Hi everyone, I'm new here and need some help. I live in California and just filed a worker's comp claim a couple of days ago for repetitive stress injury, but now I want to cancel it because the whole process is too overwhelming for me and I think it will do me more harm than good in the long run.
Can I do this without any detriment to myself and to my employer? I haven't heard from a claims adjuster yet. How long does it usually take to hear from one? Can I just send a letter rescinding it or do I have to wait to hear from claims adjuster and tell that person? Can insurance company accuse me of fraud if I do this? Are there legal ramifications?
My pain has been going on for a year and I sought medical treatment using health insurance.
Thank you in advance for any advice and answers.
