I have an open L&I claim from an employer I no longer work for. My doctor recently restricted me from working for 6 weeks at my new workplace and FMLA did not approve it therefore my manager told me my position is no longer available. Are they in ...
You are confused. The FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act) CANNOT approve or disapprove a claim. Either you qualify for protection under the Act or you do not. If you are not full time, have worked for your present employer for less than a year, or your present employer has too few employees, you would NOT qualify for protection under the FMLA. Am FMLA leave can hold your job for up to 180 days. FMLA leaves have NOTHING to do with L&I claims. Subsequent employers are not liable for injuries sustained with a prior employer. The PRIOR employer may still be liable. Consult an L&I attorney near you.See question

On your facts, there was a clerical error on the summons. It doesn't matter because the prosecutor has SOLE discretion as to whether you are to be served by Summons or by Warrant.
The bond has NOTHING to do with the bench warrant. It is based on the underlying offense. You don't have to worry about keeping track of your court dates if you refrain from breaking the law, in the first place.
Hire a criminal defense attorney to represent you on the underlying matter.See question
So if a bench warrant leads to false arrest without due process, whether damages can be sought depends on outcome of prosecution? How can a state judge be a neutral tried of fact knowing his decision may subject state to consequences and only way ...
You are confused. There is no such thing as a trial on a bench warrant. The sole purpose of a bench warrant is to bring you before the court. It's NOT an offense so there CANNOT be any trial.See question

I agree with my colleague that the dealership is liable. If you were injured, please consult a local personal injury. If there are no injuries, you do NOT need an attorney. Simply leave the matter to your insurance.See question
The company didn't give her a referral to the company doctor they are wanting her to go back to work and the injury sustained was a full-thickness tear of the supraspinatus tendon anteriorly.
She probably needs to have the tendon repaired, surgically. The sooner, the better. An attorney can make that happen for her.

With all due respect, it is your own fault that you have been two years without benefits. Any experienced attorney could have reinstated your benefits within 6 months or less, PROVIDED:
1.) That the medical records and your doctor provide causation AND
2.) That you are able to identify a reason for your fall
If you cannot explain the fall, it is considered "idiopathic" meaning nobody knows why you fell. These falls are NOT compensable under Workers' Compensation. You MUST be able to allege some defect like water, grease, loose stair tread protector, etc.See question

You really need to ask a question. If you are asking whether you can get money because you believe that the omissions were intentional, the answer is NO. As Mr. Hoffman and others have indicated, you are in, WAY over your head. Every day you are unrepresented is costing you.See question
