    Default 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.

    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.
