Castillo & Associates attorneys

Castillo & Associates are highly experienced workers’ compensation lawyers serving Temecula, CA. Todos hablamos Español.

When a worker is injured while on the job, California law requires that employers must provide certain forms of workers’ compensation benefits. Additionally, employers will need to have both insurance coverage and policies set in place to cover workers in the event that they suffer an injury or develop an illness. In the state, benefits provided from workers’ compensation insurance coverage can come in different forms, including medical treatment benefits, loss of wages and temporary disability, permanent disability, as well as death benefits. 

After a workplace injury, you will need to obtain the support of a workers’ compensation attorney who will ensure you obtain the benefits you deserve. Unfortunately, many injured workers are often left with mounting medical expenses after a workplace accident. While employers have an obligation to obtain workers’ compensation insurance, employers and their insurance carriers often dispute the claim and find any excuse to lessen the amount of benefits awarded. With the support of a dedicated attorney on your side, you will be able to obtain the amount of benefits you truly deserve.

The Different Types of Workers’ Compensation Benefits Available

Injured workers become eligible for workers’ compensation coverage when they file a claim for their work-related injury. Before their benefits can be paid, however, their employer’s insurance carrier will decide whether the injury can be covered. Depending on the specifics of each case, the following types of benefits can be awarded:

1. Medical and Hospital Benefits

In accordance with the state’s Labor Code §4600, employers must finance medical treatment for their employees who have been injured while completing a job-related task. Coverage, however, is limited by duration and the amount of care that should be covered. For the most part, if the treatment is reasonably related to the employee’s injury and is scientifically proven to treat that type of injury, the treatment will be covered by workers’ compensation insurance. Employers will need to provide coverage even if the worker does not take time off of work as a result of the incident. 

2. Temporary Disability Benefits and the Loss of Wages

In the event that the injury results in a temporary disability, the state’s workers’ compensation laws provide that workers are eligible for two forms of disability benefits: Temporary Total Disability and Temporary Partial Disability benefits. 

3. Permanent Disability Benefits 

When an injured worker is not able to make a complete recovery after the accident or the injury has resulted in a permanent loss of his or her physical or mental faculties, the worker may qualify for permanent disability benefits. Compensation provided for a permanent disability will depend on several factors, including:

    • The worker’s age,
    • The worker’s income prior to the injury, 
    • The type of the worker’s medical condition, 
    • The extent of the worker’s disability or impairment,
    • The nature of the injury and the circumstances that led to the injury, and
    • The apportionment of fault caused by the job, instead of other potentially liable factors

4. Supplemental Job Displacement Benefits

When a person has been injured while at work, he or she may be eligible to receive supplemental benefits that could help enhance his or her skills. These benefits can be made available if the worker has been identified as having a permanent disability, is unable to return to work as a result of the injury or is unable to be accommodated for an alternative position. 

5. Death Benefits

According to California law, when a worker dies as a result of a job-related illness or injury, the worker’s survivors can collect death benefits. The benefits available will depend on the number of eligible dependents.
