Workers' Compensation Claims for Workplace Accidents in San Francisco
A San Francisco employee who is injured in an on-the job accident is entitled to workers' compensation benefits under California law. A work accident that qualifies for workers' compensation may include virtually any incident, ranging from a minor slip and fall to a catastrophic accident involving a fire or explosion. The type of workplace accident an employee may be at risk of experiencing will vary depending on the field in which he or she works, as well as the particular duties of his or her job. In general, workers in construction, transportation and manufacturing are at a greater risk of involvement in workplace accidents. However, virtually any worker, even one confined to an office building, may experience a work-related accident or an accident at work.

About San Francisco Workers' Comp Accident Claims
Workers' compensation accident claims are different than accident or injury claims that occur outside of the workplace. When a worker is injured in a San Francisco workplace accident, he or she does not need to prove that someone else caused the accident and was therefore at fault. Workers' compensation is a no-fault system, meaning the injured worker need only prove that his or her injury occurred at work or was work-related.
