Workers Compensation FAQs

Welcome to our California Workers Compensation law and Workmans Compensation information web site. The goals of our site are to inform you about your legal rights if you have suffered a work injury and to make our Workers Compensation lawyers available to assist you. A Workers Compensation lawyer or Workmans Compensation attorney will answer your questions personally when you call!

California Workers Compensation (sometimes called workers comp, workmans comp or workmans compensation) information is important to all employed persons and every injured worker. (En espanol, los defensores de victimas de accidentes laborales.)

Common injuries include those which occur on construction sites or industrial area. If you, or someone you know, has had a work-related injury or industrial accident, and feel that it should be covered by Workers Comp, we hope that you will find this site helpful in providing information that you may need to manage the situation and the consequences of the injury. Our experienced California Workers Compensation disability attorneys are ready to serve you, should you find that legal assistance is needed relative to your Workmans Comp claim.

We recommend that you bookmark this site. As Workers Compensation attorneys should, we work to reflect the latest work related accident and work injury information. We also maintain links to California and Federal official sites for Workers Compensation injuries such as industrial injury, construction accident and occupational injury resulting in back injury, back strain, carpal tunnel syndrome, back sprain, head injury, neck injury, continuous trauma and / or repetitive stress injury. These may all be covered by Disability Laws and are considered in determining disability and medical benefits.

We have developed the following as general information that may help in better understanding Workers Compensation laws and the benefits to which you may be entitled.

Generally speaking, Workers Compensation is a state-regulated insurance program that pays medical bills and may replace lost wages for California employees who are injured and / or disabled at work or who have work-related injuries, diseases or illnesses.

Workers Compensation will pay for the medical treatment of an injury or illness if:

- the injury occurred at work or the disease or illness is job-related; and
- the workers employer has Workers Compensation insurance, which usually is required.
California Workers Compensation insurance will also replace some of the workers lost wages if:

- the injury or illness caused the worker to lose some or all income for more than three days.

Ask a California Workers Compensation attorney about the specifics of your California Workmans Compensation case. California also has state disability benefits to which you may be entitled. These too are handled by disability insurance contributed to by your employer.

An injured California worker is usually entitled to all reasonable medical care expenses that result from a work-related injury. Covered medical care by California Workers Compensation insurance claims generally include: medical, surgical and hospital services, dental services, crutches, hearing aids, chiropractic treatment, physical therapy, nursing care, and prescribed medications. Covered expenses typically continue as long as treatment is reasonable and necessary to treat the injury. Be sure to check with your attorney to determine if your employer has the right to choose his or her own medical provider for your care. Workers Compensation injury claims and Workers Compensation injury benefits are provided for in federal law as well as California injury law and California workers comp laws.

Workmans Compensation claims may cover a variety of injuries ranging from temporary to a permanent and total or partial disability.

You may be entitled to payment for a partial impairment. Partial impairment is known as a partial incapacity that prevents an employee from competing in the work place as before. Medical evidence will determine the extent of your temporary as well as permanent disability. The value of your claim depends, in large part, on the extent of a permanent disability. Your Picozzi, Nielsen, & Lloyd' disability attorney will be able to answer the hard injury settlement questions for you, and counsel you on:

- stipulation and award;
- compromise and release;
- the difference between temporary disability, permanent disability, partial permanent disability, and 100% disability.
- vocational rehabilitation (voc rehab)

You should also be aware that if you were dependent on your spouse for economic support, you may be entitled to death benefits from California Workmens Compensation. Death benefits may be available for the employee’s children if they were economically dependent on your spouse at the time of death. The amount awarded will depend on your particular case.

California Workers Compensation laws can be very complex and confusing. Disability benefits, medical benefits, injury settlement and death benefits are determined by many different laws, both federal and specific to California. Understanding the system and the Workers Compensation Appeals Process will help to calm your fears and approach the medical and legal process more confidently.
