If you live in Oregon call the Ombudsman for Injured Workers at 1-800-927-1271. It's not a good idea to trust what adjusters say. Always confirm their statements with the above people. Keep detailed notes of any contact you have.
The carrier may fight your retraining since the schooling costs (16 months max by law) and having to pay replacement wages during that time cuts into their profit margin. I suggest you not choose their voc person or any other that works for an insurance company. These person will usually drag things out for several months while their co-workers offer you a pittance amount to give up your right to training.
