Treatment after Your Work Injury

After a workplace injury or illness, it is imperative you immediately notify your employer. It ensures that your workers’ compensation process will proceed smoothly, so you receive the proper compensation.

If your work-related injury is not notified within 30 days of the accident, you may forfeit your workers’ compensation benefits. After filing your claim, your employer will direct you to a health care provider. Under California workers’ compensation laws, you are entitled to medical benefits while your case is being investigated. After the initial 30 days, and you still need medical attention you may switch to a different doctor, within your employer’s medical provide network, if one has been established. The workers’ compensation program and your employer will dictate the medical treatment you receive.

The claim administrator will decide whether your medical treatment will be approved. Your plan may be subject to review by a third party retained by the claims administrator (utilization review). If your treatment is denied, you may appeal this denial by requesting an independent medical review.  There are time limits on appeals.

It is important to have a Pleasanton work injury attorney through this process. We make sure your health and right are taken care of at Robbins, Strunk & Cramer .
