A work injury can happen at any point on the job.

It is critical for all California workers to understand that worker’s compensation is not the only option for financial recovery. Workers who have been hurt due to negligence may be able to seek larger or additional compensation through the civil court system in personal injury claims.
If your accident was caused by someone else’s negligence or malicious intent, consult with a workers’ compensation attorney before filing for workers’ compensation. Another legal path to the best possible settlement may be in your best interests.
Legal Protection for Employees Filing for Workers’ Compensation
Injured workers should never be hesitant to file workers’ compensation claims for fear of retaliation from their employers.
