Extent of Injury question
#2
yes, you can request an exam for your shoulders. the carrier is not required to provide one.
you can obtain at your expense a medical opinion on your shoulders.

are referring to a c-25 agreement?

you cannot settle benefits for a future injury; you would be entitled to file a new claim if you have a new work injury even if it was to the same part of the body.
if a c-25 dispute resolution is approved you can not later dispute the IIBs for this injury.
for workers comp purposes an injury is an event or condition NOT a body part.
therefore if you resolve the IIB dispute by c-25 you cannot receive additional IIBs for any other body part that may become disabled from your current injury/claim.

here is the c-25 form:

you can obtain legal representation at any time or contact the OIEC for specific help
