Bad Boy Bad Boy Wrote:The Final Admission of Liability is used by the insurance company to close your workers’ compensation case. It is generally filed after your treating physician has placed you at maximum medical improvement (MMI) and issued a report stating whether you have any permanent impairment from your injury.
Key facts about your Final Admission of Liability:
This is one of the most important documents that you will get in your case.
You have only 30 days from the date of the admission to respond to it.
The 30-day deadline is very strict.
If you miss the deadline you can destroy your case.
Protecting your rights at this stage of your claim is very important.
You must file an Objection to Final Admission within 30 days from the date the admission was mailed to you. You must also either request a hearing or ask for a Division Independent Medical Examination (DIME).
Deciding whether to request a hearing or DIME is best left to an experienced attorney. Also, the insurance company is required by law to include two forms with the Final Admission: (1) the Objection to Final Admission and (2) the Notice and Proposal to Select a Division IME. But they are not required to send you a copy of the Application for Hearing form. As a result, you may not even have all of the documents you need to protect your right to seek additional benefits for your injuries!

1st, regarding your mixup in dates for the SGB. If you already have it scheduled, why do you have to go thru approval again? I think I missed something.
SGB's can work very well on RSD/CRPS if done early enough, say within the first 12 months.
Hope they work for you.
