    That injury is 23 years ago...what treatment have you been accessing since the orginial injury...?

    That your atty dies has no bearing on your entitlement to benefits.
    That the IC was sold out, and absorbed by another IC has no bearing on your entitlement to benefits.

    There ARE records of your claim on the initial DOI and the details surrounding the claim and treatment you have received since.

    If you have been receiving treatment, who has been paying the bills..
    As you have a medical/pension award, who has been providing those benefits/checks...?


    What is it you are seeking assistance with...?
    Have you applied/received SSA/SSDI benefits...?

    What you have is obvious complicated...it appears you are in need of much more help here than what you can expect from a message board..

    What contacts have you already been successful in making...?

    ... went to court . won full medical dental & benefits for life....
    The "medical for life" is actually access to medical care... only the accepted body parts are covered, the judge cannot add to that.

    As such, the carrier has the right to control the medical cost in your claim, and they do that my UR/Utilization Review process of any treatment your Dr recommeds. If the UR finds there is no medical necessity, on a industrial basis, they will deny. When that happens, you go to IME, and/or court to enforce the future medical award.
    WORKERS COMP SOLD OUT TO ANOTHER COMPANY SAYS ALL RECORDS BURNED-
    Medical records are easily recovered, through your Dr's and/or the comp court. Besides what you can provide from your file.
    It wasnt' "work comp" that sold...it was the insurance carrier handling your claim... doesn't matter, you are still covered until you cash out.
