Suffering a serious workplace injury can be frightening and often overwhelming. In many cases, you will have countless questions running through your head. What am I going to do without a paycheck? How will I cover my expenses? Is there any way I will get paid while I’m disabled?

Depending on your circumstances, you may be eligible for one, or all, of the disability payments listed above ― in addition to other workers comp benefits. However, navigating California’s complex workers’ compensation system can be difficult, especially without experienced legal guidance by your side.
