Who Can File a Workers’ Comp Claim in California?
Any worker who is injured on the job can file a workers’ compensation claim. All employers in California are required to have workers’ compensation insurance, which makes all employees eligible. Whether you were injured due to your employer’s negligence or any other event at work, you may be entitled to compensation and medical coverage.
What Are Work-Related Injuries?
The California Workers’ Compensation Act provides compensation to workers who have sustained work-related injuries or illnesses. Essentially, any injury is considered work-related as long as the event at hand either caused the condition or aggravated a pre-existing condition. To file a claim, you will need to determine your level of impairment, which is the percentage of the loss of function. This can be done using the American Medical Association Guides to the Evaluation of Impairment.
The most common work-related injuries include:
- Back injuries
- Shoulder injuries
- Knee injuries
- Hand/wrist injuries
- Elbow injuries
- Heart injuries
- Gastro-intestinal injuries
- Psychiatric injuries
- Hernia injuries
If you sustained an injury on the job, you may be entitled to compensation. Call our Fallbrook workers’ compensation attorney to learn more.

- Permanent disability: If your injury permanently alters your medical condition, you are eligible for permanent disability benefits.
- Supplemental job displacement: You may be eligible for supplemental job displacement benefits if your injury has hindered your ability to follow your previous job procedures or has forced you to work in another position.
