The Process of Filing a Workers’ Compensation Claim

After being injured on the job and receiving medical care, you must report your injuries to your employer as soon as possible. Upon reporting your injury, your employer should provide you with claims forms to complete. You will need to provide information about yourself and your injuries and return the form to your employer. The company you work for most likely has its own policies concerning the workers’ compensation filing process, which should be expressed to you when you report your injuries.

Potential Obstacles When Filling

The process of resolving a workers’ compensation case unfortunately may not be as simple as filing your claim and collecting your benefits. You may face obstacles while filing your claim, and it is possible that your claim could eventually be denied. With our attorneys on your side, you can face any hurdles that are presented to you during the workers’ compensation claim process.

Your employer should provide you with guidance during the filing process, along with the forms you need. Sometimes, employers do not help their workers file a claim. This may be because of negligence, or they may be actively trying to prevent you from filing a claim. Your employer may even be uninsured. Employers sometimes retaliate against employees who file workers’ compensation claims.

If you face any of these obstacles when attempting to file your workers’ compensation claim, we can help. Preventing you from filing a claim is a violation of your rights — we will do what it takes to get your benefits.

Requirements to File a Workers’ Compensation Claim in California
