    Default California Labor Code 5402

    My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: CA on 06/24/2019
    I received a Letter of Delay with a 90 day date listed as 09/21/2019. I still have not heard whether the case has been accepted or rejected and the 90 days end date is less than 2 days away. How far to the end can they draw the 90 days out? I check my email and snail mail religiously and haven't recieved any phone calls from my adjuster lately. Do they have to inform me in writing as opposed to a phone call? This has been a long 90 days and I need them to pay me! Will I need to call to get my payments initiated if deemed compensable after the 90 day wait period?

    Yes, see below.

    (b) Insofar as practicable, the notice of potential eligibility for benefits required by this section and the claim form shall be a single document and shall instruct the injured employee to fully read the notice of potential eligibility.

    If they fail to cooperate, have no further contact with that adjuster and retain a lawyer.
