Many injured workers forfeit the right to pursue a common law claim and suffer financially because they do not seek legal advice regarding the termination day.
The termination day is one year from the date you made your Workers’ Compensation claim.
The Workers’ Compensation insurer is required by law to notify you in writing of the termination date. You should receive that notice six months after you have made a claim for Workers’ Compensation.
Our experienced lawyers will explain the notice to you and explain the process to protect your common law rights.
If you are advised that you have a common law claim you are entitled to claim compensation for pain and suffering, past and future economic loss, past and future medical expenses, travel expenses and voluntary services provided by family or friends.
