Recovering the maximum compensation possible can be a difficult task. In most cases, injured employees can file for workers’ compensation benefits. It may only cover medical bills, but not loss of income, and pain and suffering. However, if a third party was at fault, such as a property owner, architect, or an equipment manufacturer, then you may be eligible to obtain additional compensation for your injuries.

If you have any questions or concerns about injuries suffered on the job, contact our Chico injury attorney and schedule your complimentary consultation today.
