Question: How long do I have to file a construction accident claim?
People ask all the time, if I’m in a construction site accident and I’m injured, how much time do I have? If you’re employer has Workers’ Compensation insurance, there are certain things that need to be done right away. Typically, within seven days, it needs to be reported. We tell people to report right away; don’t wait at all. If you don’t report the claim within seven days, your employer can dispute it and there are certain administrative guidelines that might affect your ability to receive full compensation. If you’re employer doesn’t have Workers’ Compensation insurance, then you might have what’s called a non-subscriber claim. In other words, you can sue your employer directly if you get hurt on the job. Like most lawsuits, you have up to two years to bring those cases, but you need to report it early and you need an experienced team to investigate all of the facts and circumstances so that you can figure out where you can get your relief.
