Protect Your Job
You may be reluctant to report your accident to your employer and to seek medical help because you’re afraid to lose your job. Getting a California workers compensation attorney to file your claim means you can’t be fired – it’s against the law! Remember, if you don’t report your work-related injury to your employer within 30 days from your accident you could make your situation worse. You may lose your right to file a workers’ compensation claim and your injury could worsen if you don’t seek medical help. Plus, it could potentially cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills, disability payments and lost wages.
Please note: Making a false or fraudulent workers’ compensation claim is a felony subject to up to 5 years in prison or a fine of up to $50,000 or double the value of the fraud, whichever is greater, or by both imprisonment and fine.
