Do I Qualify for Workers' Compensation?

Eligibility for Workers' Compensation

If you have been injured at work or became ill during the course of your job, an attorney at The Law Offices of Gary Rodich can discuss whether you qualify for Workers' Compensation benefits. There are strict rules that are used to determine one's eligibility and steps you must take to ensure that your application is approved. We can guide you through the process and fight for the benefits you need every step of the way.

Basic eligibility requirements for Workers' Compensation:

  • You must be an employee (temporary, full-time or part-time)
  • You must have been injured in a work-related accident or became ill
  • Your injury could have occured on a specific date and time or over a continuous period of time

Almost any type of injury is covered by Workers' Compensation, including back injuries, neck injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, inhalation cases, catastrophic cases, burn cases, psychiatric and stress claims, death claims, and other types of orthopedic injuries. Workers' Compensation is provided regardless of fault. All employees are covered under California's Workers' Compensation laws, whether you are working full-time, part-time, or on a temporary basis.

Workers' Compensation & Off-Site Work Injuries

For many workers, the nature of the job may require commuting off-site. In such cases, injuries that occurred while attending a work event or performing a work-related duty may be covered.

Examples of work-related injuries that may have happened off-site:

  • You are injured in a car accident while driving to run errands for work
  • You are attending a company event and become injured
  • You are at a company party and become injured
