The reason we're asking is because we believe there is or was negligence in behalf of the building owner and not having a Pest Control Maintenance in place. This happened last October of 2014 , has this reached the statue of limitations?
In California, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is two years from the date of the injury. While you may still have time to file a lawsuit, I do not know if you have the type of claim a lawyer would consider taking, unless there was a major spider infestation in the building.

A local workers comp lawyer can investigate wc benefits, as well as the third party claim.
You can make a claim for worker's compensation claim against the employer and employer will be obligated to pay your temporary disability payments and medicals.
As to claim against LL,you will have to prove negligence of LL and the Statute of limitations for such claim is two years from the date of incident. Good Luck.
If an employee is injured at work, the medical care provided is done so, generally, by worker's compensation insurance... even if the injury was a spider bite.
