Qualifying for Workers' Comp Benefits

Your injury or illness must have occurred while you were performing job-related duties to qualify for workers comp. This means that the injury must have taken place during working hours or while you were carrying out job responsibilities. 

You must be classified as an employee, not an independent contractor or volunteer. 

Failure to report an injury within a certain timeframe can result in the denial of the claim. It is important to provide precise details about the incident, including the date, time, location, and circumstances surrounding the injury.

California law requires that employers, including those in the construction industry, carry workers’ compensation insurance, even if they have only one employee. Insurance exists for employees who get hurt or sick because of work. [1]
