Aprox 10 years ago I was classified as partially disabled to the best of my understanding. I have no documentation on what my limitations are. Now have been injured on the job, and Workman's comp "Liberty Insurance" Has mentioned not being covered due to preexisting condition. They are ask for work record for the last ten years in what seems to be defined area of lifting and moving materials within 10-15 pounds?
I have been left to seasonal jobs making at best 10,000.00 a year for the most more like 7 - thousand.. Partially Disables and really well!! not good...
You should consult with a Workers Compensation (WC) attorney - most offer initial consultations at no charge. You could call your local bar association or the Oregon State Bar for referrals in this area. The Oregon state Department of Consumer & Business Affairs will have a record of all the WC claims you have made in this state. You can request a list of such claims from them by completing and submitting the "Request For Workers Compensation Claims-History Service - form 3506"

It looks like there are two issues. One, what was your disability for an old claim, and two, how is it going to affect your new claim. Has Liberty denied your workers' comp claim? If so, you will definitely need an attorney. My office does free consultations at our offices in either Beaverton or Clackamas. You can find the phone number at our website: www.oregonworkinjury.com.
Not only is the initial consultation free, but if you prevail the employer's insurance pays your attorney fees. If you want another name of a good Portland area work comp attorney send me an email at [email protected]
