Overview of your workers’ compensation rights
Workers’ compensation is a mandatory insurance program for virtually all businesses in California. When employers pay into the system, they receive protection from injury lawsuits while workers’ get no-fault insurance that pays a variety of benefits, including:
- Medical bills
- A percentage of lost wages
- Permanent disability
- Death benefits for fatal work-related accidents
Here are a few basic facts about your workers’ compensation rights:
- You are covered from day one of work.
- Workers’ comp is no-fault insurance, so you’re covered even if you hurt yourself carelessly.
- If you don’t agree with the doctor’s plan of care, you have a right to a second opinion.
- You have the right to appeal a denial of benefits.
- You have the right to appeal a disability rating.
Of course, you also have responsibilities. You must report your injury as soon as possible to your employer. If you fail to report the injury within 30 days of missing work, you could lose your eligibility for benefits.
If you are denied benefits, the deadline to file an appeal comes very fast. That’s when you really need the assistance of an experienced workers’ comp attorney who knows how to fight for your rights.
