Fighting for the Compensation You Deserve

From walking you through the claims process to fighting for the compensation you deserve, we work with you every step of the way.
What Injuries Are Covered Under Workers’ Compensation?
The Workers’ Compensation Act is designed to provide compensation for California workers who have sustained work-related injuries. Injuries are considered work related if an event or exposure at work caused or contributed to the resulting injury, illness, or condition. They can be injuries that are a result of prolonged exposure, repetitive actions, or accidents. Additionally, work-related injuries can be pre-existing conditions that were aggravated or worsened by work events.
Workers’ compensation covers most, but not all injuries that occur on the job. Some stress-related injuries or illnesses and injuries or that occurred after an employee was laid off are not covered under workers’ compensation. To determine if you are qualified to seek compensation for your injuries, reach out to the Law Offices of Delitala today. Our Anaheim workers’ compensation lawyer is here to provide clarity at this trying time.
What Is the Claims Process?
By law, employers are required to provide you with medical treatment for any injuries that occurred on the job, whether they were caused by repetitive strain or severe accidents. In order to receive this compensation, you must file a workers’ compensation claim. This claim process is complex and can be incredibly overwhelming, so having an experienced attorney on your side can bring you peace of mind at a time like this.
Below is the claims process:
- Report injury: You need to report your injury to your supervisor, manager, or superior immediately after it occurs. Reporting an injury more than 30 days after it occurs significantly reduces your chances of receiving workers’ compensation.
- Submit claim form (DCW-1): A claim form detailing your personal information and information about your injury must be submitted to your employer.
- Application of Adjudication of Claim: This must be served to the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board (WCAB).
- Complete Declaration Pursuant to the Labor Code: With this declaration, you swear that what you are reporting is true.
The Law Offices of Delitala has experience going through the claims process and can provide guidance and support every step of the way. Give our Anaheim workers’ compensation attorney a call to schedule your free consultation today.
