Hi, and Welcome to JustAnswer
Thank you for question,
The Answer I am providing is information only and does not constitute the practice of law in jurisdictions where I am not licensed to practice. JustAnswer's policy and State Bar restrictions prohibit any attorney-client relationship, giving legal advice and client representation though this forum.
It does not matter that you no longer work for the same employer, or that the insurance carrier was changed for their workman's compensation insurance.
You would be contacting the same workman's compensation carrier that handled your case 5 years ago. This may pose some difficulty for you since so many years have elapsed, they found you "healed" and had your case "closed", therefore, I strongly suggest that you retain an experienced Workman's Compensation Attorney to handle the case.
BONUS is always appreciated
That is the only way I get paid
