Am I entitled to workers' compensation?
One of the first questions people ask after getting injured on the job
is – how does workers' compensation affect me? California employers
are required to carry workers' compensation and this can work in your
favor. It is, however, a complex process that may take months to resolve.

it is time to file your claim. If your employer approves your claim, workers'

is not covered by workers' compensation may result in the denial of
a claim, but you can challenge the decision.
