You do not have to pay Temporary Disability but you will have to pay back because you are recovering from your injury. However any Permanent Disability payments are advanced payments on the % of your disability which is a factor when you settle. Those will be deducted.
I have a workers compensation and PI case open. I was declared P&S almost a month ago and haven't heard from my attorney or any of his paralegals. How soon after P&S should I expect to have the first settlement offer? I do have PD and I'm already receiving PD payments. Thank you.
There is no concrete answer. If the PTP P&S and the defense is not agreeable they can request a panel from the medical unit. Vice versa if you do not agree with report you can object to it. They can settle based on the report but a time frame consist of many factors. Remember that all PD...Read more »
You can apply for UE however you will be stating that you are able and willing to work therefore being contradicting to your injury claimed.

re-injured the same injury but wasn't at work. I still work for same company. I've been going to my own doctor and a specialist since it happened off of work. I also am not working. Do to the work restrictions my doctor gave. What options do I have of claiming this on the WC claim? the... Read more »
If you stayed with the same employer it is very likely that you have future medical open for body parts. Go to doctor and state your back is hurting due to an aggravation of your previous injury. Even if it was not at work it is an aggravation of your original work injury. Good Luck.
WC case filed 3 years ago and pending settlement. Defense is now asking for MSA when settlement will be close to 100k. I don't get SS yet and was denied but filed for a hearing. I asked my attorney's office to contact the MSA company to ask for a report saying it isn't applicable... Read more »
There are a lot of other factors to consider. Your age (if you are 60 an MSA would be necessary), if you appealed denial you are pending a decision and might be eligible however if this is the case you can submit documentation that you are withdrawing your appeal decision and sign documents that...Read more »
The doctor should have given you some Impairment rating. You should be getting paid Permanent Disability Advances based on the rating of indemnity. If you did not get indemnity based on report you need to object to it and request a PQME. BUT WHAT YOU REALLY NEED IS AN ATTORNEY. Good Luck!
Cannot really understand your question. If you are asking what does Social Security Indemnity offer for someone that receives a WC lump sum settlement the answer is nothing. If you want to know how to not lose SSI benefits when receiving a lump sum the answer is the hartman formula which based on...Read more »
If you filed a workers compensation claim you need to serve either the Workers Comp insurance carrier or your attorney. The WCI must take care of the bill and if you went as a work related injury the medical provider should know that they need to file a lien and not bill you directly. Consult...Read more »

I have a workmans comp case injury. Though it is now closed. I still have medical open. Therefore, my attorney still represents me, with helping get me seen by doctors or on the potential future medical settlement part. The point is, my attorney hasnt got me the help i need. Or the insurance hasnt.... Read more »
I do not understand your question or how anybody can answer it. I'll try my best.
What can you do? You can drop attorney and represent yourself on the management of your future medical. The Stipulation you signed (settlement docs) should dictate what body parts you get treatment...Read more »
You can if doctor permits it and you are complying with restrictions. However once you work you are no longer temporary TOTALLY disabled and your payments will be deducted or stopped. If you make less driving than what you did at your job you got injured on you can make an argument that they...Read more »
You would need a doctor's report stating you cannot drive. You will then need doctor to RFA (request for authorization) transportation. If they do not approve it you have an argument that you are TTD until you are able to drive. This turns complex and would highly recommend that you talk to...Read more »
related to his disability would be covered for life. The workers' comp company is no longer paying for much of what they agreed to. What can I do? The law firm that handled the claim is no longer in business.
We all wish it would be that simple but unfortunately the system is not. In order for your uncle to receive medical attention it has to be requested by doctor in the mpn. After request UR can deny, accept or modify. If they deny or modify you can do an IMR appeal. If IMR denies (very likely)...Read more »
The answer is Yes. If they are able to accommodate your restrictions they do not have to pay WC benefits. However if doing your restricted job duties you feel pain you can have a re-eval with doctor to further modify. In addition, if you do not agree with a doctor's determination you can...Read more »
