Workers’ compensation is a complex area of law that nonetheless serves a critically important function to those who suffer injuries while on the job.

If you think you may be eligible for workers’ compensation, it is imperative that you act quickly to protect your rights.

Basic Benefits Provided By Workers' Comp Insurance:
  • Medical Care - You have the right to medical care (paid for by your employer) for work-related injuries/illnesses.

  • Permanent Disability - You have the right to receive payments if you don't achieve complete recovery from your injury.
  • Death Benefits - Your children, spouse, or other dependents have the right to receive compensation if you die from an work-related injury or illness.

Workers' Compensation Statute of Limitations in California

When it comes to filing a workers' compensation claim, time is not on your side. Each state enforces a strict time limit for pursuing a workers' comp claim; this time limit is known as the Statute of Limitations.

In California, workers are required to report their injury to their employer within 30 days of their accident. After reporting your injury, you then only have 1 year to file your workers' compensation claim, according to California Labor Code Section 5405.

Since this window is so small, it's important that you contact a workers' compensation lawyer immediately following your injury. We can help get your started on the right path to make sure you meet all of the deadlines set by the state of California.

How to File for Workers' Compensation

  • Make sure to notify your employer of your work-related injury within 30 days
  • Complete the DWC-1 form your employer gives you, or download the form online
  • Give the form to your employer so they can fill out the rest (be sure to retain a copy for your records)

After filing your claim you will need to wait for your employer's insurance company to process the claim. If the claim has not been denied or more information requested within 90 days after submitting the form, it is considered to be approved (Cal. Labor Code § 5402(b), (c) 2018).

Filing for workers' compensation can be a complicated process, especially when it comes to making sure you record your injuries and medical expenses properly. Contact our firm today for assistance!
