Filing A Workers’ Comp Claim

When you have been injured at work, your first priority is to get medical attention. You may not know what to do next, and you may worry about how you will cope with medical expenses and lost wages while you're recovering from your injuries.

The good news is that most workers in California are covered under the state's workers' compensation laws. This system helps ensure that workers will be compensated for their injuries after they are injured on the job.

However, many workers don't think much about the system until they need it. You may not know what to do to claim the benefits you need and deserve.

Report Injuries As Soon As Possible

To make sure you get your benefits, you should report any work-related injury as soon as possible to your employer. If you are unable to do so, try to get someone else to report your injury to your supervisor. Any delay in reporting your injury can make it harder to recover your benefits in a timely manner.

Your employer must provide you with the form you need to make an official claim for benefits. Your employer will provide you with a list of approved medical providers who can treat you.
