Maximize the medical care and benefits you're entitled to!
From industrial injuries to carpal tunnel syndrome, more than a million Californians a year suffer job-related injuries or illness. For many, receiving compensation can be a nightmare.
California Workers' Comp shows you how to handle a California workers' compensation claim from start to finish. Find out how to:

• file a claim
• protect your legal rights
• receive the medical care you need
• get the benefits you're entitled to
• deal with uncooperative employers, doctors and insurance agencies
• negotiate a settlement
• present your case before a judge
The 7th edition is completely updated with the latest regulations and labor codes, and explains how the new AMA Guides affect your permanent-disability award.

Recent laws give employers and insurance companies far greater rights and employees fewer medical benefits. Learn to work with your insurance company to receive the medical treatment and benefits you deserve.
