Filing a Work Comp Claim in San Diego

Did you know that employers in the state of California are required to file a claim with their insurance provider within 24 hours of a workplace injury? If you have been injured on the job, and your employer did not file a claim in a timely manner, they are not in compliance with the law. A company’s failure to file a claim by the required deadline may be an important sign that the company or its insurance carrier is unwilling to pay you the benefits you are due, or to help you get the medical services that you need. Having an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer in your corner is the best thing you can do to ensure your rights are well protected.

I’ve already filed a claim. Now what?

Filing a workers’ compensation claim with your employer is an important first step, but please understand this: simply filing a claim is not enough. If you have already filed a workers’ compensation claim, the legal professionals at the  Workers Comp Lawyer Pros joint marketing program will also file an application for adjudication of your claim.

What is adjudication?

Adjudication is the legal process by which a judge reviews evidence and argumentation set forth by opposing parties to come to a decision, which determines rights and obligations between the parties involved. Adjudication is important because it gets a case number assigned to your case, which is necessary to take your case to court for a hearing or other courtroom procedure. Filing an application for adjudication also helps preserve the statute of limitations, which is the deadline for filing a claim after your workplace accident. If you do not report your injury in a timely manner, you may lose the right to claim workers’ compensation.
