WHAT CALIFORNIA WORK BENEFITS EXISTS?
The workers’ compensation claim you file may provide one of the four benefits listed below.
- Temporary disability covering 2/3 of your gross income
If your medical diagnosis team deems you unfit to work at all for a period of time, you will receive temporary disability benefits. This covers 2/3 of your gross income for the period of time you are out of work, which cannot last more than two years.
- Permanent disability depending on how much you were making
When your ability to perform your job appropriately is gone on a permanent basis, compensation for your claim depends on how much money you would have earned if you kept working in your chosen career field.
- Medical treatment for the injury sustained while on the job
Any short or long-term doctors’ appointments, treatment, and associated costs are covered for the injury sustained while on the job. This always occurs unless the insurance company or the appeals board denies your claim completely. If that happens, your attorney may suggest appealing again.
- Rehabilitation in case of long-term changes in your ability levels
If the injuries sustained at work causes long-term changes in your ability levels, the rehabilitation compensation allows for re-training or necessary skill learning you need to gain sufficient employment once more.
If an injury or other catastrophic event occurs in the workplace that results in an employee’s death, the family of the deceased may file for death benefits with the help of a competent attorney. Contact us to learn more about this situation and your rights.
