WORKERS COMP SETTLEMENT – TIME LIMIT IS ONLY 5 YEARS

In 2006, the statue of limitations or the time limit to settle a claim was changed from 10 years to 5 years. This is EXTREMELY important for you to understand and talk to your attorney today. The clock begins ticking after the last date of benefits paid. For example, that could be your last date paid of temporary total or the last bill paid for your medical treatment. Unfortunately, an injured worker will seek our help to settle their comp claim after it has expired. Do you want the BWC to keep what should be paid to you in a settlement? Pay attention to your past claims and the dates of benefits paid. Then, talk to an experience workers comp lawyer today. ​
