Q: What benefits am I entitled to receive under Workers' Compensation?
A: Workers' Compensation benefits in California may include medical treatment, temporary disability benefits, permanent disability benefits, vocational rehabilitation, and death benefits for dependents in fatal work accidents.

A: In most cases, Workers' Compensation is a no-fault system, which means you cannot sue your employer for a work-related injury. However, there may be exceptions if your injury resulted from intentional harm or gross negligence.
