Statute of Limitations for Workers' Compensation

After a work place injury occurs it is important to consider certain time limits that will apply.

Under Florida law, after a work place injury occurs or the worker becomes aware of the injury, the worker has 30 days in which to report the injury to the employer.

As a general rule, a person has two years from the date of the injury to file a claim. The failure to report the injury within 30 days may be used as a defense against the claim regardless of the two-year statute of limitations for filing a claim.

The eligibility for benefits may also be eliminated one year from the date the injured worker last received a wage replacement check or an approved medical care/treatment.
