If the insurer or the tribunal knows about the child support liens then the liens would probably have to be paid out of any WC settlement. CSE can be difficult to deal with. You may want to consult with a WC lawyer about this. Perhaps the lawyer could do better than $30,000.00. You can use the AVVO Find a Lawyer Tool to find a high rated lawyer in your area.See question

There is always a big difference between a "new injury" and a "flare-up" of an old injury. if you have a "new injury" than the second employer is responsible. On the other hand if your just have a "flare-up" of the old injury than the first company is responsible. Also, it is possible both are responsible.

It would appear your exclusive remedy would be a workers' compensation claim. When the WC laws were enacted all over the USA about 100 years ago there was a trade off. Employers agreed to get WC insurance. In return employers are insulated or protected from claims for "negligence" done by the employers or your co-employees.See question

You injured your right shoulder at work but you do not know when it happened. You are correct that this could be a death blow to a claim for workers' compensation for this injury. Normally, you have to notify your employer of an injury on the job within 30 days of the injury. Most employers actually require immediate notice of the injury. If you are on short term disability that normally pays 60% of one's salary for 26 weeks and it is taxable. Workers Compensation will pay 66 2/3% of one's salary for as long as one is disabled up to a maximum of 500 weeks and it is not taxable. If you were fired due to this injury, you may have a claim against the employer for retaliation. You may want to consult both a wrongful discharge lawyer and a WC lawyer.

I was let go in May over an attendance dispute, and I let my supervisor know many times about my hand pain, and the nurses as well, but they insisted I keep working. Is it too late to sue them to have my hand fixed?
You may have a wrongful discharge claim. However, if it is an attendance issue then it will be difficult to prove it was the carpal tunnel syndrome that was the cause of your discharge and not the attendance issue. It will be difficult to "sue" your employer but perhaps you can bring a WC claim as the others have suggested.See question
I was assaulted by a homeless woman. It is on the Internet. I was on duty working the exit. I was on light duty.
If you were assaulted by a homeless person, then it is futile to file a personal injury action against that person since she has no assets. Most WC lawyers will not take federal WC cases. if your claim is covered by OWCP that sounds like a federal case. You can search for a federal WC lawyer in Hawaii on the interent.See question

Most states do not consider verbal abuse or stress as compensable under WC laws. if you were fired while under any disability, you may have a claim under the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) or the Americans With Disability Act (ADA). You need to contact a Wisconsin employment or wrongful discharge lawyer.See question

The problems you mention are part of the aging process. They are not caused by an injury. They can be "aggravated" by an injury and thus they can be compensable. You did not indicate if you have an accepted claim. If you do have a WC claim that has been accepted, then make an appointment with a lawyer in your area for a free consultation. You can use the AVVO Find a Lawyer Tool to find one in Denver. A settlement is based on what the insurance company might have to pay in the future for future medical expenses and future lost wages and perhaps any permanent injury.See question

Your employer can defeat any personal injury claim by claiming that type of claim is barred because it is a workers' compensation claim.
