    Workers Comp injuries are to be reported and filed immediately. The longer you wait the more potential problems you may have with the claim as this would seem suspicious. This is not to say late reporting does not happen but there will be additional investigating. In most cases you could potentially go as much as a year but rules vary by state. If you have a legitimate WC claim I suggest you report the issue right away.

    Each state has it's statue of limitation on Workers Comp. claim.
    It's highly advisable to report your injury as soon as possible. After 30-45 days you may loose your right for a workers comp. claim. It is also known, that an injury may show up after a prolong time, like limited poisoning received during an employee visit of warehouse, where mercury was spilled. In that case, you are better to get a check up and report any injury as soon as the accident was discovered.
