A: I can't answer your question about your employment situation. The 2016 knee injury generally can be "unscheduled" IF you have a prior Arizona work injury that also was scheduled OR if you had a previous unscheduled injury that was determined to cause a reduction of your earning capacity. These cases are extremely fact dependent and I am available to review your case with you in person if you would like to meet with me in my office. There is no charge for the initial consultation, I can be reached at 602-687-9211. Thank you
