There are statutes of limitations in Federal Workers’ Compensation.  The basic rule is that the claim must be filed within three years of the date of the traumatic incident or within three years of the date that the claimant knew, or should have known, that the occupational disease was related to the employment.   There are exceptions that would extend the period to five years, if written report on authorized forms was made to the employer.
