Is there a time limit for making a claim to the Board?
Yes. The law says you must file a claim within 6 months from the day of the accident. But if you did not know right away that you were injured or sick, you must file a claim within 6 months from the day you find out that your injury or disease was work?related.
Make your claim to the Board as soon as possible. If you do not have a Form 6 and you are close to the 6-month time limit, write a letter to the Board with the details of your injury. Also ask for a Form 6 to be sent to you.
If the 6 months have already passed, make your claim right away by writing to the Board. Explain why you did not file earlier. The Board has the power to allow a claim to be filed late.
If the Board does not allow your claim because it is late, get legal help right away.Previous page Next page
