How much time do I have to settle my case when I’m injured at work?

An injured worker has one year from the date of the last payment by his employer for his benefit. If the workers’ compensation company paid a medical bill on December 15 for an accident that occurred in September, then the worker has until December 15 of the next year to settle his case. If he does not settle his case by that date, he must file a lawsuit to preserve his rights!
