What should happen after an injury or illness report to employer?

Thursday, May 29th, 2014

What should happen after an injury or illness report to employer? After reporting your injury and getting emergency treatment if needed, the following should occur:

Your employer must give or mail you a Workers’ Compensation Claim Form (DWC 1) within one working day after you report your injury or illness (or your employer learns about the injury). You use this form to request workers’ compensation benefits. If your employer does not give you a claim form that is a red flag that your employer does not intend to meet its legal obligation to provide workers’ compensation benefits.  If this should occur, you need to immediately contact an attorney.

Professional Athletes Rush to File Workers Compensation Claims in California

Thursday, February 6th, 2014

A recent Los Angeles Times article details the mad rush to file workers compensation claims in California by professional athletes following the passage of legislation barring claims by athletes from team outside California. Prior to the passage of AB 1309 professional athletes that played for teams outside of California could file a workers compensation claim in California if they had played just one game in California. Professional athletes have chosen to file their workers compensation claims in California in the past because California is one of the few states that allow claims for injury caused by cumulative trauma. Cumulative injuries are those that occur over time and sometimes take years to reveal themselves.  For example injuries to knees and hips that cause the need for a total knee or hip replacement take many years to medically manifest the disability and the need for medical care. Similarly, high velocity bodily impacts like football blocks and tackles cause brain traumas such as dementia, and ultimately death, but not until tens of years after sports employment ends. All along, the team has known that the player will eventually require a total knee or hip replacement, a wheelchair, or even assisted living care. Yet, after AB1309 the team walks away free of liability transferring the cost of care to the player or, in most cases, taxpayer supported programs.
