How Long After An Injury Do I Have To Report It To My Employer?
A claim for compensation for disability on account of an injury, other than an occupational disease and occupational infection, shall not be allowed unless filed with the commission within two years from the date of the work related injury. If, during the twoyear period following the filing of the claim, the injured employee receives no weekly benefit compensation and receives no medical treatment resulting from the alleged injury, the claim shall be denied thereafter.
