Limitations and denials
Statute of limitations
By law, the claim is usually held open for 12 years from the date of the injury or from the date of the last payment to you, whichever is later, should you continue to incur expenses. It is recommended that you save your record of the last WC payment for 12 years.
Claim denial – injured worker’s rights
If your claim is denied, either in part or in full, and you believe that you should receive further benefits, your dispute may be handled through a formal hearing or through an informal alternative dispute resolution process.
