The state of California requires all employers with at least one employee to carry worker’s compensation insurance. Workers’ compensation or “workers’ comp” as it is often called, is an insurance program that provides injured employees with the financial compensation they need. This is a no-fault system which means that an injured worker is not required to prove his or her injury was the fault of someone else in order to receive compensation for their injury.
If you have sustained a workplace injury, you are entitled to compensation for your medical expenses and lost wages under workers’ compensation law. You are not however, entitled to non-economic damages such as pain & suffering.
The workers compensation attorneys at Hogan Injury understand that injuries sustained at the workplace can be very stressful.

In today’s economy, it is common to be fearful of losing your job if you’ve been injured and cannot perform your job duties as you normally would. During these trying times, it’s important that you know that you do have rights under federal and state workers’ compensation laws.
