Does California require Employers to carry Workers' Compensation Insurance?

Yes. California employers are required by law (California Labor Code Section 3700) to have workers' compensation insurance for their employees, regardless of how many employees they have.

How do I know if I am eligible for Workers’ Compensation?

Determining and proving an individual’s eligibility for workers’ compensation is one of the main goals of that individual’s legal team. Though the details can be quite complicated, the primary factors used are whether you are an employee, and whether the injury or illness occurred because of your employment. From there, other mitigating factors may come into play.

How long will it take to settle my case?

Unfortunately, there is no simple answer to this question. The complexity of the situation and severity of your injuries can have a significant impact on how long it takes to resolve your case. However, we have found that cases are rarely closed in under a year.

Does Workers’ Compensation cover illnesses and long-term disabilities or injuries?

You do not need to experience a singular accident that results in an acute injury in order to be eligible for workers’ compensation. Benefits may be available to those suffering from illnesses or diseases resulting from work conditions, such as heart or lung diseases or issues caused by chronic stress. Additionally, many employees are able to secure compensation for problems like repetitive stress injuries, which are chronic in nature and were not caused by one discrete incident.
