Nerve damage can occur for several reasons, including repetitive use (carpal tunnel syndrome), trauma, or illness. In some occupations, nerve damage comes with head or spinal trauma, which can cause paralysis, a permanent disability, or wrongful death.
Experts estimate that most injured employees and injured workers with nerve damage can receive compensation or permanent disability benefits to pay for their medical expenses, lost wages, physical therapy, and more. Workers comp settlements may not cover everything, so you must consult with a personal injury attorney for any permanent, total disability. But restrictions like the statute of limitations can make these cases complicated and generally demonstrate the California work comp system’s weakness.

Generally, state law requires employers to put some cash towards an employee insurance system (also known as workers’ compensation) to ensure the employee’s financial safety and physical rehabilitation from insurance companies in the event of an accident. However, certain employees are not eligible for worker’s compensation, including shipbuilders, railroad workers, and ships.
Although the benefits and insurance system varies from state to state, the following are some of the types of payments an injured employee can expect to receive through a worker’s compensation claim:
The biggest drawback of receiving a workers’ compensation claim is that the injured person cannot take legal action or file a lawsuit against their employer. Although workers’ compensation may seem like a convenient offering at the time since it does cover lost wages and medical expenses, a workers’ compensation claim does not compensate an injured person for the pain and suffering, loss of quality of life, and other damages.
You may want to believe that workers’ compensation is there to provide you with money for your loss or sudden traumatic injuries. Still, the workers’ compensation insurance system acts like any other insurance company. They benefit from delaying claims and rejecting them.
