Report the incident: In California, you have 30 days to report the accident to your employer. This ought to be the very first thing you do when you suspect you have been hurt. Even if you file within 30 days, the longer you wait can jeopardize your chances at a successful outcome.
Seek medical attention: Get help right away from a doctor or hospital for your injury. Since workers’ compensation is designed to cover such expenses, only worry about obtaining receipts of any medical attention you receive to later incorporate into your claim.
File a claim report: You should be provided a claim to fill out by your employer. Be thorough. After about two weeks, you should hear back from your employer’s insurer regarding your claim. Whether you are a full- or part-time employee, it is your right to file a claim for compensation.
