Frequently Asked Questions

How long do I have to report an accident to an Employer?

You should immediately report all accidents to your Employer even if you do not think you immediately need medical care. The law requires, in most cases, that you report an accident within 30 days. The longer you wait to report the accident, the more difficult the process could be.

If the claim is denied, then how long do I have to file my claim?

Generally, you have two (2) years or one (1) year after last medical treatment to file a claim. There are always exceptions to this rule depending on circumstances. If you have questions, as to whether you can file a claim call Schlacter Law for your FREE CONSULTATION.
