Types of Benefits That Come with Workers’ Compensation in California

If you are injured at work and have filed a Workers' Compensation claim, you may be wondering what benefits you are entitled to. To claim your benefits, you need to make sure your claim is filed before the deadline. Having an attorney by your side will ensure the process goes smoothly and you get the compensation you deserve.

Medical Expenses

Workers’ Compensation is designed to cover your medical expenses in the event of an accident while you’re at work. Your insurance may not cover all of your expenses and if it happened on company time, it shouldn’t be expected to.

Partial or All Lost Wages

If your injury prevents you from returning to work, you may also be entitled to all or at least part of your lost wages. Your ability to work will determine how much of your lost wages will be covered by your Workers’ Compensation insurance. Your attorney will be able to help you calculate an approximate amount.

Training

If you are no longer able to do the same type of work as before, your Workers’ Compensation may cover the training you need to learn a new skill. You may have to complete an evaluation to determine what type of work you are capable of doing before you are allowed to take any new training.
