DWC Posts Form for Abandonment of Claim

In a prior post, I addressed the recently-added three subsections to W.C.R.P. 7-1, including subsection subsection (E), which provides that an insurer may file a final admission of liability based on the claimant’s voluntary abandonment of a claim if the claimant: (1) is not receiving temporary disability benefits; (2) provides written notice (in a forthcoming Division form) that the claimant is abandoning current and future medical care related to the claim; and  (3) receives written notification of the reopening provisions of § 8-43-303. The DWC's website has posted a link to the form for abandonment of the claim, which can be found here.
