The Workers' Comp Process

Seeking Compensation for Injuries at Work

After you have suffered an injury at work, there is a specific process that you must go through before you will be able to claim the workers' compensation that is available under California law. It is important to take action immediately after you have been injured because state law limits the compensation that can be recovered if you do not inform your employer of your injury within 30 days.

Once you have reported your injury to your employer, your employer should provide you with a workers' compensation claim form that you can fill out and return to your employer. It is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible, and you will be entitled to receive up to $10,000 in medical treatments once you have filed a claim. This amount will be available to you even before your claim is approved so that you can have the medical treatment you need during the time immediately following your accident.

Call a Skilled Oakland Workers' Comp Attorney

The process of filing for workers' compensation can become extremely complicated and you may face a review by the claims administrator who will question you on the validity of your claim. Claims administrators are either employed by your employer or by the workers' compensation insurance company, and their primary job is to determine whether your accident was actually work-related and what your claim will be worth. It is wise to have the help of an Oakland workers' compensation lawyer during this process so that you can achieve a swift resolution to your claim.

It is common for disputes to arise during the review process, especially when the claims administrator does not believe that your injuries were related to work.

The dedicated legal team at The Law Offices of Jonathan M. Brand will defend your story and your rights under the law so that you can recover the compensation you need and deserve for your pain and suffering.
