California Workers Compensation Claims

In California, even companies with a single employee are required to carry workers compensation insurance. The state also requires companies to follow very specific rules for workers’ compensation claims. For example, your employer must provide you with a workers’ compensation form within one business day after the injury or illness is reported. They face additional deadlines for returning a copy of the completed form to you and forwarding it to the claims administrator. Claims are monitored by the state’s Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC).

The process of getting your workers’ compensation benefits can be complicated and difficult to navigate, especially when you’re sick or injured. A Los Angeles workers’ compensation lawyer from Lerner and Rowe can take care of all of your legal needs so that you can focus on what matters most–your health.

In an ideal world, your workers’ compensation benefits would be approved for a reasonable amount of money and length of time. You’d have the time off from work you need to recover and you’d receive further assistance if you’re unable to return to work.

That’s not always how it works, of course. In the real world, the company’s doctor could downplay the extent of your injuries. Your benefits could be denied, or you could be pressured to return to work too soon. Additionally, you may be granted benefits for only a brief period of time when you’re disabled for an extended period, or even permanently.
