A case came out on this VERY recently that suggests the answer is no, or at least that they may still have to pay you TTD. I have not written anything on that case yet, but this is the closest thing I have on my site:...View More
If you want to work, you can. You just won't get TTD and that will start the statute of limitation running. Check this out for more information: http://www.lawrencelaws.com/faqs/do-i-have-to-go-back-to-work-when-the-insurance-company-tells-me-to/
This simply means the case is ongoing and the attorneys are filing evidence with the court that they intend to use if your case has to be taken to final litigation before an Administrative Law Judge. Based on that very generic description, I'd say the attorneys are just doing their jobs....View More
I was injured on the job/received medical care via workers comp. I saw a chiropractor for 25 visits. W/C stop paying and my condition is worse. accident Dec/Jan 2012. I was hit by a FEDEX truck in the parking lot of a FEDEX facility while using the employee crosswalk. The van driver was fired and... View More
You only have two years following the date of injury or the date of the last TTD payment, whichever is later. If you did not get TTD following an injury in January 2012, then your statute of limitations expired January 2014.

Unfortunately, that is one way the Comp system is broken. The carrier can take you to court over and over again, but they don't have to pay for your costs and fees when you win. It is getting easier to find an attorney to represent you on these medical fee disputes because your attorney is...View More
They are not allowed to force you back to work and threaten your job. If you have a Workers' Comp claim, and your doctor says you need to be off work or on light duty, then the employer cannot retaliate against you that way.
As for the interview, that sounds like a standard medical...View More
You need an attorney to stop the employer from engaging in this bs behavior. Here's some information on how a medical fee dispute can not only make the employer pay for the surgery, but also possibly result in the employer getting fined:...View More
We had a balloon mortgage. it matured and the bank would not refinance. we filed bankruptcy to try to save our home. The lender came up with a proposal and we agreed. We had a phone conference to finalize everything and at that point the bank backed out. Our attorney had no clue this was going to... View More
If the master commissioner had notice of your bankruptcy, then it should not have been sold. If the master commissioner did not get notice, then the sale may have occurred anyway. If that happened, then the sale is final and the home is lost. Hopefully you got notice to the master commissioner...View More
Yes, a bankruptcy filing is public record. However, the employment retention information may not be filed with the court. It depends on the status of the case and the particular requirements for that court.
Just moved to North Middleton KY from upstate NY last week. My boyfriend has no income and has tried for SSD in NY and kept being denied. We would like to find a pro bono lawyer to handle his claim and get him his benefits as the only income we have is my SSD benefits; thus we cannot afford to hire... View More
Social Security Disability cases are handled by contingency fee only, so you never have to worry about paying as you go. Fees are 25% of the back due disability award up to $6,000.00. If you are intent on finding an attorney that doesn't get paid at all, my best guess is that you can go to...View More
If I understand your question to be: Can one spouse file a bankruptcy only for him- or her-self without the other spouse filing or knowing about it, then the answer is yes. Even when married, only one spouse needs to file. The other spouse is not part of the bankruptcy and the other spouse's...View More
i take klonopin,prozac,nuerontin,muscle relaxers 3 times a day and breating treatments 4 times a day..volteran for arthritus...seriquil at bedtime should i b eligeble for ssd benefits and what are my chances at the reconsideration level??
I would say your chances at the reconsideration level are poor, but your chances at the hearing level are pretty good. Please let me know if anyone at my office can give you more detail on what has to be proven, particularly when it comes to working a sedentary job.
Absolutely. You have the right to hire or fire an attorney at any time, for any reason. If the attorney has done something wrong that led to the termination, they cannot collect a fee. If the attorney did not do something wrong, they may be entitled to a pro rata share of any fees....View More
There is a cutoff to what you can make and still file a Chapter 7. If you want to completely eliminate unsecured debt, a Chapter 7 is the way to go. If you make too much, you will have to file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy and pay some or all of that debt depending on your monthly budget after...View More
