NEW BLOG POST: Physician's Progress Report- Get One Every Doctor Visit: Following every visit to your authorized treating doctor, be sure to ask the doctor or his assistant for a copy of the doctor’s physician progress report. There is a DIR-approved form that most doctors use, although some have modified the form to include their office address, phone number, and have slightly different boxes for slightly different information. The physician progress report is sent by the doctor’s office to your adjuster following each visit and tells the adjuster what further treatment is planned, what the work restrictions are for the next month, or whether the doctor has taken you off work completely.

Legislative Update on Bills Affecting Injured Workers - Steve Miller ran two articles today in the Nevada Journal on the proposed legislation that would allow injured workers greater rights to choose their treating physicians. Let’s hope that Nevada’s lawmakers read them and pay particular attention to how ineffective DIR is with regard to looking out for the interests of injured workers as we try to weather the storm during this legislative session. ‪#‎workerscomplawnevada‬ Read more at:  http://www.nevadaworkerscompensationlaw.com/2015/03/articles/benefits/permanent-partial-disability-awards/legislative-update-on-bills-affecting-injured-workers/

ACTION ITEM - YOUR HELP IS NEEDED:  The Nevada legislature meets only every other year, and this year doesn’t look good for the changes that could gut benefits for Nevada’s injured workers.  The amendment so many of us committed work comp attorneys hoped would get out of the senate committee on commerce and labor and to the legislature for a vote on allowing workers to choose their own doctors might be dead already.   Read more and then please help by taking action:  http://www.nevadaworkerscompensationlaw.com/2015/03/articles/uncategorized/help-prevent-terrible-changes-to-work-comp/

The 78th session of the Nevada legislature closed last night with a close call for Nevada’s most severely injured workers. The self-insured employers’ lobbyist tried a last minute attack on how permanent partial disability awards are calculated by pushing for adoption of the 6th edition of the AMA Guides to Evaluation of Permanent Impairment.
