Too late to reopen??
#2
The statute of limitations on a claim is determined by the date of injury, disability or death, and the claim type.

Medical-only claims with dates of injury prior to Oct. 20, 1993, are statutorily closed six years from the date of injury.
Medical-only claims with dates of injury on or after Oct. 20, 1993, are statutorily closed six years from the date of last payment of medical benefits.
Lost-time claims are statutorily closed 10 years from date of last payment of medical benefits or compensation or from the date of death.


because of the intervening time and events you will likely need to litigate your claim to receive any further benefits.
