I had an WC in Ca in 86 had 421/4% disable. Have not since then. I started back to in96 as Home Care Provider then quite because of
Personal reasons. Then I was hired thru Vocational Rehab. assistance in getting employment at Seven Feathers Casino. At time interview I told the manger
about my disabilities. The manager said they will get me an easier position until then they will work with me to help me work as Pull Tab salesclerk, in bingo dept.
Which they did a little assistance by letting me back for 10 minutes every hour of my work schedule. I worked an average of 30 hours per week. Wanted to succeed in getting back to work
and thought this employer would work with me. When I started to work after the third day the postion real aggravated my old injuires, from CA. I was going to Chiro on a regular basis.
I have told my chiro what has been going on and she had written to them to info them that the position was aggravating my old injuries. VOl Rehab. also has visited with and wrote to them about my complains.
On 4/97, I could not walk and even couldn't get out of bed. I had my sister take me to emergency, then next day went to Chiro. She told me to file for WC because she find my condition has worsen.
I have been to court and now appealing the case. What I want to know is that if my past CA WC was aggravated by this job, is it cover in OR WC or I have to go to CA WC?
The MCN could not indicated that this job has aggravated my old injury. But my Chiro has and the court is not recognizing her report. I don't have attorney because the one did have says I did not have a case, so now I am doing it
myself. I have been with the same Chiro since 93 and I feel her report should be regonized. I had Otho Surg. Check me also and he I am now 100% disable.
Is pre-exsiting condition or injury that has been worsen by new job is an WC Case??
