Unfortunately, workplace injuries happen all the time. We know that because the Bureau of Labor Statistics states there were 2.8 million workplace injuries or illnesses reported during the latest reporting year.
However, workers’ compensation insurance is almost always there to help injured workers. Workers’ compensation claims are considered “no-fault.” This means that worker injuries are eligible for coverage regardless of how they happened and who was at fault (as long as the injury occurred at work and there was no gross negligence on the part of the employee).
We also know that some claims get delayed.
If an injured worker receives a “Notice of Delay” after they file a workers’ compensation claim, this could mean a few things:
Employers and insurance carriers are afforded 90 days from the time a workers’ comp claim is made to approve or deny the claim.
Yes, by law, your employer or carrier has to cover all of your medical costs during the delay period until your claim is denied or approved. This includes up to $10,000 in medical cost coverage.
Follow your doctor’s orders completely. Do not give your employer or insurance carrier any reason to deny your claim. You should consider speaking with a Riverside delayed claim lawyer about what your best options will be if your claim is denied.
