Most of our lives are spent working, either in our own businesses for personal profit, or in the businesses of others. Being committed to your job is an admirable thing, but it does not mean you have to show up even when you are sick. Getting sick or having an illness happens to everyone and it is almost unpreventable. If you have gotten sick but did not receive sick days or compensatory days, give a call to our lawyers for more information about how we can represent your case and help get just workers compensation for you. When you’re sick, your priority should be getting better, leave the rest to us.
Illness on the Job
Getting sick on the job is almost impossible to prevent, even if you drink a glass of orange juice every morning and have a kale salad one a week. No one enjoys kale salads, and the chance of a couple bitter leaves preventing you from getting sick are low. When you do get sick, one of the things you do have control over is workers compensation and making sure you get paid days off or that your illness does not affect your professional standing. The Workers Compensation lawyers can help you if you have gotten sick and are interested in receiving workers compensation.
Few people recognize stress as an illness but we do. Stressful situations on the job can have serious repercussions in your physical and mental health. Although each person has a different response to stressful situations, stress can affect everyone, especially in accumulation and after years of going unattended. If you have high levels of stress or suffer from a stress-related illness, let us know and we’ll investigate your case to see how we can help you.
If you have a pre-existing condition that inhibits you from completing your job’s tasks, you may be eligible for pre-existing compensation. Depending on the case, our attorneys can represent your claim to protect your right to work despite having a pre-existing condition. After years of experience in the Downey area, we are experienced representing these kinds of cases and can guide you on what you can expect during the process. We believe everyone has equal right to work and should be given equal opportunity, so if you have a pre-existing condition that prevents you from getting coverage or finding a job, let us know and we’ll see what we can do for you. Every case is different, so don’t base your expectations on other people’s experiences.
Mental illness has finally become recognized as a factor in people’s every day life and as an illness that should be considered just like physical illnesses. Our attorneys are ready to talk with you about mental illnesses. Many times, anxiety and stress from a job can lead to depression, anxiety, or other mental states that can be difficult to manage on your own. Give us a call to see if we can help represent your case.
