I'm in a bit of a pickle and would like to know if anyone knows the statue of limitations on filing a claim in the state of California.
Here's a bit of back story on what happened; I work for an old family friend at a medium sized business. I've been at the company for over 10 years now. About 2 years ago I hurt my back moving some boxes. I've been back and forth from specialist to specialist off and on since that time but have been in constant pain. At the time of the injury i had been prepared to file with disability but was asked to handle this problem internally and that my boss (and friend) would cover the medical expenses. Recently our company canceled the medical coverage for all employees due to non-payment.
I'm now wondering what i can do, if anything, to continue receiving help. Do i qualify for cobra coverage? Is there any avenue i can take with the disability insurance? Or is this something that i will ultimately have to take to court?
Thank you in advance for any advice.
