CA DWC Posts Database of Dismissed Liens

San Francisco, CA – The Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) recently announced that it has posted a searchable database of liens dismissed by operation of law per Labor Code §4903.05(c)(2).

As detailed previously in the DWC’s announcement of the dismissal of 292,000 unresolved liens, Senate Bill 1160 amended Labor Code section 4903.05(c) to require lien claimants to file a declaration verifying the legitimacy of liens for medical treatment or medical-legal expenses, as part of the bill’s reform measures to combat fraud in the workers’ compensation system.

Claimants who had filed liens between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2016, were required to file the declarations by July 1, 2017, to avoid having those liens dismissed.
