    Default Should I File a WC Claim Now

    My question involves workers compensation law for the state of: California. It's almost a year since I hurt my back and have had 4 surgeries. I did not originally claim Works Comp. The injury is degenerative disc and the doctors have told me I shouldn't go back to lifting boxes. He believes work contributed to my injury. My work won't allow me to go back until I am 100%. So no light duty. What are my pros and cons for filing a claim now. before the 1 year statue of limitations is up.

    You can file but the question I have is, did the injury occur at work? You said the doctor believes that work contributed to the injury? by making it worse? or causing it?

    I believe it did. But I never told work it was. because I thought they would look down on me. I thought originally I would have the surgery and go back. But my doctors are not reccomending it. And I had complections and instead of one surgery I have had four.
