When you are hurt on the job or receive a diagnosis of a work-related illness, you have the right to file a workers’ compensation claim. One of the most important steps to ensure you have the strongest claims possible is to meet important deadlines for filing your claim and notifying your employer.
In Philadelphia, Pottsville or anywhere in Pennsylvania, our lawyers of Krasno, Krasno & Onwudinjo can help you understand your obligations under Pennsylvania’s statute of limitations for filing a workers’ compensation claim.
You Must File Your Claim In A Timely Manner
Pennsylvania workers’ compensation law requires you to inform your employer of your injury or illness diagnosis within 120 days. You then have three years from the date of your injury to file a workers’ compensation claim. If you wait longer than three years, you could lose your right to file a claim.
If you have missed an important deadline, do not give up on your claim. Our law firm has built a reputation as one of the most respected workers’ compensation firms in the region, and our attorneys can determine if you qualify for any exemptions. Pennsylvania has extremely worker-friendly workers’ comp laws, and we can inform you of your options to continue pursuing your claim.
