HOW TO FIND OUT IF YOUR EMPLOYER HAS

WORKERS’ COMPENSATION INSURANCE?


WORKERS’ COMPENSATION INSURANCE? If you want to seek workers’ compensation for your work-related physical or stress-related injury, the question, “Does my employer even have workers’ comp insurance?” has probably crossed your mind once or twice.


FOUR CATEGORIES This is a good question to ask yourself and a Los Angeles stress related injuries attorney, who would perform a background check on your employer to see if he/she can be classified as any of these four categories: 1)Insured; 2)Self-Insured; 3)Legally Uninsured; 4)Illegally Uninsured. So knowing beforehand if your employer does or does not carry workers’ compensation insurance coverage is important before reporting your workplace injury and seeking compensation to prevent unnecessary delays.


WHY YOUR EMPLOYERS NEEDS WORKERS’ COMPENSATION INSURANCE “But why cannot I get my workers’ compensation claim approved by my employer without the insurance company?” this is the question, here at the Law Offices of Kropach & Kropach, hear way too often. Let the Los Angeles workers’ compensation attorney explain.


TYPES OF INSURED EMPLOYERS IN CALIFORNIA There are four categories of employers’ workers compensation insurance. Having no workers’ comp insurance coverage whatsoever is considered to be “illegally uninsured,” and makes it practically impossible for you to collect workers’ comp benefits without seeking the legal advice of a Los Angeles stress related injuries attorney.


WHAT IF YOUR EMPLOYER DOES NOT HAVE INSURANCE? There are also employers who can be legally uninsured, but there are not many of them in California. Illegally uninsured employers, on the other hand, are quite prevalent in Los Angeles and elsewhere in California. While an illegally uninsured employer may agree to pay for your workplace injuries while bypassing the workers’ compensation system, many uninsured employers are reluctant to cooperate.
