Workers' Compensation for California Amazon Workers

Hollister workers' comp lawyers for injured Amazon workers

Understanding Workers' Compensation Benefits for Amazon Employees

Amazon is one of the largest employers in California, and its workers play crucial roles in fulfilling customer orders and maintaining smooth operations. However, these employees are not immune to workplace accidents or injuries that may occur while performing their duties. When such incidents happen, workers' compensation can provide financial support for medical treatment and wage replacement during recovery.

Trusted Amazon Workers' Compensation Attorneys

At Cramer + Martinez, we work with Amazon employees to help them understand the types of workers' compensation benefits that may be available after suffering work-related injuries. Workers' comp benefits may include:

  • Medical treatment: An employee injured on the job while working for Amazon may be entitled to receive medical treatment coverage through their employer's workers' compensation insurance carrier or self-insurance program. The coverage includes payment for reasonable and necessary medical expenses related to an injury or illness.
  • Temporary disability benefits: If a person's ability to work is affected by a work-related injury or illness, temporary disability benefits will compensate them by providing two-thirds (66.6%) of their average weekly earnings at the time of the injury while they are recovering under an authorized treating physician's care. These benefits generally continue until a person reaches maximum medical improvement (MMI), returns to work, or has been paid a maximum of 104 weeks of benefits within 5 years of the date of injury.
  • Permanent disability benefits: If an injury results in permanent limitations that prevent a person from returning to full function after reaching MMI, permanent disability benefits might apply depending on various factors like impairment rating and diminished future earning capacity assessments.
  • Death benefits: In situations where tragedy strikes, resulting in a fatality due to a work-related incident at Amazon, eligible immediate family members could be entitled to death benefits.
  • Vocational rehabilitation services: If an injury prevents an employee from returning to their previous role, but they are capable of working elsewhere with modifications or retraining, supplemental job displacement benefits may help them find suitable employment opportunities within their abilities.
