    Answered . I would suggest consulting with a lawyer in the state where the accident took place. The fact that they paid some benefits indicates that the case was open at some time, and in some jurisdictions like Arizona you have the right to file a re-opening of your case, under certain circumstances. Meeting with an attorney in the state where it happended will allow you to become aware of what rights, if any, you may have. Best of luck, and sorry to hear about your tragic circumstances.

    Answered . We need to know the state where you were injured and the date you were injured to give you more than generalities. In addition to the pay you received, you were entitled to compensation for the permanent injury to your body. Hopefully the statute of limitations has not run. Why would you wait 7 years to assert a claim?
