How to File a Workers' Comp Claim in Lancaster or Palmdale
- If you are injured at work, it is important that you immediately inform your supervisor. Delaying in informing your employer may actually harm your chances of recovering the full financial compensation you deserve.
- Make sure you seek medical attention immediately. Your employer may provide you with a list of providers covered by your workers' compensation insurance.
- After you inform your employer, they should provide you with a workers' compensation claim within one working day. If they do not provide you with the claim form, you may get one from the Division of Workers' Compensation website (DWC Form 1) or may request one from your employer.
- File your workers' compensation claim with your employer as soon as possible.
