Statute of Limitations Bars Workers Compensation Claim, says Court of Special Appeals

On January 2, 2002, Randolph Griggs was injured while working construction. On February 20, 2004, Mr. Griggs filed a workers compensation claim. Maryland Law requires employees to file such claims within two years of the accident. Because Mr. Griggs's claim was untimely, the Court of Special Appeals affirmed the dismissal of his case. The Court did not buy the argument that Griggs's employer -- by promising to file a claim for him -- actually induced Mr. Griggs to wait more than two years to file with the Workers Compensation Commission.
