Many people do not know that workers' compensation benefits are mandated by the California Constitution. This tells us that the framers of this Constitution took the rights of injured workers very seriously and were committed to protecting them. However, the implementation of an actual system of benefits was left to the California Legislature.  Recent Legislative changes have clearly demonstrated that, for whatever reason, many of our State lawmakers do not truly share this commitment to protecting the rights of injured workers.
 
Injured workers throughout the State of California have had their benefits drastically reduced by the Legislature. In particular, permanent disability benefits and the right to medical treatment have been seriously affected. We consider this to be of grave concern, since the workers' compensation system is the "exclusive remedy" when one sustains an injury on the job. An injured worker cannot "opt out" of the system and proceed through civil litigation as an alternative. Since workers' compensation is "all there is", we hope that future Legislative changes will reflect a greater sensitivity to the very real needs of injured workers and their families.
 
Nobody ever plans on getting hurt at work, but on-the-job injuries are much more prevalent and much more devastating than most people realize. In spite of the fact that many important legal benefits have now been reduced, and some have even been eliminated, it is still essential for any California worker who sustains a serious job injury to obtain the assistance of competent legal counsel, and to do so before it is too late for a lawyer to provide any meaningful help. Here at the Frost Law Office, we remain committed to protecting the rights of all injured workers, and we will continue to do everything in our power, as attorneys, to obtain for our clients all the workers compensation benefits to which they are legally entitled.
