Workers' Compensation Benefits Available to Stockton Employees

Trusted Advocates With More Than a Decade of Experience

After a work-related injury, the process for securing benefits is complex and requires the worker to closely follow the rules and regulations of California workers' compensation law. You need to understand and follow these rules in order to obtain compensation for medical care and loss of wages. The Stockton workers' compensation lawyers at the Law Offices of Bo Katzakian aggressively defend the rights of injured workers in Northern California.

Benefits for Injured Workers

There are several types of benefits which injured employees may be entitled to utilize, including:

  • Medical Treatment: Your medical treatment for a work-related injury will be automatically covered unless the claim is denied outright.
  • Rehabilitation: A permanently disabled worker is provided with a voucher, depending on the level of disability, to enter a retraining program.
  • Temporary Disability Benefits: An injured worker may be entitled to compensation at two-thirds of their gross pay until the worker can return to work, for up to two years.
  • Permanent Disability Benefits: When a doctor’s analysis reveals that work potential is permanently lost, you are entitled to permanent disability benefits. The percentage of the disability determined by the doctor affects the benefit level.

Requirements for Benefit Eligibility

For an injured worker to qualify for workers' compensation benefits, the injury must happen at work when the employee was acting within the scope of employment. Unfortunately, insurance companies frequently insist that injuries do not meet this standard and use this to deny the claims of injured workers.

There are a few things you can do to maximize your benefits. These include reporting your injury immediately, obtaining an accurate diagnosis, keeping detailed records of medical treatments, and consulting with a qualified Stockton workers’ compensation attorney. Our law firm has the experience needed to negotiate workers' compensation cases and help you obtain the maximum compensation for your work injury.
