Can I sue my old employer for an injury on a closed LNI claim? 1 Answers as of May 18, 2017

I hurt my shoulder 3 years ago while working as a CAN. I filed an LNI claim that was closed. I had to switch occupations and employers from it. Well, I now find out that I have tendinitis of the rotator cuff in the same shoulder and a possible tear. If my doctor confirms that this is not a new injury, can I pursue my former employer for this?

No, you had L&I coverage for your medical and were deemed back to baseline when they closed the claim. Under L&I, Workman comp. covered the company's exposure.
