1979 Injury Statute of Limitations Insurer Payments
Summary from the Troubh Heisler Attorneys
The 39 MRS §95 statute of limitations does not equate payments a self-insured employer makes under its health insurance policy for an employee’s work injury to “payments made under the WC Act.” Thus, those health insurance payments are “entirely independent” of the employer’s obligations under the WC Act and do not extend the WC statute of limitations.
