I like “using your keyboard one handed” from AbilityNet dot org in the U.K. (with or without Scotland).

There are lots of other instructions on searching the interwebs with one hand, e.g. use these search words: control alt delete one handed or computer keyboard one hand or other variations that tickle your fancy.

A recent Oregon Law Practice Management (OLPM) blog post on this subject is one place to begin reading about this subject, including brief discussions of the duties of public defenders and other government attorneys and private attorneys and liability issues.

(The other is a 2012 OSB CLE called “Lawyers and the Deaf Community.”)

Every once in a while we get a question about which AMA Guide to Permanent Impairment Oregon uses. This website and chart say Oregon uses the 3rd Revised.

The Oregon lawyers and claims administrators I talk to say this: Oregon uses standards based on 3rd Edition of AMA Guide to Permanent Impairment, however Oregon uses it own rating standards and really doesn’t follow the AMA Guide.

So, even when there is a new edition (and there is a 6th edition available now), Oregon is the only state that does not use it? But do use the ORS and the OAR to research the permanent impairment laws the state does have.
