Injured on the Job-Feb 1st, 06
Filed W.C. Claim-Feb 06
W.C. Denied Claim-May 06
Hired Attorney-June 06
W.C. Accepted Claim-December 06
First Disability payment from W.C. December 06
With that being said, I know that a California W.C. Claim (payments) are good for 2 years.
MY assumption was that 2 years starts on the 1st Check received from W.C. (which was December 06).
So I would think that payments should be received through December of 08.
Am I mistaken here?
I asked my Attorney and "originally" he said February of 08, but then cited a Case Law where it WAS 2 years from the 1st payment.
He told me to "cover my bases" I should call California State Employment and get Registered for California State Disability.
Originally I when W.C. denied my Claim, I filed with SDI (California State Disability) and they paid me until W.C. took over my case. W.C. paid BACK the money that SDI had paid to me.
Hope I haven't confused anyone.
I'm looking for clarification.
