I didn’t think I would have to file a claim, but now I do. What is the statute of limitations for filing a claim?
Injured workers must report their injury to their employer within 120 days. After that, workers are ineligible for benefits. That is not the only time limitation. If you report your injury within 21 days, you can still be awarded benefits as of the date of the injury; however, if you report your injury 22 days or more after, you can only be awarded benefits as of your reporting date. Finally, if your claim has been denied, you have three years from the date of injury to file an appeal.
