    My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: Washington but I now live in AZ. Need a MD in Phoenix/Glendale area to reopen case.

    Good luck with that one - it won't happen.
    Most doctors don't want anything to do with out of state claims when they're accepted - they sure won't get involved in a contested case
    There's nothing in it for them except for headaches - unless you're willing to pay up front and pray you prevail, it'll never happen.

    You should make travel plans to get back to Washington to see a doctor. At your own expense, of course.
    The North Carolina Court of Appeals has held that "In contested Workers' Compensation cases today, access to competent legal counsel is a virtual necessity." Church v. Baxter Travenol Labs, Inc., and American Motorists Insurance Company, 104 N.C. App. 411, 416 (1991).
