got comp settlement
I would hope you discussed this with the attorney who tried your case or reached this settlement.
Open medical is a good thing for you, in that any future medical bills related to this injury are going to be paid by your employer.See question
I was sanctioned by District Court Judge in criminal case under the Rules of Civil Procedures for filing frivolous documentation after my sentencing. Can I be sanctioned under the Rules of civil procedures when the paperwork was filed in a crimina...
Any judge can sanction any litigant for filing repeated frivolous materials. You obviously have a problem with understanding the rules and following them. It is quite obvious that if you got sanctioned, you better get a lawyer, but you probably already know that.
Sanctions must be paid. If they are not, other drastic measures may occur, including imprisonment for certain acts of contempt, although rare. How the collection of this occurs will depend upon the court and the amounts owed.
As to the effect of sanctions upon the pending case, yes, the case can be dismissed if sanctions are not paid. It does not always occur, but can, depending upon the circumstances.
You seem to feel qualified to litigate your own case. If you think you are, then you should be able to follow the rules of the Court. If you cannot or do not understand how to do that, you should get someone who does to help you; a lawyer.See question

I have another job...but if I lose it and have to go on unemployment could I get it?
You never HAVE to do this. General releases and resignations in workers' compensation cases often come up when you are hurt and the job wants you gone. If it works out that you have another job, want an easier job, or don't feel like you can do your old job, then it works out best for all if you sign the release/resignation.
While they cannot tie a resignation to workers' compensation, you will find some cases where the only way to get decent value on your settlement is to resign. Like I said, do this ONLY IF it works out for you.
As to your question of unemployment, NO, you cannot get this if you get WC and certainly not if you resign.
I STRONGLY SUGGEST getting a lawyer for the WC case, and consulting with an employment lawyer too,. You really should not be doing this yourself.See question

The petition is more than 30 days old. The court date isn't for another month, however. If I amend the petition today, can I then make service or will it still be considered expired?
I am a bit confused about what you are asking. Are you saying you filed a petition with a fixed date and that service was not achieved? If so, i believe you would be best to file an amended petition and then serve that document. Obviously, if there is a court date on the petition that has passed already, service of the document would be pointless.
This sounds like you might want to retain a lawyer to help you.See question

If the contract you sigmed specified that unit or floor, it could be breach of co tract, but I doubt it's that specific. Probably no remedy.See question
