Workers' Compensation Claim Process

You have two years to file a comp claim, starting on the date of your injury or on the date your disability began. Some injuries are not the result of a trauma or accident but occur over time. These types of injuries are generally known as “occupational or repetitive stress” injuries. In these cases, a claimant has two years to file a comp claim from the date they became, or should reasonably have become, aware that their condition(s) was related to some aspect of their work.


You must also notify your employer. You have thirty days from the date of an injury (ex. traumatic injury) , or two years from a date of disability (ex. repetitive stress/occupational exposure), to notify your employer in writing that you have sustained an injury causally related to your work.
