Workers’ Compensation Generally

Workers’ Compensation is a complex area of the law where recent legislation has made it more difficult for injured workers to obtain their full benefits and medical treatment without the assistance of an attorney.  The benefits that injured workers are entitled to in California can generally be categorized into four groups, Temporary Disability, Permanent Disability, Medical Treatment and a Supplemental Job Displacement Voucher. In addition, if you have a prior injury or disability you may be entitled to a claim with the Subsequent Injury Benefit Trust Fund.
