We are constantly trying to make certain our clients and injured workers’ for that matter, know what to know. It certainly doesn’t hurt to know the acronyms and abbreviations used in a workers’ compensation case. The more you know the more you are able to make the right decisions and discuss your issues with your lawyer.
