if you reported an injury and are now retired, can you file a claim. I worked in ca. and now live in fl. Injury was reported in march of 2009

retirement has nothing to do with filing but time limits do.
did you file a claim form? was the claim accepted or denied?
generally in california you have a year from the last furnishing of benefits to pursue an old claim or 5 yrs to bring litigation.

I reported the injury to my right shoulder but told them I didnt need to see a doctor at the time and went back to work. Now 6 months into retirement I injured it and was wondering if my employer was still liable.

no. workers comp is not health insurance and doesn't cover your shoulder; it covers only the shoulder event in 2009.
you've had a new injury outside of the job and it would not be the responsibility of a prior employer.
the fact that it is to a same area of the body doesn't make it a comp claim.
