Yes, the insurance company can stop paying TTD when you are found at MMI. But, the determination of MMI can be contested if your doctor believes you are not at MMI. If and when you are at MMI, however, you then become entitled to compensation for either permanent partial or permanent total... Read more »
I was injured at my job and have been off on Comp for 5 months and some change. I have been released to return to work. They are talking about demoting me from the position I was in to another. Can they do that or do they have to return me to my previous position before I got hurt?

As long as your pay is the same, they can put you in any position they need you in.

Most states have things an attorney can do to get treatment. Problem now is showing your treatment you lied about is related. Sit down with your attorney, review what can be done.
They denied my finance's referral for a doctor that may actually help & say he's reached 'maximum medical potential.' They claim there is nothing further a doctor could do, implying he is stuck with his injury the rest of his life. They have ended his pay and are referring... Read more »

If an employee was full time when work related incident happened and got workers comp but changes status from full time to casual will the employee still get workers comp?
answered on Mar 28, 2017
It depends on whether the worker has returned to work and what workers compensation benefit being referred to. If you return to work, after receiving TTD benefits, and then are reduced in hours, you will probably not receive additional TTD benefits. Your medical and all other workers compensation...
