File a California Workers’ Compensation Claim in Court
When you are injured at work, your employer is responsible under California law to help you recover from the injuries by paying workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits are payments that cover a variety of different expenses, such as medical bills and lost wages. However, many employees are confused about how exactly they can get these benefits. Employers are often not very forthcoming with details on how to file workers’ compensation claims and may even provide intentionally false information to deter you from filing a claim. There are three main ways to pursue a workers’ compensation claim in California: (1) request reimbursement from the insurance company, or (2) file a case in court.
