What time limits apply in workers' compensation cases in Florida?

There are various time limits that apply to a workers' comp case in Florida. First, you have to report your accident within 30 days to your employer. Next, if you want to seek any type of benefit or claim against the insurance company, you have two years from the date of accident, or one year from the last time you saw a medical doctor under workers' comp, or received any type of benefit from the insurance company. Those are the time limits to file the claim.

However, there are a few exceptions to that rule. I would recommend you discussing those exceptions with a worker's comp attorney, to see if your case applies to any of those exceptions.
