Contact the Ombudsman to get information on your rights. Also, in Oregon attorney fees are paid for by the system - get one if you feel you are not being treated fairly. I went through the IME process - surprise - that quack reaffirmed what all of the healthcare providers had been saying (too back Liberty Northwest wasted close to $6,000 in the process). I hope Jane Doe never has an injury - the reality of the system will be too much for her! WC is an adversarial system and claimants are frequently unfairly stigmatized. I know - I have RSD. I refused to miss work even when my doctor wanted me to be off. I have chronic pain and permanent partial disability. The most important thing I learned is that I would rather die than ever have to deal with the WC system!
