A: If you start working while receiving temporary total disability, then you must notify the workers' compensation carrier immediately and your checks will stop. You are not entitled to temporary total disability if you are working. You should be with an attorney about your workers' compensation claim. All attorneys handle these cases on a contingency fee.

A: You will need to notify your Workers Compensation Lawyer and/or the Commission that you are receiving income while collecting benefits. Be advised that failure to report income could have serious consequences.

A: It is never a bad idea to work, so long as you were not violating work restrictions from your doctor and so long as you were reporting any income to your Worker’s Compensation carrier.
