delay in filing claim
#1
Injured at work, reported it to employee health (where the problem started - bad vaccination technique), they were dismissive but gave me the number for the WC liason. I decided to seek medical attention through my insurance., and not deal with their bull----. When it did not resolve via conservative measures - and turned out to be quite serious, I filed a claim. I was told I could file up to a year. Does anyone have a similar experience? California.

i don't have a similar experience but labor code 5405 does have a 1 yr limit from: the injury date, the last furnishing of treatment, or the last providing of disability.

did the employer furnish a claim form?

there are numerous exceptions that allow you to file especially if the employer's liability is relatively clear cut--
although it's likely to have to be litigated in order to get the caselaw exceptions applied.
