Workers' compensation for injured California workers

Workers' compensation protections are essential for every California worker to understand. Workers' compensation benefits in California protect injured workers and workers suffering from a workplace injury and help them with some of the challenges they face.

A variety of different types of benefits can help injured workers through the difficult process of recovering from a workplace injury. Workers can receive help with medical care and treatment and the costs associated with it; lost wages while the injured worker suffers because of temporary disability; payments for permanent disability if the injured worker is suffering with a permanent disability; and the costs of retraining and vocational rehabilitation if the injured worker is unable to return to their usual type of work because of their workplace injury.

In addition, surviving family members of a worker killed in a fatal workplace accident may also be able to receive death benefits after the loss of their loved one. If surviving family members or injured workers are applying for workers' compensation benefits, it is important for them to understand the process. There are also timelines associated with applying for benefits such as providing 30 days' notice of a workplace injury and a year to file a claim for the harm they have suffered.

Because there can be complexities associated with filing a claim for benefits, and there are also employer requirements to be familiar with, it is important for injured workers to understand the workers' compensation process and how it benefits them. California workers' compensation benefits serve as a valuable resource to injured workers and their families in California.
