Workers' Compensation is a benefit guaranteed by the California Constitution to those people injured at work or as the result of their work. In it's most basic form it provides medical care, lost wages and a permanent disability benefit. It is a no fault system. Filing a claim and taking care of your injury does not mean you are "suing" your employer.
The insurance company or employer is supposed to voluntarily provide workers' compensation benefits fairly and promptly. However, the system relies upon a complex procedure that can lead to significant delays and outright denial of benefits. Too often, getting necessary medical treatment and a fair resolution to an injury is a fight, to get anything approved. The insurance company has lawyers; you should, too.
