How long do you have to file a workers compensation claim in California? 2 Answers as of November 25, 2010

I had an accident at work about 8 months ago in which I fell and badly twisted my ankle. I had to take a week off to recover and was not compensated for it. I did not seek compensation because I tripped over something and fell and figured that was my fault, but a friend recently told me that something very similar happened to him, and his time off was paid. Can I still file a claim, or has it been too long?
