Four Tips: When You Need to File a Workers Compensation Claim If you are being treated fairly by the insurance company, you don't need to file a claim with the Workers Compensation Board. How do you know if you are being treated fairly? Tip #1: Are you getting your TTD checks on time? The first check must be postmarked 21 days from the date you turned in the doctor's work release. All other checks be postmarked every 14 days after that. You should not have to pick up the check at the insurance company. They need to mail it to you. If the checks are postmarked late, you are entitled to 25% penalties. Tip #2: Are you being paid the right amount of money for your lost wages? The general rule is the insurance company will look to your prior two years of wages, for all jobs you had, to calculate your compensation rate. You can visit the Alaska Workers Compensation Board and use the Benefit Calculator to see if the computations are correct. But, even if the rate is correct mathematically, it might not be fair to you and there are different reasons why that might not be fair. Tip #3: Are you getting the medical treatment you need or is the insurance company dragging its feet approving the recommended treatment? If the insurance company is dragging its feet, that's a sign it plans to send you to their doctor, the so-called "independent medical evaluation" in hopes that doctor will justify denying your treatment. If the insurance company is dragging its feet, it's time for you to collect all of your medical records relating to your injury and find an attorney. Tip #4: If you aren't sure you're being treated fairly, call an experienced workers compensation attorney.

And that's what happens when they turn the plane around because of a drunk on board.

If you go to a prehearing, chances are the prehearing officer will explain Second Independent Medical Evaluations (SIME). Chances are he explained a lot of things and it all sounded like a foreign language. Because it is. Not to fret. This is what SIMEs are about: A Second Independent Medical Evaluation is an evaluation by the Board’s doctor. Here is the list of doctors who serve on the Board: [ 631 more words ] http://www.keenanpowell.com/blog/2017/08/28/negotiating-the-maze-iii-second-independent-medical-evaluations-sime/

A precedent was set last week when the Alaska Workers Compensation Commission ruled that a snowplow driver who was on call was covered by the Workers Compensation Act. Spain & Sons v Stevens, AWCAC Decision No 238 (4/14/17). In that case, the driver, James Stevens was "on call" when he received a telephone call from his boss to go out and sand icy roads on a particularly nasty winter night.

You build your case on your medical records. Your medical records, before and after your date of injury, will prove that you did not have an injury before and you were injured afterwards. They will show that you did not need treatment before but needed treatment afterwards. They will show that you were not disabled before but you were disabled afterwards.

About once a day, I get a call from the Lower 48 from someone who wants to refer Alaska cases to me or find Alaska experts for me. Just got one from a firm that claimed it would find Alaska interpreters for me. Why, I ask, would I pay you to find me someone who is practically next door? I don't do business with Cheechakos who are skimming money off Alaskans.

The Alaska Workers Compensation Board issued a Final Decision and Order in the case of Gillion v The Northwest Co/Berkshire Hathaway Homestate Insurance Co. on July 31, 2017, Gillion v Berkshire Hathaway. Holmes, Weddle & Barcott defended the insurance company. In this case, the Employee had been treated with epidural injections for a herniated L5-S1 and annual tear. When the treating physicians referred the Employee for a consultation with a surgeon, the insurance company obtained an "independent medical evaluation" by Dr. [ 325 more words ] http://www.keenanpowell.com/blog/2017/08/01/employee-wins-again-5/
