Medical Care Booklet and Factsheet for Injured Workers


LOHP’s booklet, Getting Appropriate Medical Care for Your Injury, discusses injured workers’ rights, steps to take, and where to go for help. It describes California workers’ compensation rules and procedures as of October 2006. An introductory factsheet, The Basics About Medical Care for Injured Workers, answers basic questions about workers’ compensation medical care and resources for injured workers.

The booklet and factsheet were prepared by UC Berkeley’s Institute of Industrial Relations (IIR) and LOHP in collaboration with the California Department of Industrial Relations, the Commission on Health and Safety and Workers’ Compensation, and the Division of Workers’ Compensation. Only online versions are available at this time.
