Re-Injury while working temp
So this is a little complicated. I injured my knee 3 years ago that never fully healed but was better and good enough to work again. Recently I was working for a temp agency and twisted my knee and the pain was increasing daily. I contacted the temp agency but they didn't return my calls. My question is will this injury be considered to be caused before or re-injury? Also what can I do since they won't return my calls? Thanks
Was this a w/c injury in the beginning? If so unless you settled out your claim I believe there is a five year statute to re open. If it was non work related and you went to your own dr it won't be covered most likely due to your own previous injury.
it will be considered an aggravation.
aggravations are considered new injuries.
have your doctor file a report of injury with the carrier.
contact the insurance carrier directly to report your injury.
send a report of your injury in writing to your employer.
before telephones workers were able to report innjuries just fine.
or you can email your employer.
