How to Pursue Worker's Compensation In California

As an employee, you are entitled to pursue workers' compensation benefits for work-related injuries or illnesses, regardless of who is at fault. After suffering an injury, you will need to pursue medical attention from a doctor requested by your employer. Under the Workers' Compensation Act of the State of California, injured employees can see their own doctor at the employer's expense under specific circumstances.

If the employee has registered the name of his or her doctor with their employer prior to the injury, the injured party will be able to receive treatment from that physician. Other instances when the injured party's doctor can be used include:

  • 30 days after injury
  • With the employer's permission
  • In a true emergency
  • Employee is denied medical care
