In 1953, Len Fisher was hurt when the plane he was using to spray fields crashed. He spent eight months in the hospital. But he didn’t file a workers’ comp claim until June 2012 for his hospital bills. The claim was rejected because Fisher didn’t have any coverage at the time of the incident. A spokesperson noted that such old claims aren’t unusual for occupational diseases but are rare for traumatic injuries.
