Q: I’ve received workman’s over a year in MD but now haven’t had a weekly payment in over 3 weeks. Is that legal?
A: There could be a Few reasons why your check may have stopped. Best advice I can give is to contact an attorney who who handles Maryland Workers Compensation cases.
Your receipt of workers' compensation lost wage benefits is generally dependent on your physicians or another physicians opinion on your ability to return to work. If your doctor has changed his or her mind or the employer carrier has obtained an IME with a different opinion on your ability to return to work that can generally reflect in your weekly check.
If you're receiving another type of award e.g. Permanent partial disability, there could be other explanations that are not readily answerable in this format. You probably need to speak to an experienced worker's compensation lawyer.
