The Initial Workers’ Compensation Application Process In California
Have you been injured on the job? First, seek medical attention. Don’t wait to receive treatment simply because you are worried your employers’ insurance won’t pay. Let us concern ourselves with seeking compensation on your behalf. It is most important that you do not allow yourself to get more injured, or allow a wound to go untreated.
Then, call 408-341-6025 to allow our lawyer to walk you through the initial application process for your claim. At the Law Offices of Andrew B. Shin, we have a reputation for being consistently aggressive advocates for our clients.
The steps involved in a workers’ compensation claim are as follows:
- Receive medical attention for serious injuries.
- Notify your employer of your injury.
- File a claim form with your employer.
- Your employer will then return the claim with approval or denial.
- If approved, your attorney ensures you are adequately covered for damages.
- If denied, your attorney takes your case to be appealed.
You Can Receive Up To $10,000 In Treatment While A Claim Is Pending
Legally, you can continue treatment for your injuries even if your claim hasn’t yet been approved. Employment law covers your injuries for up to $10,000. If treatment is needed, please make sure you take it. Your employer is not legally allowed to punish you for your injury, or for seeking medical treatment.
