Can workers' compensation be retroactive?

Yes, once your work injury is accepted and/or memorialized as entitling you to workers’ compensation benefits, you will receive benefits retroactive to your first date of disability, minus any amounts you may have received in TDI or other wages.  

Keep in mind, however, that there is a statute of limitaitons in Rhode Island that provides you must file your case no later than two (2) years from the date of injury. If your date of injury and first date of lost time are different, consult with a lawyer regarding any questions you have regarding the statute of limitations.

Angelo Simone and Shelagh McCahey’s dream was a law firm truly built upon a core value of excellence, without compromise. This law firm is the result of that dream. It is also the result of many long conversations about what is truly best for the client, what actually drives truly excellent results, and why many lawyers—even those who have done quite well for themselves—simply don’t hit the target.
