Help!!
#1
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.
I am not an attorney.Anything I write should not be considered legal advice.I am writing from my own personal experiences,which is not from any sort of legal background. You should consult with an attorney over legal issues. In California, if you cannot get an attorney you can consult with an I&A officer.
