Best Answer

In California and other states, a portion of worker's comp premiums paid by employers go into the Uninsured Employer's Fund. This fund pays for treatment and compensation of injury victims when the employer is illegally uninsured. Check with your state's labor department or worker's comp board to see if such a fund exists in your state.
