In California, workers’ compensation covers all of your authorized injury-related expenses, including (but not limited to) medical costs, rehabilitation costs, therapy, and any job-related retraining you may need to get back to work. You may also be eligible for temporary total or temporary partial disability benefits if your injury has put you out of commission for a time. Should your injury pose permanent limitations on your ability to do your job or eliminate your ability to work at all, you may be able to receive permanent disability benefits.
