Copy and Paste to the address bar, the last paragraph is of particular interest.
You might need Adobe Reader, the state has it for free.
They are talking about the right of the worker to permanent disability.
And does the right of the insurance company to make money outweight the right of the injured worker to be compensated for a lack of earning capacity.
Is the burden of proof too great for the injured worker?

IT IS WHEN YOU START READING YOUR DOCTOR REPORTS AND WONDER WHERE THE PAIN AND SUFFERING WENT, WHERE DID THEY WRITE DOWN WHAT YOU WAS SAYING WHAT HURT? AND THEN WHAT THEY DO WITH THE INFORMATION IS SOMETHING ELSE. EVEN WHEN TAKING SOMEONE WITH ME THE INFORMATION WASNT ANYTHING IN WHICH THE DOCTOR AND I TALKED ABOUT. I COOKED THANKSGIVING DINNER AND SAT AND WATCHED THE GRANDS FOR FOUR HOURS WHILE DAUGHTER VISITED. NEXT DAY I GO TO THE HOSPITAL, OVER DID IT IN TOO MUCH PAIN, AND THEY JUST LET ME LAY THERE. GAVE ME A SHOT OF WHO KNOWS WHAT? AND STILL AFTER ABOUT TWO HOURS WITH SON, GRABBED CLOTHS AND WALKED OUT. WENT HOME AND TOOK A BATH AND WAS IN BED FOR TWO DAYS RESTING MY INJURIED MUSCLES, NEEDLESS TO SAY THAT AREA HAS BEEN OVER LOOKED FOR ALMOST TWO YEARS.MY GOODNESS AT LEAST THE LORD IS ON OUR SIDE. I OFTEN THINK, IF A DOCTOR MAKES ONE SUFFER TO SAVE AND LEARN ABOUT 100 DONT YOU THINK THAT IS A FLAT SIN, I DON'T THINK THE LORD GAVE THEM THAT SORT OF POWER.
ANYWAY, AS I WAS SAYING TOO TOO GREAT OF POWER THIS ALL HAS. I KNOW THAT MOST PEOPLE ARE GOING TO THEIR REGULAR INSURANCE COMPANIES BECAUSE THEY DONT WANT TO LIVE THROUGH THE WORKMENS COMP WAY, I STILL TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHY DONT THE STATE OF OREGON WHO ENDS UP FOOTING THE BILL, OR EVEN THE OTHER INSURANCE GROUP DOESNT GET INVOLVED. STRANGE TO ME. OH I KNOW AT LEAST I THINK SO, AS LONG AS THE INJURIED LOOSE'S ITS NO BIG DEAL THAT THE PEOPLE IN OREGONS TAX MONEY PAYS FOR OUR INJURIED WORKERS SO I BELEIVE THAT IS A WASH.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL SHARMA.
