Legal Answers
Q. Do I have a "pain and suffering" case?
A: You may have established the basic facts for a claim for negligence (failure to properly warn) against the land owner and/or builder of the premises. Lawyers refer to this as a third party claim since you also have a claim for workers' compensation.
Q. If I was let go from my job because of my injury, can I steal get my impairment, income benefits in a lump sum?
A: Yes. That's true. Contact OIEC 1-866-393-6432 or an attorney of your choice to verify. You must have worked for 3 months earning 80% of pay.
Q. Workers comp is saying they need to verify my impairment rating even though their certified, Doctor conducted rating.
A: The Carrier does not have to accept the rating provided by the state selected Designated Doctor. They can hire a private doctor (RME) and require you to go to this doctor. Then they can challenge the rating before and Administrative Law Judge (ADJ) in a Contested Case Hearing (Administrative Court).
