If you have suffered an on the job injury and are suffering physically, emotionally, and/or financially as a result, you can likely qualify for benefits under California's workers compensation laws.
In California, as in other states, those who get injured accidentally at the workplace or while performing work-related duties off their employer's property, are entitled to collect a compensatory claim from their employer's state-mandated workers compensation insurance company.
But even when you have a valid claim and a basic idea of how California's workers comp system works, the details of which rules apply for particular injury types and of how to file and go through the whole process till you receive your claim, can be very complex.
There is no need, generally, to prove fault to collect on workers comp benefits, but if an employer was negligent, it's possible that fact could relevant in other respects. Plus, extreme negligence or self-inflicted injuries on the part of an employee could cancel his/her right to compensation.
Workers compensation will cover medical expenses stemming from an on-the-job injury, loss of income, retraining costs, expenses related to permanent injuries, and benefits to the survivors of one killed in an on the job fatality.
Wages are generally replaced at 2/3 of the average wage before the injury, but with a maximum cap applying too. And you cannot sue your employer for an injury you already collected workers comp benefits on.
