Workers comp sent me to a doctor of their choose to get a independent medical evaluation. The doctors opinion was that my injuries are not work related, now workers comp sent me papers saying that my case was denied and terminated because of the doctors opinion.
I'm sorry you are having trouble with your claim. This is a very common way for the workers compensation insurance company to stop paying for your injury. You should consult with an attorney to see if you can dispute the denial of your claim. You may need to have your treating doctor write an...View More

I accepted a new job offer and it requires me to put in my 2-weeks notice to my current employer on the same day I get my 2019 performance bonus paid out. Does my current employer have any legal right to clawback my bonus if it has already cleared in my account?

They can't legally preclude you from filing a claim, and thus if your claim has any potential of becoming serious, you should be very careful in accepting their "offer." If they make this offer, they are likely foregoing their immunity from liability if you were to decide to sue them...View More
You are only compensated for what did happen, not what could have happened. If you had a brain injury that was made worse by their failure to diagnose and treat, yes; if the damage had been done before they examined you and the delay made no difference no.
