What is Workers’ Compensation?
Workers’ compensation is insurance that provides medical and/or cash benefits for workers injured directly from their job.
Employers pay for this insurance, not employees. In fact, employers are not permitted to require employees to contribute to the cost of compensation. Weekly cash benefits and medical care are paid by the employer’s insurance carrier, as directed by the California Workers’ Compensation Board. The California Workers’ Compensation Board is a state agency that processes claims. If Board intervention is necessary, it will determine whether that insurer will be reimbursed for medical and/or care cash benefits, and the amounts payable.
What if I’m injured on the job?
Step 1. Immediately report the injury to your employer
Step 2. Check to make sure your employer documents the injury
Step 3. Contact a local workers’ compensation attorney to file your claim
Step 4. Get a doctor’s evaluation to determine the fair amount of benefits you are entitled to.
