Workers compensation claims time limits?
If you are injured at work, you should notify your employer as soon as possible after your injury, so the incident can be recorded and your rights to workers compensation are protected.
If time is needed to be off work because of the injury, you should see your general practitioner and any other doctor as soon as possible. The doctor can complete a certificate of capacity and this certificate can be given to the employer.
A workers compensation claim should be made as soon as possible and certainly within 6 months of the date of accident. Otherwise, there will be an explanation needed for the delay.
