Proposed Rule Changes and Hearing
page. It sets forth all recent rule changes. On January 29, 2013 there is to be a hearing on the proposed change to Rule 5-11 and 10. Any claimant or attorney should be aware that any rule changes may be significant. Aside from the workers compensation statutes and caselaw the rules are often critical in a case. There may be deadlines set forth in the rules or just standards that are to be utilized in a case. The Medical Treatment Guidelines are in the rules. Disputes, when they arise, may well be resolved with reference to the rules. In any event there will be a hearing on some new proposed changes as I have said so we move forward into 2013.
