PLEASE RESPOND, THANKYOU <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
I am surprised that your attorney failed to file "third party" actions against the two other potential tortfeasors. This could have been done at the same time your Worker's Compensation Claim was filed. Well, the sum and substance of this error was lost time, up to this point.
However, you left out the most important part from your post; and that is, what State did this incident occur? You see, each State has its own laws, and Statutes of Limitations periods. So, for the sake of an answer, I'll assume your State has a ONE YEAR limitations period on personal injuries.
If the injury occurred in July, you only have a few more months to file a formal complaint in a court of competent jurisdiction.
P.S. In the world of the Internet, capitol letters mean you are yelling at someone, or emphasizing something, which might, at most, be one or two words. Could you please take your "cap lock" off?
