What Benefits Am I Entitled to as an Injured Worker in California?

Injured employees need to be protected against the impacts of on-the-job injuries. In the state of California, the type of compensation you receive will depend on factors including:

  • Temporary Disability
  • Permanent Disability

Temporary Disability

Temporary disability benefits are the most common type of workers’ compensation that injured employees receive. These benefits are divided into two separate categories:

  1. Temporary Total Disability (TTD) – covers the period of time needed to heal from an injury.
  2. Temporary Partial Disability (TPD) – indicates that an employee can continue to perform limited work despite their injury.

When you work during your recovery but not to the full extent that you worked before your injury, your eligibility for either TTD or TPD will be based on work restrictions provided by your doctor.

Permanent Disability

A permanent disability prevents an individual from earning income and joining the workforce. To be eligible for permanent disability benefits, you must be determined 100% disabled. The seriousness of the injury will ultimately determine the amount of settlement you receive. The extent of your injuries, whether you can return to work, and how you incurred your injuries are additional factors that can potentially influence the final settlement of your case.

Dedicated to Helping You Get Your Life Back on Track

The workers’ compensation system in California is designed to provide benefits to those who are injured while working. These benefits can pay for medical care and provide you with income while you are unable to work. There are a variety of injuries that can qualify you for these benefits, ranging from traumatic accidents on the job to injuries that have built up over time (such as carpal tunnel syndrome).

To obtain benefits, you must navigate a complicated web of rules and regulations. Involving a workers' compensation lawyer in Los Angeles in this process as soon as possible can help you avoid issues—including having your claim denied—that may occur if you attempt the complex process on your own.

At Hinden & Breslavsky, our Los Angeles workers’ compensation lawyers can guide you through each stage of the California workers’ compensation system. If needed, we can also help you obtain additional compensation through personal injury actions.

Our team of attorneys, hearing representatives, and support staff is dedicated to helping clients get their lives back on track. Contact us as soon as possible for help with your case.
