Injured workers face high costs and low benefits

The difficulties faced by injured workers in California and throughout the country are highlighted in a new report from the Department of Labor. The report calls the workers' compensation system inadequate and estimates that only 21 percent of medical costs and lost wages are paid by workers' compensation. Workers are left trying to pay for the rest while making ends meet.

The 5 most common workplace injuries

California workers should know that career-ending injuries may happen in nearly any line of work. Accidents in the workplace may occur at even the most safety-conscious businesses, authorities say. The most common workplace accidents can cause back injuries, spine damage and debilitating pain in the joints. Although many on-the-job injuries are minor, some workers become financially crippled by their work-related injuries, suffering lost wages, costly hospital bills and the cost of rehabilitation and recovery.
