Workers Compensation Benefits

Workers compensation benefits are calculated based on a number of different factors associated with your claim. Because the system is highly regulated and often complex, it is important to act quickly and speak to an attorney who has the experience you need to obtain the benefits you deserve.

In fact, even if your situation seems straightforward and it appears your company is willing to help, the only way to ensure you are being fully compensated is to work with an experienced workers compensation lawyer. Hiring an attorney before a problem arises will make the process much easier than trying to fix unexpected issues later on in the process.

At the Law Offices of Kropach & Kropach, our lead counsel has over 40 years of proven courtroom experience and is a Workers Compensation Certified Specialist — a distinction, not all lawyers possess. We have spent decades helping injured workers just like you, so contact us today and let us help you protect your job and your future.

Understanding The Different Types Of Compensation

Depending on your work-related injury, there are several different types of workers comp benefits to which you may be entitled under California law. For instance, your compensation may cover:

  • Medical costs and expenses associated with your on-the-job injury
  • Temporary disability benefits or wage loss benefits
  • Permanent disability benefits and loss of future earning capacity
  • Future medical needs
  • Supplemental Job Displacement Voucher and Return to Work Fund
  • Death and dependency benefits
  • Subsequent Injuries Benefits Trust Fund (SIBTF) benefits

It is also important to remember that just because you are labeled an independent contractor does not mean that you cannot recover workers compensation benefits from your employer if you suffer a work-related injury. In addition, if your employer does not maintain workers compensation insurance, we can help you seek justice using proceedings against the Uninsured Employers Benefits Trust Fund (UEBTF).

Simply put, if you are injured at work, we will exhaust every legal remedy available to get you the benefits you need. After all, insurance companies have claims adjusters and lawyers whose sole aim is to minimize costs, and they will try to find opportunities to deny you benefits whenever possible.
