Filing for Workers’ Compensation in California

Workers’ compensation is a state-regulated insurance program that is monitored by the Division of Workers’ Compensation. This agency is responsible for reviewing claims and minimizing the “adverse impact of work-related injuries on California employees and employers.”

A sick or injured employee can benefit from 5 different types of workers’ compensation benefits:

  1. Medical benefits
  2. Temporary disability benefits
  3. Permanent disability benefits
  4. Supplemental job displacement benefits
  5. Death benefits

A successful claim can yield benefits that account for an employee’s medical bills and lost wages. Unfortunately, most workers’ compensation claims are denied by employers and their insurance companies. For example, an insurance company may deny your claim if they believe your injury isn’t work-related or simply isn’t serious enough to warrant benefits. Even so, you can’t give up hope. Our Certified Workers’ Compensation Specialists can help you file a Declaration of Readiness to Proceed and guide you through each step of the appeal process.

You can receive benefits for a variety of illnesses and injuries, including:

  • Occupational illnesses and diseases
  • Slip and fall injuries
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Neck and spinal cord injuries
  • Repetitive trauma injuries
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Preexisting conditions exacerbated by work conditions
  • Job-related mental health conditions
  • Joint conditions
  • Hearing or vision loss

Once you’ve visited a doctor, it’s imperative that you give your employer a written notification regarding your illness or injury. At that point, your employer has 24 hours to send you a claim form. If your employer fails to complete this step, you can download the form from the Division of Workers’ Compensation website. At this point, you should absolutely contact a qualified attorney if you haven’t already done so.
