Arms and legs are your extremities.

Is the "BACK" considered: "Lower Extremity?"

Thanks. I just worry about getting tied up with an attorney and losing what I have had to fight for on my own. I just don't understand all of the legal jargon they use.

Rivkah - sorry, that is a for profit business. No ads in our forums except by PEN sponsors.

Brownbomber2 /m13283 - I will pass on giving my opinion on that - just don't understand a lot of this class action case. Sorry.

Does this apply to any schedule award that is in the process? I looked for months trying to get an attorney to help me and finally had to go it alone after being turned down by every attorney I contacted. My award is now in front of a 3 judge panel that is going to decide how that was handled. The other problem is that although one of my injuries falls under that time frame, the injuries that got me forced off the job occurred just about 7 months after this time frame. Those injuries are the ones that they really got serious about getting me off the job and they were relentless, both the postal service and OWCP. I have a friend who was hurt 3 years ago and they are still harassing that carrier trying to get rid of them.

Brownbomber2 /m13279 - That is the correct link - Quick Topic, the forum, is not parsing it correctly. If it will not open from this link then go to my blog and search (top right corner) for NRP CLASS ACTION – IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED...just enter those words and hit your Enter key.

Brownbomber There is a working link on the home page from April 5. You should be on the nrp forum for info and can go to nrpclassaction.com for info. There is a lot of confusing info on the nrp forum. The letter from the lawyers overrides anything on the forum. The new letter at the link clarifies what you already have.

Rick Message 13278 The link will not open, it says page not found. I got a letter from some lawyers a few days ago wanting to represent me for 30% of what they get for me. Is this the same thing?

I have recently had Knee replacement. I have been out of work for four years, and I have been on Comp. The doctor said I cannot return to work as a city letter carrier. I am 60 years old with Twenty years on the job. My husband says I should file for a disability retirement because I may not recover full function of my knee. I am not really sure of my options. can anyone help?

@Brownbomber2 I think there is a whole lot of us that were actually walked out or not let back after injuries since 2011. I was interviewed in 2010 and went off restrictions rather than go home as I was told would happen. Since I returned to full duty and never should have I kept getting worse. I was put back on restrictions in 2011 and the USPS has decided that since I returned to full duty all of the job offers I have worked (as they changed a few times), were no longer due to my work injury. I was told no more work for you in 2015 and terminated due to my disability. The NRP never stopped in my opinion they just don't have a fancy name for it. I think we need to figure out how to show that they are still singling us out, discriminating, and ignoring the ADA same as before. Finding an attorney willing to prove this is the daunting part.

I just got the letter yesterday about NRP and it apparently runs up to a few months before I got hurt in 2011. Is there any chance that you can tie a claim in on this that happened later than the dates in the letter? I was hurt in November of 2011 and finally forced onto disability retirement in 2015 after have never returned to work because I was told they had nothing I could do. Their NRP representative came out and told me several lies, which I recorded and had transcribed and told me I would have to drive 60 miles to a job answering phones for $10 an hour. I declined and they cut my benefits in half. When I tried to get help from my union, I had no luck. I could not find a lawyer anywhere that would take my case and my congress woman said she could not act as my attorney and therefore could not help me.

Thank you for the information! Did anyone else that is receiving PR payments with OWCP look to see if they received their cola? I didn't get it! I talked to my CE and she is looking into why. Sure hope this doesn't screw up my payment.

Same thing happened with me, only I was forced into retirement. I got hurt in November of 2011 after all of this supposedly happened and they were definitely hostile toward me. A friend who was a rural carrier had the same thing happen about 4 years ago and they treated her the same way and she finally had to take disability retirement too. OWCP does anything they want and nobody can hold them accountable.
