Fight For Your Workers’ Compensation Benefits
To preserve your right to collect workers’ compensation after a workplace accident, you should report the incident to your employer within 30 days. If the injury has developed over time — such as repetitive stress injuries — the 30-day requirement dates to when you were diagnosed. Generally, a claim should be made to the State Board of Workers’ Compensation within one year of the date of the accident, one year of the last provision of medical benefits and two years of the last payment of income benefits.
