    I would recommend consulting with a workers compensation attorney. You may very well have simply settled the claim with the other driver. Sometimes workers compensation adjusters will say a claim is "closed" just because there has not been any activity in the claim for a long time - no doctors visits, no income benefits, etc. It does not necessarily mean your case has settled. This could certainly be the case here, since you did not believe you had settled your case. A workers compensation...

    You are entitled to medical and income benefits. It is unclear from your question if the employer's insurer is paying your doctor's bills, but it should be. Once you have been out of work for 7 days, you are entitled to income benefits in the form of a weekly check. You are also entitled to mileage reimbursement for your travel to and from any medical appointments related to your claim, such as doctor's visits and trips to the pharmacy. It is good you reported your injury to you manager,...

    You may have a claim under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) if your doctor placed you under restrictions and you previously notified your employer of those restrictions. You should consult with an attorney who specializes in ADA claims. You may also have a workers compensation claim for the latest attack. There is a one year Statute of Limitations in an unaccepted workers compensation case, so I would recommend that you seek legal counsel as soon as possible, specifically from an...

    While you are correct, you cannot recover for pain and suffering in a workers compensation claim, there are many benefits you are entitled to in the workers compensation system which you may not be aware of/receiving, and these benefits can equate to a significant sum. A workers compensation attorney can help you pursue and obtain all the benefits to which you are entitled. A workers compensation attorney can also relieve you of the responsibility of having to deal directly with the insurance...

    The Temp Service is your employer, and your workers comp claim (for the disks) would be against them. You would not have a workers compensation claim against the logistics distribution center. It is common for employers to give employees "problems" after they suffer an injury and are on work restrictions. I encourage you to seek representation from an attorney who specializes in workers compensation. You may have a third party claim against the distribution center. I would encourage you to...

    I agree with the other attorneys who have responded, in that more information is needed. I would also recommend seeking advice from a workers compensation attorney. Depending upon the specific circumstances of your case, you may be entitled to change to a new doctor, and/or get an opinion regarding your medical condition from an independent doctor. If you have been released to work but are still on restrictions, and your employer cannot accommodate those restrictions, you may be entitled to...

    You can certainly take your son to the mediation. Be aware, however, that mediations can be long and boring and he may be confused and possibly distressed by the discussions taking place. If you must take him, I would recommend taking snacks for him as well as any favorite electronic games/magazine/books. You might also want to bring another adult/family member who could take him out for a walk should he become restless. Carol Allen Attorney At Law, LLC 678-615-7335
