San Diego Workers Compensation Appeals Board: The Process San Diego Work Comp Lawyer Mark C. Blane explains: When an injured worker is injured on the job by someone or something connected with his employer, then he or she has a workers compensation claim. This means the injured worker has the right under California "exclusive remedy rule" to pursue his or her rights under the California work comp system with medical care, and payment of medical bills associated with that medical care. The entire work comp system is governed by the State of California under what is known as the California Labor Code, and all hearings, adjudications, and appeals are managed under an administrative court known as the Appeals Board. In San Diego, it is called the San Diego Workers Compensation Appeals Board, or WCAB for short. The main court in San Diego is located in Mission Valley.
