1. Not Applying Timely


There are clear timeframes for filing injury claims and occupational disease claims - missing information can have an impact on claim eligibility.  Some individuals do not know or understand their protest rights to a decision; you may request reconsideration (protesting) of an Order of Notice if you disagree by submitting a timely written request.

2. Not Knowing Your Options, Accepting No - as the last solution


Not asking for reconsideration (protesting) of an Order of Notice if you disagree. Some individuals do not know or understand their Protests rights to a decision.

3. Missing the Chance to Dispute, Protest, or Appeal


Timelines are important, missing the deadlines to dispute, protest, or appeal a decision you disagree with can affect your claim. You only have 60 days to submit your petition.
