Settlement on Reinury
Hi I had an injury at work back in 1999. I was given a settlement back in 2003. Due to a supervisors big ego I got re-injured when he put me on a job that I was not suppose to do. I am at home on w/c and most likely will never be able to return to that kind of work. Do they have to give me a settlement again because it was there fault that I got re-injured in the first place.
Re: Settlement on Reinury
each injury is entitled to separate benefits.
Impairment benefits will only be paid for any additional impairment for the new injury.
workers comp is "no fault"; you don't have to make it the employers fault or negligence in order to file a claim.
