I also read the Bio, and also talked to Dallas. I do think all of us can benefit from one willing to be honest, and cares about the Injured Workers. Dallas has seen both the good and bad in the system, and also knows alot about how the system works from the Insurance side. I hope we all give Dallas a chance to help us out.
Remember we all have the right to be Objective, the right to agree, the right to disagree, and the right to agree to disagree. Dallas does show compasion for the injured. Dallas is also an person that suffers with Spinal Problems.
We, welcome aboard Dallas, we will be looking forward to hearing your comments and Reply's here at this New Board.

Thank you I hope I can help with my experiance- I know it will take time for some to warm up with me but believe me I have been on all sides of this and I want to help if I can- bashing is not always a good thing but understanding is a different story. IC and employersÃ‚Â Ã‚Â not to mention doctors and money hungry attorneys---I have seen and delt with it all and I failed to mention in my bio that I worked for a law firm too------I do not claim to know everything but if I can assist it will not matter what side of the fence anyone is on. But please everyone needs to remember I have been on all sides so do not bash me for what I respond to.

Dallas Thanks for being around it might help us see both sides also..
I do have some question for you
1)How much is the employer involved with a claim ??
2)Do they have any say on treatment or settlements or anything?
Thanks I'm curious cause i hear that they dont know anything ...
3)If self insured do they get copies or what doctors reports?
Thanks for your care to help each of us!!!

Tweety- Every state has thier issue but I have to tell you thatÃ‚Â Ã‚Â in all the reforms more and more employers are getting involved-because the drs. and atty. fees have driven up the cost of claims and the premiums of employers.
as I have said in other postÃ‚Â Ã‚Â as reforms happen you all need to check to seeÃ‚Â Ã‚Â the dates-meaning most rules and regs do not affect injuries that pre date the rule...... As you may know by now I have been on all sides of this fence-- employers now are more involved because of several reasons
first in the earlier years WC was because of injuries that happened on the job and related to the jobs- back in the mining days
wellÃ‚Â Ã‚Â courts had allowed BS things to happen making bad law for many------and costing you and the employers a lot of money- and IC haveÃ‚Â Ã‚Â gone from training and keeping good adjusters- thus you all are getting inexperianced adjusters- causing excrement to happen and cost to go up----can I say excrement?
OK sorry TMI- throwing out my life and soap box
yes in most cases they do- all the reforms are triggered on employers dealing with and caring about the IW (injured worker) however if you are with an IC and not self insured then the carrier has more power to your issues. A real carrier would work with the employer together with you.
If an employer does not know what is going on then there are 2 problems- the IC is not keeping in touch with them and/or the employer is not keeping in touch with them and or does not care....... tough one if you are not informed of either. But I have to tell you this.... In my 32 yrs of this I always kept the employer informed and we have always tried to find a way to help the injured worker a way toÃ‚Â Ã‚Â move on and continue a way of life.
Like I have said before - Drs. have really srewed many up because they line thier pockets- as well as attorneys do- that is sad and it sucks for the injured workes-- I wish I could write a book--------- but
if this is too tmi pm me we can go one on one and if I can assist youI will do my best
thanks admin for censoring my S
