When you need medical treatment for an injury at work, you can often be left holding substantial hospital and doctor’s bills, and be wondering how you can afford to recover when you need to get back to work and settle those debts. Medical bills are an extremely stressful part of any injury, and rather than trying to cope by yourself, you need to file a compensation claim with your employer. To make the process easier, we recommend that you make use of a team of worker’s compensation lawyers in Los Angeles who can guide you through the stages you need to complete to receive compensation for your injury.
Beginning Your Claim
If you have never tried to file a claim for workers compensation before, then you may not even know where to begin. This is where Belal Hamideh Law can assist you with starting the process. In California, workers need to complete two stages in order to advance their claim. The first stage is reporting the injury you have received to your employer. This means filing a report with your employer, including with the safety branch of your workplace, with supervisors or managers, and with the HR team. When you report that you have been injured at work, your employer will provide you with a form that requires details of your claim, and this will be delivered to the insurance provider for your company. This form needs to be completed with full details of your injury, and the treatment required to get you back on your feet.
Settling Your Injury
This form is the key to achieving compensation. We have seen some workers who are confused about finding the form, and believe that reporting their injury to their company is the same thing. However, if you wish to obtain full benefits from your injury, you must obtain this form from your employer, fill it in, and then file it with the court. Not only must you complete this process quickly enough to meet the filing deadline, but you also need to do it accurately, so that your employer cannot dispute your compensation claim. In many cases, it is important that you make use of an attorney to assist you in completing the form, both to avoid missing the filing date and to ensure that the claim is completed correctly.
