Statutes Of Limitations And Duty To Notify: Lawyers Serving The Inland Empire, San Gabriel Valley And All Of Southern California
Workers’ compensation laws involve very serious deadlines. If you miss these time-sensitive deadlines, you can lose your right to workers’ compensation benefits. Whereas many other areas of law have deadlines that may not pass for months or even years, workers’ compensation can involve deadlines as short as 24 hours.
Workers’ compensation law, with some exceptions, gives you one year to file your claim. For this reason, you want to speak with the experienced legal team at The Law Offices of Scott Warmuth. The sooner you contact us, the sooner we can do the work needed to protect your rights and start building your case.

One kind of time-sensitive deadlines is a statute of limitations. A statute of limitations is the amount of time the law allows you to file your claim. Once this period is up, you can no longer bring your claim. This limitation can often be as little as one year. This time limit can vary, however, and can depend on the kind of injury and on when you actually realized you were hurt.
These factors themselves, however, can involve complicated legal rules requiring careful legal analysis by a professional. None of these rules are intuitive. Our experience legal team can provide you with the skilled guidance you need to properly understand your obligations with respect to meeting a statute of limitations. Sometimes, we have even helped people make this deadline even after they themselves think they have missed it.
Another deadline critical to workers’ compensation is called the duty to notify the employer of the injury. This duty in California can be measured in terms of days, if not hours, depending on when you were injured and how long it has been since you were injured.
If you do not know about your duty to notify, you can call us as soon as possible. We have the experience necessary to advise you on this point quickly so you can meet this deadline in the most effective way available. If you fail to meet this deadline, you can lose your right to file your workers’ compensation claim.
