If you are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, you ideally should notify your employer of your work injury within 14 days of the date that you were injured, but no later than 90 days after the work accident or onset of injury. If you need to file a claim petition with the state to contest your employer’s denial of your claim or termination of your benefits, you have two years from the date of a work accident or the last date that you were paid workers’ comp benefits to file your petition with the state. Finally, if you have a personal injury claim against a third party for your work injury, such as if you were hit by another motorist, you have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit against the liable party or parties.
