Benefits Under Workers' Compensation

Injuries on the job may range from one-time accidents to stress-related injury to illness that results from exposure to hazardous substances over an extended period. If you have experienced illness or injury, it is important to notify your employer and begin the process of applying for worker's compensation right away. Our Palm Springs workers' compensation lawyers at Gilbert & Bourke have an in-depth understanding of California worker's compensation law, and can help guide you through each step.

Some of the benefits that you may be eligible to receive under worker's compensation are:

  • Medical expenses paid in full by your employer's insurance company
  • Temporary disability benefits that are paid at a rate of two-thirds of your average weekly wage (up to a statutory maximum) until you can return to your job or have reached maximum medical improvement
  • Permanent disability benefits after you have reached maximum medical improvement
  • Reimbursement for reasonable and necessary out-of-pocket expenses and mileage for travel to medical providers
  • An educational training voucher for retraining at an approved school if you do not return to work within certain time limits
  • Dependent death benefits to family members in case the injured or ill worker dies
