Help!! - Jnguzman28 - 04-25-2020

New to the thread. I currently reside in California, on 2/20/2020 I injured myself at work. My employer did not file a incident report. After being in severe pain for a few days I consulted a foot and ankle specialist who concluded that my tendons in my ankle where ruptured. Following the results of the medical evaluation. I emailed the report over to work. They waited until 3/4/2020 to report the incident to worker’s compensation. Workers compensation has not done anything about it. I hired an attorney to assist me in 3/10/2020. I still have not seen a dr. With the exception of my personal dr. I received a letter from worker’s compensation stating my case is being delayed pending investigation. I’m very confused with the process as to when will I be treated. Will I ever get wages recovered. Is this process normal? Any tips or timelines on what to expect.

California allows cases that are in delay to use up $10k in medical treatment.
They have 90 days to deny your claim.
No its not normal. most employers File claims timely.
Make sure you have filed a claim form:

And review all the information contained on the form.

I recommend applying forCalifornia state disability if you are not able to work due to your injury and let them know work comp is not paying you TTD.
