What Benefits Am I Entitled To?
Under California workers’ compensation laws, people who have suffered on-the-job injuries are entitled to the following benefits:
- Medical treatment: If the injury was job-related, all medical expenses are covered, including the cost of examinations, diagnostic tests, medication, surgery and physical therapy.
- Wage loss: Injured workers are entitled to temporary disability payment equal to two-thirds of their average weekly wage, subject to mandatory weekly maximums.
- Disability: If an injury leaves you permanently disabled, your compensation is determined by a rating that takes into account the severity of the injury, your age and health, and the restrictions a doctor places on you.
- Vocational rehabilitation: If you are no longer able to perform your old job duties, but able to work another job, workers’ compensation benefits will cover some of the costs of training.
