What Is The Filing Process For A California Workers' Compensation Claim?

Suffering an on-the-job injury can be the beginning of a difficult and possibly overwhelming process. Knowing what to do and when to do it can be the key to you securing the full workers' compensation benefits you deserve.

Steps that you should take to ensure that you receive your full benefits include:

  • Seek emergency medical treatment, if needed.
  • Inform your employer of your injury as soon as possible, but no later than 30 days after your injury.
  • File a claim.
  • Secure a medical diagnosis and alternative diagnoses if you feel them necessary.

If you do not file a claim, your employer will send you to its own doctor. It can be very important to receive a second diagnosis from a doctor of your own choosing. Our attorneys know many of the physicians in our area and can help you find one who can provide a fair and unbiased diagnosis.

If your claim is denied, we can assist you with appealing that ruling to the Workers' Compensation Appeals Board.
