Filing a workers’ compensation claim can be difficult, which is why the Law Offices of Delitala is here to help.

What Is Workers’ Comp?
An individual on the payroll of an employer is known as a worker. The benefits that said worker is entitled to for his or her liabilities is known as workers’ compensation. Liabilities include monetary losses and health problems that are the result of injuries sustained on the job—such as days of work they missed out on while recovering from their injury or bills incurred in the hospital.
California’s Workers’ Compensation Act was designed to ensure that California employees who sustain injuries on the job receive the compensation and medical treatment they deserve. Compensation can be rewarded to employees even in cases where the employer is non-negligent.
Below are the types of benefits injured workers are entitled to receive:
- Medical treatment: This includes hospital, dental, chiropractic, medical, surgical, and acupuncture treatments.
- Temporary disability: This is granted when you are unable to work temporarily due to the injuries you incurred. The specifics of your case will determine the rate and total amount of coverage you receive.
- Permanent disability: If the injury you incurred while working has resulted in a permanent change in your medical condition, you are entitled to permanent disability to compensate you for your loss.
- Death: Benefits are provided to the families of workers that received injuries on the job that resulted in their death. These benefits are provided to take care of the worker’s family and cover their burial expenses.
- Supplemental job displacement: If your injury has hindered your ability to do your job, forcing you to modify your procedures or even switch job positions, you are entitled to supplemental job displacement benefits.
