Time limit to tell someone that I was hurt
I hurt my back on a Friday (at the hospital) then went out of town for 3 days. The nurse is not in on a Monday or Thursday. So, I call her on Wednesday and she denied my claim because she say I waited too long. Also, I fell down my stairs a week ago and she say it could be from that. What are my rights?

    According to law you have up to 120 days to report your injury. If you report the injury within the first 21 days, wage loss is potentially payable from the date of injury forward. If you report the injury between day 22 and 120, wage loss benefits are potentially payable from the date of notice forward.
