Time is of the Essence for Injured Employees Filing Claims
http://www.MortonLawyers.com Following an injury at work, employees often try to ignore the pain—hoping it will go away—or deal with it on their own instead of notifying their employers. But sometimes the pain only gets worse, causing workers to incur medical bills and time away from work. This is why there is a workers’ compensation law in Idaho—to help injured workers receive benefits they are entitled to.
Unfortunately, if a worker waits too long to report his injury, he may be barred from ever recovering benefits through a workers’ compensation claim. In fact, injured employees only have 60 days from the date of the accident or onset of illness to notify their employers of their work-related injury. Whether your injury occurred as a result of an industrial accident or occupational illness, time is of the essence.
Navigating a workers’ compensation claim can be difficult, which is why it is best to have someone in your corner looking out for you.
