What is the statutory citation for the statute of limitations for filing a workers compensation? What starts the statute of limitations for "bad faith" against an insurance claims service like Chubb? and what is that statute's citation? Thank you Rich xxxxxxx
Is a first report of injury the same as filing with the W.C. Bureau for a disputed claim? W
What is the Statuteory Citation that says when a claim for compensation benefits for a work related injury must be filed?
Here in Michigan, an employee files a notice of injury, the employer then files a form with the state of the injury. No need to dispute the claim until the employer opposes paying workman's compensation benefits. At that point, the employee files a claim with the W.C. Bureau.
