Providing the Guidance You Deserve
If you were injured on the job, you might be entitled to compensation. Under the California Workers’ Compensation Act, injured workers are to be provided with compensation and benefits to help them recover and make up for any lost income. Unfortunately, the workers’ compensation process is difficult to navigate without the proper guidance, which often results in victims receiving much less than they deserve. That’s where the Law Offices of Delitala come in. Our firm is here to provide the personalized attention and guidance you deserve at this time.
Call Law Offices of Delitala to schedule a consultation with our workers’ compensation attorney in San Marcos.
Can I Be Fired for Getting Injured on the Job?
According to the Workers’ Compensation Act, employers are prohibited from firing any employees for sustaining injuries on the job. Further, employees who testify or participate in their coworkers’ workers’ compensation cases are not to be fired for their participation. Anyone who is discriminated against or fired for becoming injured or assisting a coworker who was injured should seek legal guidance immediately.
The Workers’ Compensation Claim Process
In order to receive the monetary compensation and benefits you are entitled to, you must go through the claim process. Unfortunately, the claim process is complex and is essentially designed in favor of the employer. To ensure you meet all requirements and your case is as strong as possible, we recommend hiring a workers’ compensation lawyer in San Marcos.
At the Law Offices of Delitala, our attorney has extensive experience working on cases such as yours. She provides guidance every step of the way and fights for the compensation you deserve.
Below is the claims process:
- Notify your employer: Report your injury to your manager, supervisor, or superior right away. This must be done within 30 days of the injury.
- Submit DCW-1 form: The claim form contains information about yourself and your injury. It needs to be submitted to your employer.
- Complete Application for Adjudication of Claim: This application must be completed and submitted to the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board.
- Complete the Declaration Pursuant to the Labor Code: In this form, you swear that what you claim is true.
