There is no time limit when it comes as to how back the Workers Compensation Agency can go back when requesting medical records and as long as, the request for the medical records is relevant to the current worker's compensation claim, they can request medical records going back to the person's birth.
I am very sorry to provide you with this bad news, but please understand that I do have professional obligation to provide JustAnswer.com customers with correct answers, even when answer is not favorable to the customer.

Thank you for your follow up.
Generally, the Workers Compensation can review medical records and if the Worker's Compensation determines that the currently claimed injury occurred in 2011 then the claim can be denied.
If they determine that the prior injury had healed and the current claim shows new injury or the current injury seriously aggravated prior injury, then the claim should not be denied, but can be reduced, based on the extent of the prior injury that still existed at the time new injury took place.
I wish you the best of luck!
