Oklahoma Republicans vote to restrict Comp benefits
#1
"The Senate bill approved by the House Economic Development and Financial Services Committee would reduce the number of judges on the Workers' Compensation Court, limit judges to one eight-year term and require Senate confirmation of new judges.

It also redefines the term "objective medical evidence" to state that complaints of pain cannot be considered when determining an injured worker's impairment."

until it's signed by the gov it's not law yet.

It's not just oklahoma.
there is a national movement to undercut many state's work comp programs and give more control to carriers and employers.
they are pushing colorado to the edge;
west virginia went over to private carriers a couple yrs ago.
california benefits have been cut and the market is squeezed.

it's all about rolling back the gains workers have had for many years.

sad.

I always remember my attorney telling me and my Dr.s that pain in the eyes of the law means nothing......it's the inability to do something.....if you say you can't walk two blocks you better not be able to......they don't care if it hurts or not....if you can do then you can do it....I feel bad for anyone with an open WC case if WC is going to be one of the first attacked and not in a good way.

Cap. and I are both in Pa., and the Only thing I can Call Good is the fact that We can Negotiate Our Settlement, if We ever get to the Table, other than that the Whole System Here is Controlled by Lobbyists Buying Our State Representatives!! And with Pa. being a Commonwealth, and Technically not a State, there are No W/C Laws, there is only Rules and Regulations to be Interpreted by the Judges in each Individual Case! To get any Real Justice, as I am trying to do, I Have to Exhaust the Entire w/c System, including Appeals, then I am Permitted to Appeal to the Commonwealth Court for an Overturn of the w/c Judges Decision!! I am now almost 5 1/2 Years in, and it will be Approx. another 2 Years before I Hear from the Commonwealth Court on My First Case which I Won, and My Dr. and I are the Credible Parties!! The Issue I am Fighting is My Wage that Effects My TTD Amount, and We have a Very Good Case and have a Strong Chance of Winning, but We are awaiting an Appeal Decision before I can go to the Commonwealth! And while that is going on, They have started a Second Round Against Me Based on Voc. Rehab. Interviews and a 9 Month Old IME from a Non-Credible Dr. So I actually have 3 Cases going on at the Same Time, The First isn't Completely Closed because of the Appeal, the Appeal Case, and the Second Case Started Against Me!! And the Best Part, when the Voc.Rehab.Person Met My Attorney and I here in My Home, He Looked at My Attorney Twice and Said: "What am I even Doing Here, this Man Clearly Can't Work!!" But the Battle Rages on, and I have to Keep Fighting!!Rolleyes
