Benefits Offered to Injured Workers

Several benefits are available to injured workers in California. Depending on the nature of the injury, you may not be eligible for every possible benefit. For example, one worker may need medical benefits and temporary disability, while another may be entitled to permanent disability. We can evaluate your situation and help you file a claim for the benefits you require for your injury.

The benefits available under Workers’ Compensation Law include:

  • Medical Expenses – The medical benefits under workers’ compensation cover the hospital care, decal treatments, and rehabilitation that are required to treat the injury.

  • Temporary Disability – If you miss more than three days of work for an injury, you will receive temporary disability benefits at a rate of two-thirds of your average weekly salary. This can continue for up to two years.

  • Permanent Disability – If your impairment is permanent, you may be eligible for permanent disability, based on the percentage of your disability, age, and occupation.

  • Vocational Training and Rehabilitation – In some cases, injured workers are eligible for a voucher to pay for training for displaced workers, so you can train for a new job.

  • Death Benefits – This is paid to surviving family members when an accident at work results in the death of an employee.

The specific benefits, formulas used to calculate disability, and other requirements can be confusing. It is best to have a knowledgeable Montebello work injury attorney on your side. We will help you determine the benefits to which you are entitled and guide you through the process.
