Understanding Workers’ Compensation

Workers' compensation is a form of insurance that provides wage replacement and medical benefits to employees injured during employment, in exchange for relinquishing the right to sue an employer for negligence. This system is designed to facilitate the process for workers to receive fair compensation without the need for litigation, allowing them to focus on their recovery and quickly obtain the benefits they need.

Whether you’re entitled to workers’ compensation depends on several factors, including:

  • Your employment. Only covered workers in California are eligible for workers’ compensation. This includes most workers employed part-time, full-time, or seasonally by employers with one or more employees. However, there are exceptions. Independent contractors, unpaid volunteers, certain agricultural workers, and other types of workers are excluded from workers’ compensation. An attorney can help evaluate your employment and how it impacts your eligibility.
  • Your injuries. Only injuries and illnesses that occurred in the course of employment are covered by workers’ compensation. This means you must have suffered harm in the workplace or as the result of performing work-related duties. It’s not always clear when or how an injury or illness arose, and insurers may argue that injuries are not work-related. Having a legal advocate can help you address these types of challenges.
  • Other factors. Other factors can impact your ability to obtain benefits. Some of these include your employment status at the time of your injury, whether the injury resulted from misconduct, whether your injury was in fact a pre-existing condition, and many more. An experienced attorney may be able to help you overcome some of these issues and handle any disputes raised by insurers who are looking to underpay or deny your claim.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do I Need a Lawyer to File a Workers’ Compensation Claim in Tustin, CA?

    While it is not mandatory to have legal representation when filing a workers' compensation claim in Tustin, working with a lawyer can be invaluable.

    A lawyer will understand the intricacies of California workers' compensation law and can help in all facets of your claim, from initial evaluations to evidence gathering, claim construction, paperwork filing, negotiations, dispute resolution, and, when necessary, litigation. When you’re up against an insurance company that cares more about profits than people, having an advocate on your side can make all the difference.

  • How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer in Tustin?
    Workers’ compensation lawyers typically work on a contingency fee basis, which means they receive a percentage of the benefits you are awarded. In California, this fee is generally between 10% to 15%, subject to approval by the Workers' Compensation Appeals Board. We can discuss fees and how we work to control costs for our clients during a consultation.
  • If I Am Injured at Work, Can I Choose My Own Doctor For Workers’ Compensation Treatment?

    Initially, you may be required to see a doctor in your employer's medical provider network. After 30 days from the date of the injury, you may have the option to choose your own doctor or change doctors within the network. However, because workers’ compensation insurers may refuse to cover treatment provided by unauthorized providers, you’ll want to be certain that any provider or specialist you work with will be covered.

    If you’re working with a lawyer, they can help address matters involving your medical care, and may even help you obtain independent medical evaluations and treatment from providers within their own network of connections.

  • How Long Do I Have to Seek Medical Attention For a Work Injury in Tustin to Be Eligible for Workers’ Compensation Benefits?
    For eligibility (and health) purposes, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible after sustaining the injury. Delaying medical care can complicate the claims process and potentially affect your eligibility for benefits, as it gives insurers an opening to argue that your injuries were not sustained at work.
  • What Happens if My Employer Refuses to Authorize Necessary Medical Treatment for My Work Injury?

    If your employer or their workers’ compensation insurance company refuses to authorize essential medical treatment, California law allows you to appeal to the California Department of Industrial Relations Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC). A qualified lawyer can help you evaluate options for negotiating with the insurer or pursuing an appeal hearing with the DWC.

  • What Is the Deadline for Reporting a Workplace Injury in Tustin, CA?
    You must report the workplace injury to your employer within 30 days of the injury occurring. Failing to do so may disqualify you from receiving workers' compensation benefits.
  • What Is the Closest Workers’ Compensation Office to Tustin?
    The closest Division of Workers' Compensation (DWC) office is in Santa Ana. This office services the Orange County area and should be used for any in-person proceedings or to file paperwork.
  • Am I Eligible for Workers’ Compensation as a Temporary Worker at a Construction Site in Tustin?

    Yes, temporary workers are typically covered under their employer's workers' compensation insurance in California. If injured on the job, you are likely entitled to benefits.

  • Can I File a Workers’ Compensation Claim in California If I Work From Home for a Company Based in Another State?

    If you're legally working in California for a company based in another state and sustain a work-related injury, you can file a workers' compensation claim in California. Our attorneys can further discuss this type of employment relationship and the facts of your case during a consultation.

  • Are There Any Special Workers’ Compensation Rules For Office Workers in Tustin, CA?

    Workers' compensation rules generally apply across all industries in the same way. However, the nature of office work can lead to specific types of injuries, like repetitive motion injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome, which are certainly covered under workers' compensation.

  • If I Get Into an Accident While Making a Delivery in My Own Car, Am I Covered by Workers’ Compensation?

    If the accident occurs during your work duties, such as making a delivery for your employer, you should be covered by workers’ compensation, even if you're using your personal vehicle.

  • Can I File a Workers’ Compensation Claim If I'm a Personal Trainer Injured While Helping a Client?

    Yes, personal trainers are covered under workers' compensation if they are employees of a company. Independent contractors may need to carry their own insurance but could be eligible under certain conditions.

    Depending on the circumstances surrounding your accident, you may have grounds to pursue a civil personal injury claim against a gym or homeowner if their negligence in maintaining their property caused your injury. Our firm has a thriving personal injury practice and can help you evaluate options for pursuing a third-party claim.
  • What Is the Average Wait Time to Receive Benefits After Filing a Workers’ Compensation Claim in Tustin?

    After filing a workers’ compensation claim in Tustin, it typically takes about 14 days for the insurance company to accept or deny your claim. If accepted, temporary disability payments usually start within 14 days after your last day of work.


We'll make sure your claim is filed quickly and accurately.
