Legal Question

Asked on: 10/03/13, 8:26 am

When is it too late to file workers compensation? my husband fell from a 11ft roof about a year ago and they only paid for half of the bill. He also severely twisted his knee about six months ago which he did lie saying that it happened at home because he was very afraid to get fired, they are very intimidating and fire people constantly. He is such a hard working man and just wanted to keep bringing a paycheck to his family, anyway he had to resin the next day because he couldn't stand the pain. He is in a new job now but he constantly complains from back pain from the fall and his knee is nowhere near healed. Could he hire a lawyer saying that it did happened at work if he has a witness that was there when it happened? Does he have good chances to win the fight for both instances? I will at least like for them to pay for the rest of the bill and to get him checked up again for his back and his knee. Any legal advice? thanks
