State Workers' Comp Claims
Workers' Compensation Claims for Government Employees
If you work for the state of California and were injured on the job, you have the right to file a workers' compensation claim in order to seek the benefits you deserve as an injured worker. Under California law, you may be entitled to receive money for medical care as well as permanent or temporary disability. You may be entitled to job displacement or vocational rehabilitation benefits as well. These benefits may make all the difference in your ability to pay living expenses and medical bills while you are injured - or to assist you in rebuilding your life after suffering a debilitating injury.
