So I already have my tear in my hip which hurts everyday and yesterday I got to my second house and fell on their path....

Hip is on fire more then ever and my knee is popping and I can’t walk on it. Also has a nice bruise on the inside..

Anyway I went to reprint the ca-1 form I filled out because I dumped my coffee all over it of course and noticed a form called CA-2a notice of recurrence.

Anyone know if i should fill that out also since my hip was already injured. I’m not sure what the damage is to either yet but should know by next week hopefully once I see the ortho.

I asked the union but no response yet so I figured Id ask here. Thank you

Seems to be not many of the knowledgeable ones on here right now to answer you.
I have always been told a CA2A is an absolutely useless injury form. They are near impossible to be accepted because the chances of having a recurrence while you are working is in fact, nearly impossible. They are seldom approved because of such, so employers love to convince you to fill it out. If you were doing anything at all that caused the injury ie: lifting, bending, reaching, walking, whatever, it is a new injury. Go with either a CA1 if it happened in 1 shift or a CA2 if it was over many.

Are your hip and knee approved work injuries? Did they cause the fall? Hopefully you were not going against restrictions. I agree with Limpy in that it is not a recurrence. It could be considered a consequential injury if it was caused by previously accepted injuries. Go to theowcpclassroom.blogspot.com and do some research before you file. You will find detailed information on how to properly file your claim.

What you're describing is not a recurrence.

If you fell and were injured, that's a CA-1 claim.
