Here are a few of the most frequently asked questions about worker’s compensation:

Q: What benefits are covered by worker’s compensation?
A: There are several basic benefits that are provided by typical worker’s compensation insurance policies. These include: medical care, temporary disability payments, permanent disability payments, supplemental job displacement benefits, and death benefits (if you die due to a workplace injury).

Q: What should I do if I’m hurt at work?
A: One of the most important things you can do when you’re injured is report the incident right away- tell your supervisor and fill out an official report with your employer. Also, seek proper medical care, to treat your injuries. These two actions are critical to your potential worker’s comp benefits.

Q: How can I prevent being injured on the job?
A: Employers in California are required to provide illness and injury prevention training, so make sure you participate in this program, and pay attention to safety rules and tips. If you want more information, you may reach out to Cal/OSHA, or talk to one of your local I&A officers.

Q: Why do I need a worker’s comp attorney?
A: Hiring a good lawyer can ensure that your employer follows through on their financial obligations, and will give you a much greater chance at winning your case. Attorneys can also make sure your forms are filled out correctly, advocate for you with different organizations, and represent you in court if necessary.
