How Long do I Have to File My Workers’ Compensation Claim?
Hi, I’m Craig Rosasco and I’m an attorney and I practice in the state of New York handling both workers’ compensation and disability claims. Today, I’m going to discuss with you briefly as to the statute of limitations or how long do I have to file a workers’ compensation case after my accident here in New York State. The law states that you have two years from the date of your accident to file a claim. No ifs, ands or buts.
As of today, February 4, 2011, that is what the statute reads. It could change in the future, so when you view this video, you’re going to want to call me and check to see if your claim is still within the parameters of the state regulations and statutes as to what time you have to file. If you’re planning on filing an occupational claim, that’s wherein you suffered a repetitive injury, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, it’s one of two things. The latter one, it would be either two years from when you’re first treated for the condition or your disability began or within two years from when you do or should have known that your work-related condition was a result of your work exposure.
What I want you to do is I want you to call me either way and I’ll fill you in with the latest updates on the law. I can be reached at 1-877-NY-DBLAW or nydisabilitylaw.com.
