If you are injured at work, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention from a licensed professional. Additionally, it is very important to report the injury to your employer as soon as possible. To receive benefits, you must report your injury within 30 days. But what happens next?

HOW DOES THE PROCESS WORK?
Filing a workers’ comp claim involves the following steps:
Get the correct paperwork. In most cases, your employer will give you these documents. If not, you can find them on the Department of Industrial Relations website.
Give the completed form to your employer. It is also wise to make a copy for yourself.
Wait for a letter from the insurance company. This can take up to two weeks. When you receive the letter, you will learn whether your claim has been accepted or denied.
If you claim is rejected, or if you believe you should receive additional benefits, do not hesitate to contact our firm. The skilled lawyers at Bentley & More LLP, are licensed to practice law in the state of California and the state of Illinois.
