Don't be to proud of the fact that your name will be on their website. Potential Employers also visit these websites too.
The DCBS used to sell the names of Injured workers to employers, By law they are not supposed to do this, but they still do.

From your posting the carrier appealed your win, It depends on how complex you claim is and what you should receive. Expect months to pass before you are contaced about their appeal.
Nobody really wins in a workers comp claim except for the carriers.
Lifetime medical is limited to what they will pay for by law.
Re-training is a joke, If you spent a better part of your working life in one occupation it will be even harder for you to find work after training
Because you have no experience in what you were trained for
The carrier won't assist you in finding work.
I know this is depressing to hear.
