In the past, this proved to be a very difficult situation and further added to the difficulties encountered by the injured worker. Too often, our clients have been delayed or denied benefits due to the mean spirit of the employer. Now, the field has been leveled a bit.
To find the insurance company, access http://www.laworks.net/WorkersComp/OWC_EmployerMenu.asp and click on “Employers’ Workers’ Compensation Coverage Verification”. Once there, you can enter all or part of the name of the employer and a search will soon reveal the name of the insurance company and the insurance policy number. A quick Google search will then give you the contact information for the insurance company.
