Workers compensation benefits available
The workers’ compensation law in California allows employees who are injured at work to receive the benefits available based on the injury suffered. Such benefits include:
- Payment of medical bills (hospitalization, medicines, special exams, surgeries, and therapies);
- Wages lost
- Permanent benefits for total disability
- Temporary partial disability benefits
- Permanent partial disability benefits
- Payments for vocational rehabilitation.
Workers Compensation Laws
For purposes of workers’ compensation claims, California is a state without fault. This means that regardless of whether or not you were at fault in the work accident that caused the injuries, your employer is obliged to provide you with the most appropriate medical care for the treatment of the injuries. The employer is responsible for the injuries suffered by the worker, without requiring its negligence to be established as in states with failure or in cases of personal injury.
The only requirement to request and receive workers’ compensation benefits is that the injury/illness has been caused in the workplace and that the employee appears on the company’s payroll. Most employers must purchase a workers’ compensation insurance policy, which serves precisely to treat accidents or occupational diseases. If they do not, California laws also establish a series of penalties and fines for those irresponsible employers.
The workers’ compensation lawyer can explain what other alternatives there are to receive necessary medical treatment. It will also help you throughout the claim and negotiation process with the employer or your insurance company.
