Is There Any Limit as to When A Claim Must Be Filed?

Attorneys Working Inside Time Limits for Filing Workers’ Comp Claims across New Jersey

You must file a claim within two years from the date of accident, last date of authorized medical treatment, or last date of workers’ compensation benefits paid to you, whichever date is later.

In an occupational claim (where your condition is the result of exposure or the WEAR and TEAR of your employment over a period of time rather than a specific accident or injury), you generally have two years from the date you knew or should have known that you had a work-related occupational medical condition. These claims raise time sensitive issues and your rights can be permanently lost if you do not act within the proper statute of limitations.

For assistance with your workers’ compensation case, the knowledgeable attorneys at Petro Cohen can help.  Call us for a free consultation by phone at 888-675-7607 or complete our online form and someone will be in touch with you promptly.
