Thanks for your question. I have some difficulty understanding precisely what you are asking. So with that having been said I will answer as best I can. It looks as if neither doctor said you are at MMI? If that is correct then you will stay on TIBs until you reach MMI as certified by qualified...View More
At this point in time, I am currently working a modified duty assignment with the organization I work for?... so, I am guessing that with this study I will be closer to MMI, however, I do not feel that I am anywhere near 100% to do my job safely and efficiently. Any help is greatly appreciated!
Thanks for your question. If you simply use your own medical provider for the FCE, you may have to pay for it yourself. You are correct that the IC is preparing to send you off to MMI land. They are in the business of collecting premiums, not paying claims so I would not be trusting everything from...View More
First, thanks for your question. The answer I must say, it depends. (I hate that answer but I will explain). If your case is being disputed, b/c the carrier is claiming surgery is not necessary b/c it's not related to a "compensable injury" it could be a while. Maybe 6 months, I know...View More
In criminal cases, if a defendant is released on personal bond for multiple felony and misdemeanor charges, and if there are different bond conditions for the felonies versus the misdemeanors, what happens if the felonies get dismissed but the misdemeanors don't? Are the bond conditions which... View More
I agree with his honor, I answer also to explain how dastardly the State can be on some case, particularly unpopular cases such as sexual assault of a child. They are not all guilty but I had a case where the person had to bond out twice, once after being indicted.
Yes, and I am sorry for the way your employer is treating you. Just be sure that you comply with the restrictions your doctor gives you. If the employer tries to get you to do more, then you will have the right to leave the job. It could be the employer believes the propaganda about those who d/n...View More
I was injured on the job by a co-worker. Several body parts were said to be not compensable by workers comp. After being denied many times for treatment and a change of adjuster, my treatment was approved. I have had 3 MMI’s. Can you please tell me what steps should I take to discuss Why I was... View More
Its complicated b/c a carrier (IC) may dispute an injury as not being "in course and scope". Once that issue is settled as a compensable, the IC can still dispute that medical treatment was not reasonable or necessary. I know of cases where there was a preauthorization and latter a...View More
The property had flood insurance so the client went through insurance and was told they would be receiving $35,000. we asked our realtor to tell them we want the $35,000 or we wanted out on the property and we received a verbal yes but then they wanted to now only offer $20,000 instead of the...

Thanks for your question. Make sure you carefully review the contract to determine if there is a "force majeure" clause which means "an act of God" clause which protects you in the event of a catastrophic event. If there is such a clause it is an escape for you if there was...View More
social media post supporting “all lives matter” & would like to discuss this to find if I have any options to fight this. I have been called a racist, bullied & harassed by members of the sorority. Thank you in advance.
Thanks for your question and I am sorry for the way you have been treated. You will need to find a lawyer that can help you with a civil rights claim as well as for a violation of your First Amendment rights (freedom of speech).
If your rights were violated by law enforcement it could be a...View More
He had 3 traffic violations and a failure to appear from 2013. In 2017 he got arrested and spent 3 weeks in jail. The magistrate at that time gave him time served for the 4 warrants out of Daisetta, Texas. He has recently went to jail, got his truck and a borrowed trailer impounded over 1 of the 4... View More
I am sorry for your troubles but I thank you for your question.
I'm not sure about the claim the magistrate did not have jurisdiction to give him "time served", or why you would be told that AFTER he already served the time. It is my opinion this is a claim that should be...View More
Ms. Pace provides an excellent answer so I answer only to briefly explain an "examining trial". If you have not yet been indicted you are entitled to request an examining trial (ET). The trial must be held before the indictment, once you are indicted the ET will be cancelled. Also it is...View More
I have had three surgeries on my shoulder. I had three because I had an infection from the first surgery. The final surgery was Anterior Capsular Reconstruction. My doctor gave me a permanent weight limit restriction of 30 pounds. My profession that I have been in for 30 years requires me to lift... View More
As you are probably aware, statutory MMI is a legal fiction that mandates you have gotten as well as you ever will 104 weeks after your TIBs begin to accrue (essentially after you started missing work b/c of your injury). The MMI date is actually the date when...View More
I agree with Mr. Rogers. Before spending your money on a lawyer first research the lawyer appointed and understand nothing will happen before your fist date, typically an arraignment for a felony. Your 3rd offense could be a felony but get the advise of a lawyer about that first. Good luck,
Thanks for your question. I agree with Ms. Pace. This can be a complicated area of the law because of the hearsay rule and exceptions for non-availability of the witness. You have the right to confront those accusing you so I see that as a problem for the DA. Best of luck to you.

I am trying to get a property in my name that was verbally given to me. The lady had passed away.

Well, I must ask, is someone contesting your ownership? If not and the other parties are willing to part with their interest I would suggest preparing and filing "an affidavit of heirship". IT MAY DEPEND ON THE VALUE OF THE PROPERTY.
I had a seizure in my vehicle as I am an epileptic. The police arrested me for DWI. I had no alcohol in my system, but now they say my THC levels were too high, but no marijuana or paraphernalia was in the car.
I am sorry for your troubles. If the State cannot prove the "amount" or a quantitative level of the THC that would cause "loss of use of your normal mental or physical faculties" it will not be able to prove your case. In that situation my opinion would be to take the case to trial. Good luck.
My employer told those who qualified would receive pay from March 19th- April 2nd. We were just told today that we would not be receiving said pay the day before we would get paid. Just wondering if they actually can do that.
I would look at the promise to pay as a contract type of agreement. To have a legal contract there must be an offer and acceptance and "consideration". "Consideration" means that each party agrees to provide something of value to the other. This can be an affirmative offering...View More
So I originally got injured on 05/2019, 4 months later I was injured again. My employer was aware of what my restrictions were but still put me to work. Causing the second injury. So my second case is closed as of last week, but my injury I feel is not quite where I feel it should be? Could I sue... View More
