Is there a time limitation on filing my workers’ compensation case?

Yes. Workers’ compensation case just like other types of injury cases, are governed by what is commonly referred to as the “statute of limitations”. In general, workers’ compensation cases must be filed within one year from the date of accident or two years from the date that you last received workers’ compensation weekly benefits. In cases where the employer provided medical care, an injured worker has one year from the last treatment date to file a claim. The employer is also entitled to notice of your injury within thirty days. The Statute of Limitations in workers’ compensation cases is a tricky area of the law and must be appropriately evaluated by a qualified workers’ compensation attorney. If you are considering bringing a workers’ compensation claim, it is imperative that you contact us as quickly as possible so that we have sufficient time to thoroughly investigate your claim prior to the expiration of the Statute of Limitations.
