Your work comp benefits will continue until the doctor places you at maximum medical improvement (MMI). Until that date, you should continue to get your temporary total disability benefits (wage replacement benefits). After you are placed at MMI, you need to determine whether you are actually at MMI or whether there can be other medical treatment that is reasonable and necessary. You can get a second opinion. Talk with a work comp attorney. Once you are at MMI, then the doctor will assign a...
Do you have an employment contract or are you an at-will employee? If you are an at-will employee you probably don't have a whole lot of options. Being an at-will employee means that your employer can terminate your employment for any reason, whether it is a good reason or a bad reason. In fact, they don't even have to have a reason. As long as the employer doesn't terminate you for an illegal reason, you probable don't have a cause of action. You may want to contact a local employment law...
I agree with the previous answer. Based upon what you have said, it does not sound like you have a harassment case against your employer.

Best of luck to you.
Have you reported it to your insurance company? Depending upon your policy, your insurance company should be able to handle this matter. Otherwise, you will want to bring a small claims action against the company. However, if the repair isn't that much, you may just want fix it yourself because the time and money of bringing a lawsuit won't be worth it. Best of luck to you.
It doesn't even sound like you have a problem at this point. The case hasn't settle and your attorney has stated what amount he is going to take. I think you should raise your concerns with your attorney. Best of luck.
I agree with the previous answer. There are several issues that would have to be addressed should you decide to bring a lawsuit. I believe it would be necessary for you to sit down with an attorney to fully address those issues. The main issues I see have to do with whether your claim would be barred because you have waited so long and whether there is any nexus between the Celebrex and your stroke. I would suggest you contact a personal injury attorney for a consultation. Best of luck to you.
Yes. In opposition to summary judgment, you must identify genuine issues of material fact in dispute and do so using a sworn affidavit made upon personal knowledge and subjecting the affiant to the penalties of perjury. Indiana Rule of Trial Procedure 56 is the applicable rule. When making the affirmation make sure you use the following language: " I swear under the penalties of perjury that the foregoing statements are true and correct." Then sign the affidavit. Good luck.
I would agree with the previous answer. Ultimately, it depends whether you were eligible for FMLA leave because then your employer would have to return you to your past job. If you were merely on on company leave, maybe taking short term disability, then your employer would have no legal obligation to return you to your job. I would suggest contacting a local employment law attorney for a consultation. Best of luck to you.
