, income may dwindle or cease entirely, placing strain on household finances. Bills pile up, savings diminish, and worries about the future intensify. In these moments, accessing additional support, such as disability benefits or social welfare programs, becomes crucial for maintaining basic needs. In your free consultation with one of our workers’ compensation attorneys, we will do our best to explain your options.

Social Changes

The impact of a work-related injury extends beyond a person’s finances. Loss of employment can trigger emotional upheaval and seriously impact a family’s sense of security and happiness. For others, the loss of being able to earn a living can turn a person’s sense of connection to other aspects of their life upside down, mainly if work life and social circles include many of the same people. The sudden absence of this structure can lead to feelings of isolation, depression, and anxiety.

Public Benefits

Eligibility for public benefits will vary depending on the injured person’s job and the circumstances surrounding the injury or illness. In California, several government programs may be an option.

Securing any benefits you are eligible for is vital to protecting your family’s security and your own if you cannot earn an income. To increase your chances of uncovering all of your benefit options, hiring a highly qualified and experienced workers’ compensation lawyer is one of the most important steps you can take as soon as possible following your injury. 

Some of the benefit programs you may be eligible for include:

If your benefits are denied, your workers’ compensation attorney will help you appeal and meet all paperwork requirements and deadlines.

A Lawyer You Can Count On is Crucial

If you are facing a career-ending injury, you need to know your options, and you need legal support you can count on. Our workers’ compensation attorneys are supported by professional investigators who will not stop until all the facts are known in the pursuit of evidence that will strengthen your case for permanent disability.

If you’ve suffered a workplace injury, you’ve probably required a team of professionals to help you get back on the road to recovery, including healthcare and rehabilitation specialists, who have the same goal in mind: helping you get back to good health. But if your injury has effectively ended your career, you will need legal help.
