Construction accident injuries can be overwhelming, but workers' compensation is here to help

If you've been injured in a construction accident in California, here's what you need to know about your rights under California law.

Report the accident

Report your injury to your employer as soon as possible. You have 30 days to report, but it's best to do so immediately.

Seek medical treatment

Your employer's workers' compensation insurance should cover the cost of necessary medical treatment for your injury. You can choose your doctor from a list provided by the insurance company.

Temporary disability benefits

If your injury prevents you from working for more than three days, you may be entitled to temporary disability benefits. These payments are usually about two-thirds of your average weekly wage.

Permanent disability benefits

If your injury results in permanent disability, you may receive additional compensation to help with your long-term needs.

Vocational rehabilitation

If you can't return to your construction job, you may be able to get help finding alternative employment through vocational rehabilitation services.

Death benefits

If a construction accident results in the death of a worker, his or her dependents may be eligible for death benefits to help with financial support and funeral expenses.
