 I know that. How about a CA 7 for a award from acceptance, what is that time period. How long can a case stay open?

My life-
You have three years from last exposure to your work factors that contributed to occ disease to file a CA-2 https://www.dol.gov/owcp/dfec/fec-faq.htm

You didn't answer me about your claim still being open, ask your examiner that has your claims #. Or speak to a supervisor at DOL, I've done very well speaking to a supervisor. Some examiners are terrible. Have your uninformed union asked higher up who can do your workers comp. Attorneys just take your money they can't sue federal dept. of labor, that is what I've learned. Your Doctor is the one that has to write it up correctly. I had to take a second on my house and 6 credit cards. Now almost everything seems to be getting right for me.

How to file if thee second injury happened over a period of time. The union referred me to see an attorney. They didn't speak of a representative.
What's the time frame to change the way that it was filed?

Reggie-
Common sense would agree with you but OWCP usually will not...at least not right away. It could be a long fight and expensive. It is usually is easier to play their game and file a new claim.

If your first case is still open this would be part of that case.  If you have not gotten an award.  You've gotten worse under the same case go to emergency anytime you can't walk.  Don't wait to see your Doctor when you are better like the next day or so.  Your Union can refer you to a representative that is paid just to help you with DOL OWCP.

Do not use an attorney you'll waste your money.  Your union has a representative that is paid to help you free.  Your Doctor has to write the correct language and words, especially his OPINION, diagnoses with codes and assessment.

My very first serious injury at work I had the same issue as you. A wonderful lawyer beat it into my head that I DID NOT have a recurrence of disability and neither do you. If you re injured your back in ONE day then you have a NEW injury claim. File a new CA-1 and withdraw your CA-2a as it was in error. If you don't believe me read, and re-read the instructions on the CA-2a. The CA-2a trap is a quite common problem.

You have 14 days to file a grievance, and 45 days to file an EEO of incident. Do not wait until grievance is settled before filing an EEO of incident. You CAN file both within 14 days of incident, including on the same date.
Grievance: file within 14 days of incident.(No grievance of incident after day 14.)
EEO: file within 45 days of incident.

Neice...the other claimant never reported the problem to her phone company. Whoever was listening in stopped the tapping once they heard us discussing reporting it to the phone company...after I sent a statement saying I could hear the supervisor it stopped again. By the way whatever they were doing also interfered with other people calling me too for a few days...they corrected that but the OWCP calls were still interrupted.
