Under California workers’ comp laws, claims administrators who handle workers’ compensation claims have a duty to investigate claims in order to accept or deny coverage within 90 days after the date the claim has been received. While some claims administrators investigate workers’ comp claims on their own, others choose to hire an investigator.
One of the responsibilities of investigators is to contact the injured employee and take his or her statement. And that is where many injured workers make mistakes, says the workers’ compensation attorney in Los Angeles William Kropach at The Law Offices of Kropach & Kropach, A Professional Corporation.
