Questions and answers about workers' compensation and injuries on the job

In every field or profession, there is a chance that you can be injured on the job. Sometimes these injuries are basic and easily treated while others can put you in the hospital and completely change the course of your life. Most companies use workers' compensation insurance to help cover the financial costs when an employee is injured on the job, but it's important that the employee understands the basics of how the process works.

Can your workers' comp claim hurt you? Not in California

Even if you've been injured on the job, you might hesitate to file for workers' compensation. You might worry about how filing for workers' comp could affect your job. Will your employer be upset and take it out on you? Could your employer decide to fire you if you make a claim?

Five myths about workers' compensation

Maybe you were injured in a workplace accident. Maybe you were exposed to toxic chemicals on the job. Maybe your condition is a result of repetitive stress. In any of these situations, you may qualify for workers' compensation benefits. However, the first step to getting the help you need is understanding how the system works - and how it doesn't.
