Q:How much time do I have to report a work-related injury or illness?
A:In most states, you have 30-90 days to report the situation to your employer, but the law varies by state. You should always report your injury in writing and should keep a copy as proof. To learn more about the laws in your area, contact our firm to discuss your case with an attorney.
Q:What does workers’ compensation cover?
