SECTION 12 Examinations, Otherwise Known as the IME

You have been injured at work. Your employer is paying your medical bills. Your doctor has taken you off of work, and you are receiving your TTD (Temporary Total Disability) payments regularly and on-time. Your case is moving along fine, but your pain is not improving, and now your doctor wants you to have surgery. You then receive a letter from your employer's Workers Compensation insurance carrier, and they are requesting you to drive 150 miles to see a doctor you have never been to before. They are also telling you that until this examination is complete and they have received the findings from the doctor, they are not willing to authorize the recommended surgery. 

Car manufacturer adds extra software to pass emissions testing in U.S.

It is being alleged that the Volkswagen Audi Group, a German car manufacturer, purposefully and intentionally modified some of the computer codes in some of their diesel automobiles in order to comply with and pass United States and European Union emissions regulations and guidelines. The car manufacturer admitted publicly that they added additional software to the cars in order to make the cars falsely pass emissions testing. Without this modified software it is believed that the vehicles in question actually produce as much as 40X as much pollution as Volkswagen had indicated that they did.
