According to Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), thousands of construction employees are injured or killed every year on the job site. Due to the inherently dangerous nature of your work environment, this is not surprising, but it is no less disconcerting. If you have suffered injuries as a result of a construction site accident and are having trouble collecting your workers’ compensation benefits, Accident Recovery Legal Center can help.
It is imperative that you report your injury to your manager as soon as possible after it occurs. Failure to report your injury within 30 days could very likely prevent you from collecting some or all of your workers’ compensation benefits. All you need to do to file a claim is report the injury and ask for the proper form.
Be sure to fill out the form honestly and completely. Submitting incorrect or vague information hurts your chances of collecting all of the compensation you may need to recover fully.
Once you file your claim, your employer has one day to report it to their insurance provider. If they fail or refuse to do this, they are violating your rights as a California state employee. We can help you put pressure on them to file the claim promptly so that you get the care and compensation you need and to which you are entitled. If that doesn’t work, we will take more drastic action to ensure you are covered and compensated.
