Legal Answers
167 Questions Answered
Q. ERISA502(A) My employer's Workmen's compensation plan is based on this part of the law, but they are not compliant.
A: My law office doesn't handle ERISA claims. If your claim does not involve negligence on behalf of the employer or other third party, it is almost impossible to obtain legal representation. For this reason, the Carrier's offer little to no support. I like to refer to it as fake workers' compensation. My advise is to seek care under your private policy.
Q. The report from the IR reviewDr was delivered the same day as my hearing. Didn’t get to read it. How is this legal?
A: If the report was not timely exchanged before the hearing, you could have objected to the admission of this exhibit. It's not dirty pool in my opinion. The lawyer probably just got the report. His duty to his client is to try to get it into the trial. It's your job to object to the admission of this exhibit because it was not timely exchanged.
Q. I recently got hurt at work I'm on light duty at the moment. Is my position protected?
A: If your claim is in Texas, Walmart no longer carries workers' compensation through the Texas Department of Insurance, Division of Workers' compensation. They are nonsubscribers to workers' comp. Walmart has it's own private insurance. I believe your employer can permanently change your job in most cases. I would check with a labor and employment law attorney. Your employer can't change your position as a punishment for filing a job injury, but this is difficult to prove the motive.
