Workers’ Compensation Lawyer in Los Angeles
Hundreds of Millions Recovered for Our Clients
In the state of California, most employers are required to provide insurance benefits to protect their employees in the event of an accident. If you are hurt, injured, or exposed to hazardous materials while working, you may be eligible to receive financial compensation under the insurance protection of your employer. This insurance coverage is commonly known as “workers’ comp.”
How to Request & Receive Workers’ Comp in California
If you have been injured at work, you must report your injury in order to request and receive workers’ compensation. It is important to remember that workers’ compensation does not need proof of liability or negligence in order to receive financial compensation. You only need to prove that your injury is work-related or occurred while you were on the job.
Typically, the workers’ comp filing process includes the following steps:
- Get medical treatment as soon as possible.
- Report your injury or stress-related illness as soon as you display symptoms or as soon as you learn the injury has been caused by your line of work.
- Once you have notified your employer, you employer must give you a compensation claim form within 1-working day of your injury.
- With the help of an attorney, submit your completed form to your insurance company.
- Your insurance company should send you a status report within 14 days.
If your employer does not learn about your work-related injury within 30 days, you could be permanently barred from requesting financial benefits. If your work-related injury was caused by negligence or an unsafe condition, our legal team can help you pursue additional compensation through a personal injury claim.
