Burlington, KY asked in Workers' Compensation for Kentucky

Q: What is the statute of limitations for a workers comp claim? Please see details.

I was injured on the job/received medical care via workers comp. I saw a chiropractor for 25 visits. W/C stop paying and my condition is worse. accident Dec/Jan 2012. I was hit by a FEDEX truck in the parking lot of a FEDEX facility while using the employee crosswalk. The van driver was fired and the accident is on video. My hip is getting worse all the time. It has been suggested to me by an orthopedic doctor that I need at minimum a scope or possibly hip replacement. I have no medical insurance and simply want to be made whole. I would not seek anything in addition to medical treatment as long as I was 100% health wise as far as my hip is concerned. Thanks

A: You only have two years following the date of injury or the date of the last TTD payment, whichever is later. If you did not get TTD following an injury in January 2012, then your statute of limitations expired January 2014.
