If you get injured or sick because of work, your employer is required by California law to pay for worker's compensation benefits. You could get injured by;
     A) Injuring your wrist from doing the same motion over and over.
     B) Falling and injuring your spine and/or extremities at work.
     C) Being involved in a motor vehicle accident while making deliveries.
    
What to do if you are injured at work;
     1) Report the injury to your employer/supervisor right away.
     2) Get emergency treatment if you need it.
     3) Fill out Employee's First Report Of Injury (DWC Form-001).
    
Unless the employer or the employer's insurance has established a "medical provider network," the employer has the initial selection of the physician however the employee can change to another physician after 30 days.
     
Any employee who has notified his/her employee in writing prior to their work related injury that they have a personal physician and has provided non-occupational health care coverage, has the right to be treated by his/her personal physician after the job related injury.
    
The right to be treated by one's personal physician at the outset of injury also applies if the employer has failed to post the "Notice Of Workers' Compensation Rights" as required by California law.
