    If you feel fully capable of returning to work on full duty and get this promotion within the window of opportunity convince the doctor that you are capable of returning to full duty he should have no reservations about doing that since you are the patient and it's your position that you can do the job. It is always a refreshing surprise when an injured worker insists on going back to work full duty

    Sometimes it just takes the adjuster a while to put the file together to put the settlement documents together if it's over their authority to get approval from the superior for the settlement a lot of times of things beyond our control even if you had a lawyer they happened and we just roll with it if they want to settle the case they are going to settle it and to an adjuster there is no better file then a closed file.

    You should have an attorney follow up on enforcement of the award I take it by the nature of your question that you don't have an attorney if you have an attorney the award would have been taken care of by now or your attorney would have taken those people back into court and would have received penalties and sanctions for the lack of follow-through on the original order

    Why isn't your current attorney filing the 132a for you that you need 2 attorneys for the same case is ridiculous.
