It's truly important. Well, to me and to others who have become injured workers.
Here is an article posted on fightweb.org entitled, My Story... My Dealings with the Judicial Review Process: http://www.fightwcb.org/my-story---judicial-review.html.
Please click on the link and read the entire article, for I cannot share with you everything stated in the article. However, I will share a small amount of what was stated (I copied/pasted):
This is my story of my dealings with
the Judicial Review Process and the courts.
It is extremely important for injured workers to understand what possible options they may have after a final tribunal decision.
As well as or alternatively what legal options they may have if they are experiencing severe difficulties from the administrative board and/or tribunals.
Learning what Judicial Review is, the different parts of it, as well as how to use it effectively, may allow an injured worker's final decisions of the Tribunal to be changed or sent back for rehearing and reversed. It may also help the injured worker to get the WCB and/or the WCTs to move things along if they are taking to long to
schedule a hearing and/or render a decision.
It should be noted that up and until a few years ago Judicial Review was not used or more accurately not accepted by the courts.
You should now that the courts are rather hesitant on using Judicial Review. It is like the courts are the 'big brother' to the administrative boards & tribunals and really don't like taking action against heir own.
As I say, at every higher level of appeal you go through, it becomes even harder to win.
In some cases it is virtually impossible to get your decision reversed or changed.
This is why it is always best to do your best at the lower decision levels.
In Canada, most Provincial and Territorial jurisdictions have a written law, which allows for Judicial review, as well as the Federal jurisdiction.
This may also be the case in other common law countries such as:
United Kingdom, Australia, the united Sates and many others.
While the procedures and explanations are done in Ontario Canada they can be applied to most other provinces, States of other countries. Just review the applicable laws.
Amazing! Well, for sure to me, at least!
I believe it will be amazing to injured workers and/or family members of injured workers. For even though this injured worker is doing what he can for himself, he's also helping others! Hallelujah!
Truthfully, I have no idea whether or not this injured worker is Christian, even though he is posting that information to help others. However, he is doing what God would want each of us to do.
Thinking of that, made me think of Matthew 7:12, "Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.".
Amen! Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.
Helping others is so very important. Just as we read in today's Bible verse.
Helping others, is what this injured worker is doing.
For this, I'm thankful. And, will pray for him.
Please join me in prayer.
Please... pray for this injured worker, and for every other injured workers.
May God bless you.
Until next time...
