Murrieta Workers Compensation Attorney
When an employee has been injured on the job regardless of fault they are entitled to Workers Compensation Benefits. As a Murrieta Workers Compensation Attorney I can guide you through the process. These benefits are meant to help support the injured worker with the issues that usually result from a work injury. First and most importantly the injured worker should receive immediate medical care for their injury. Second the injured worker should start receiving temporary disability payments from their employer to offset their lost earnings. And finally after the employee has recovered and become permanent and stationary they should receive a lump sum permanent disability payment to compensation for their permanent injury or disability. If you have been injured on the job first report the injury to your employer and fill out Workers’ Compensation Claim Form (DWC 1) & Notice of Potential Eligibility.
After reporting the work injury, then contact my office for a free consultation where we can discuss your injury, claim, and rights in detail.

Specific Workers Compensation Injury
Worker injuries come in many different ways, a specific workers compensation injury happens when a one-time event causes the injury. These injuries are usually easily identified as they involve a traumatic injury, examples can include, a vehicle accident, a trip or fall, being hit by an object, something being dropped on a body part, a lifting injury etc.
Cumulative Workers Compensation Trauma Injury
Cumulative Trauma worker injuries can be a little tougher to recognize but are just as common. A cumulative trauma injury occurs over time anywhere from days to years. The injury is caused normally by repetitive work, such as typing, assembly, lifting, standing etc. The bottom line of these types of injuries is that the job that you are doing over a period of time has result in your injury.
