Q. I have suffered a work related injury last 2/9/18 and went through all the the treatments and ended up having surgery.
A: If Your permanent disability is only worth 2% then the amount of money they’re offering you is correct. But if your doctor underestimated your disability your claim would be worth a lot more money you should have an attorney Review your case and the medical report the insurance company is basing 2% on.
Q. I have a work related injury from 2016 I had surgery and also suffer from arthritis this has not only taken a toll on
A: This is a qualified NO... if it is found to be a compensable consequence of the work injury, and your doctors prescribe psychological treatment and or medications work comp will pay for it generally but they will not allocate further disability to the psyche condition. this has been the law since 2013.
Q. I want to know if the insurance co in a ca workers comp case can deduct from award child support that I had paid from
A: On the surface it makes no sense if the case was closed ... so.. follow up with the child support agency and get a paid in full statement that there is no basis for any further payments to be made to them... then take that to the court with the settlement documents (if you have a lawyer have your lawyer do it for you and send a copy to the adjuster).
