If you have an old work injury that is acting up and your doctor says you need more treatment, maybe even surgery, what can you do? The Workers’ Compensation System in Arizona may have an answer. Under certain conditions you can reopen you claim for more care and compensation benefits.
How do you reopen your claim? You must show that there is some condition related to your old injury that is new, previously undiscovered or something additional that requires active medical care. Go back to your doctor for an examination to see what he or she recommends. There is no time limit on filing a Petition to Reopen with the Industrial Commission of Arizona.
Our firm can assist you in getting your claim successfully reopened for more medical care and compensation benefits.
