California State workers' compensation refers to insurance benefits provided by employers for any employee that suffers from an occupational injury or illness. The law requires employers to adequately compensate an injured or ill employee for their lost wages and medical expenses, if the injury or illness occurs while on the job. This may include illness due to chemical exposure, a trip or fall accident on the job site, a car accident while making work deliveries, chemical burns or injuries from malfunctioning machinery, etc.

California State workers' compensation benefits typically include:

  • Disability benefits if disabled permanently or temporarily due to work
  • Medical care and medical expenses for a work-related injury or illness
  • Job displacement benefits
  • Vocational rehabilitation, retraining or counseling, if needed
  • Wage reimbursement for all lost wages while unable to work
  • Benefits for an employee's dependents if he or she should suffer a job-related fatality
