Workers' Compensation Benefits

Suffering an injury or illness on the job may very well come about at an unexpected time. When this happens, you could be wondering what next steps to take, as well as what benefits you may be entitled to receive while you work towards recovery and returning to work.

Our Sacramento workers' compensation attorneys at Smolich & Smolich have an in-depth knowledge of every type of benefit that you may be able to obtain. When you choose us to represent you, we will do everything in our power to get you approved for the maximum amount of compensation possible for your specific situation.

What Benefits Are Available to Me?

The forms of worker's compensation benefits that are available in California include:

  • Temporary disability, which are paid when an individual is unable to work their job as a result of the injury or illness, available until they are released to return to work, found to have a permanent disability, or have reached maximum medical improvement, and paid at a rate of two-thirds their weekly wage (up to a maximum amount)
  • Permanent partial disability, which is available if your injury is determined to be permanent, calculated based on a 0-100% disability scale, and may be received through weekly payments or a lump-sum
  • Medical treatment, which covers all necessary and reasonable medical care in order to cure the injury or illness, and may need to be sought through your employer's medical provider network
  • Supplemental job displacement, which is available for workers who are unable to return to the same job or line of work and is paid in the form of a voucher to a state-accredited school
  • Death benefits, which are paid to the dependent spouse and minor children, if the worker dies from his or her injury or illness

  • Without Smolich & Smolich taking my case I would have never gotten my benefits!!!

    “Without Smolich & Smolich taking my case I would have never gotten my benefits!!! Rob Smolich took my case himself and was so helpful in every step of the way. I cant say anything negative about Smolich & Smolich. I had a lawyer before him and he was way more personable. His office took all the stress off my back and made me feel at ease during the time period of waiting. Have nothing but good things to say about this company. They are completely professional!!!!”

  • They know what it takes to win. Thank you all so much!

    “Thank you so much for your help. I was denied twice by social security disability. They are the most diligent and wonderfully. Yes it takes a while to get a hearing. If it wasn't for the great staff and attorneys here, I would have never been approved for disability. It was the best Christmas gift i received. They know what it takes to win. Thank you all so much!”

  • You were so proactive and informative, you really did take away so much of my stress during the whole process.

    “I sincerely apologize for the delay! I truly thought I had already sent this off to almost 3 months ago! Thank goodness I had someone helping me clean and organize the apartment last week. She found your letter behind my bookcase. I would like to take this opportunity to once again thank you for your support and dedication throughout my case. You were a true blessing to me. You were so proactive and informative, you really did take away so much of my stress during the whole process. Just the fact that you returned a call so promptly was a very big deal to me. It let me know that I mattered to you, Sarah, and the firm. Thanks to the two of you I am finally settled in my own apartment and my mom was able to finally retire. So again, thank you from the depths of my heart for everything that you personally and your firm have done for me. You were true angels in my tie of need.”
