Fill out the DWC1 form
and contact the Division of Workers Compensation, at: 1-800-736-7401
. The DWC officer wil probably tel you to send the DWC1 to him/her immediately, and your employer may be in a lot
of trouble for failing to file the claim on your behalf.
Ultimately, you may be determined to be ineligible for Workers Comensation benefits, because the injury was not sufficiently related to your work. Based on your facts, it certainly appears to be a job-related injury, and if the claim goes in your favor, then your bills will be covered by your employer's workers' compensation insurance.
Hope this helps.
Please understand that I "justanswer" questions “about” the law. I have no interest in providing you with anything less than a completely satisfying answer. However, if the law does not favor your unique circumstances, then the best that I can do is to explain what the law "is" and what it "is not."
And, if you need to contact me again, please put my user id on the title line of your question (“ToCustomerrdquo;), and the system will send me an alert. Thanks!
