Can the insurer be fined for paying me late?

If the Department of Industrial Accidents determines that a workers' compensation insurer has failed to pay or contest payment of a claim in a timely manner, a $200 fine may be assessed, payable to the injured worker. Further delays in payment may result in additional fines, payable to the Workers' Comp Trust Fund.
