Statute of Limitations

Workers’ compensation cases, just like other types of cases, have specific timelines that must be followed in order to pursue a claim.

The first important deadline you need to be aware of is that an injury must be reported to your employer within 90 days of the injury. Our recommendation is that you report the injury as soon as possible. Ideally, you would report the injury immediately after it happened, so that you can get the medical care you need right away. We understand there are reasons why people might delay reporting the injury but we encourage you to report it as soon as possible to avoid the 90-day deadline and to avoid raising questions about how the injury actually happened.

Under South Carolina law, Conway workers’ compensation cases must be submitted within two years of the injury. If you submit a claim after this deadline, your case may be denied outright. This makes it important to be sure that you submit your claim before the 2 year anniversary of your injury.

There are other timelines tied to workers’ compensation claims that your Conway workers’ compensation lawyer can help you understand and comply with. Working with an experienced attorney from the start can help you eliminate the worry about deadlines and focus on getting the medical care you need to get back to work.
