    You can't reopen the case, you're way past the 30 month statute of limitations.

    WORKERS' COMPENSATION
    Injured workers have the right to reopen their case within 30 months after an award is made if the disability increases, but
    cases that are resolved by a lump-sum settlement contract approved by the Commission cannot be reopened. Only
    settlements approved by the Commission are binding.
