Workers Compensation Entitles
Injured Workers to Benefits,
Regardless of Fault

If you were injured on the job, you are very likely entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. In California, these benefits include:

  • Medical care: Medical care benefits cover treatment for your injury. You will be treated by a doctor in a special network called the Medical Provider Network, and your treatments will be dictated by medical treatment guidelines that detail different types of treatments for common workplace injuries as well as the frequency and duration of these treatments. Medical care benefits also provide reimbursement for travel to and from your medical appointments and any travel you are required to do to pick up prescription medications.
  • Temporary disability benefits: These benefits come into play if you are temporarily unable to work or if you are unable to perform certain aspects of your job and experience reduced wages. Temporary disability benefits are intended to replace the income you would have earned but for your injury.
  • Permanent disability benefits: If you are permanently partially or totally disabled from a workplace injury, you are entitled to payments for loss of future earnings. The amount of the payments you will receive is dependent upon the impairment percentage provided by your treating physician. That percentage will be converted into a permanent disability value and then a dollar value using guides provided by the State of California.
  • Job displacement benefits: If you are unable to return to your previous job, you are eligible for a supplemental job displacement voucher, valued at $6,000, to use for things related to finding a new job, such as licensing and exam fees, tools for training programs, computer equipment, or placement/ resume services. As an alternative to the voucher, your employer may offer you alternative work that meets the following criteria:
  • At least 85% of the salary of your prior job
  • Is a reasonable commuting distance from your home
  • Lasts for at least 12 months
