    What is the difference between worker's compensation and personal injury?

    Both involve physical injuries. However, if you are injured in the job, it is called workers compensation. The workers compensation procedure is more straightforward and does not involve a court trial or a jury. Since it is so different, if you have a workers compensation injury, you should turn to the workers compensation page on this web site.

    Is synthetic motor oil better than conventional oil and what are the benefits?

    With today’s technology, synthetics tend to be cleaner and provide better performance than conventional oil. Their composition is much cleaner, because it is derived in a laboratory rather than nature, and it has been proven to have a lower volatility and therefore not vaporize out the exhaust as quickly.

    Synthetics have also been shown to produce less resistance, improving horsepower and the overall efficiencyof the engine. This added horsepower in return means that the engine will be able to perform at the same level as before, but using slightly less gas.

    How do I pay for nursing home care?

    Chris Jensen accepts Medicare, Medical Assistance, many approved insurances and private payment. To qualify for some Medicare benefits, you must be hospitalized for at least 3 days and meet additional criteria. You will also need to have certain special services provided at the nursing facility. This could be a complex wound care, Physical therapy, Occupational therapy or Speech therapy services, IV medications, alternative nutritional support, a new chronic illness diagnosis or a need for self-care education. Medicare will pay for 100% of room and board, therapy and medications for the first 20 days. After 20 days there is a daily co-payment. Some insurance plans will pay your co-pay and others will not. Coverage may last up to 100 days.

    Medical Assistance is based on individual financial situation. An application may be completed through St. Louis County. Our social workers are happy to assist with this and other forms of insurance.

    Do you need to replace hybrid batteries?

    Your hybrid battery pack should last for the lifetime of the vehicle, considered between 150 and 200 thousand miles, and may last even longer. Hybrid-related components for Toyota hybrid vehicles are covered for 8 years/100,000 miles. The HV battery may have longer coverage under emissions warranty. Plus, when it’s time to dispose of the battery, nickel metal hydride batteries are benign and can be fully recycled, posing no toxic hazards to the environment.
