    Once more, this is an old thread.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

        DO NOT POST TO DEAD THREADS.

        I can't make it any more clear than that.

          My claim was denied and so I thought that this was a lost case. No need to go on.

          My finger is doing better, but my hand hasn't been the same since. I am not able to write as well as I use to because I cannot close my hand around the pen. The effort of trying to do just that causes the pressure on the other finger next to the one that I had surgery.

          I thought about consulting an attorney, but the thought came and went.

            Mamie, you would be wise to do as Bob has suggested. He is after all an attorney, board certified WC specialist in NC. He knows what he is talking about. I would think that your on going problems with your hand would be more than enough incentive to pursue the WC claim. You might expect a fight but in the end it just may be worth it. What will you do if you end up having to change jobs because of this injury. WC helps with retraining besides paying for current treatment and payment for permanent partial disability. You really NEED to consider following Bob's advise and finding a good WC attorney to help you with this before the SOL has run.

            Good Luck to you.

              Hi, again.

              I hear you. I guess you could say that I stood by the ultimate decision that was made. Not to say that I have often questioned their decision.
              Especially when I hurt at work and sometimes all troughout the day.

              Will it be appropiate to, quote, mention this forum if I decide to consult an attorney?

                  Nope. The attorney doesn't know this forum, the expertise of the responders here, etc., from Adam.
                  I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

                    Mamie what you discuss or don't discuss with your attorney is privileged information between you and the attorney. You are free to discuss what ever you think will help your case with your attorney. There is nothing in the rules for this forum that forbids you taking information you receive here and using it as a basis for a discussion with an attorney. In fact some posters on this board have suggested that the OP print the pages and take with them to the employer or attorney to point out various facts presented here. I don't know that I would recommend that you print the pages from this electronic bulletin board but you are certainly free to use the content to discuss your case with your attorney.

                      I am sorry!

                      THAT was only a question. Nothing but a question. I apologize if it stirred up something. It was not my intent to do that.

                      I admire everyone professionalism in the forum and I will keep in mind
                      (myself) and will pursue when the time comes.

                      Thanks!

                        I don't think it would hurt anything to take forum pages in with you when you talk to your lawyer. If nothing else, it may broaden the topics of discussion you have with the lawyer and may cause the two of you to visit more issues than you would have visited without it. But I don't think a competent work comp lawyer is apt to learn anything new from the forum. It is possible but not likely.
