Legal Answers
19 Questions Answered

Q. Can my employer make me write book reports on safety as light duty work for a workers comp claim
A: 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: I will probably write an article on that case in the near future. If you want to fight this, get a good Comp lawyer in your area and stand up for your rights. Good luck!
Q. If I'm on workers compensation can I still work. I'm a sales rep for cable company and was wondering??
A: 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:
Q. My dad was hurt on the job over 20 years ago. A WC doc said he could return to work!! They are terminating his pay! ??
A: There's not really a question being posed here, and there's not enough detail to give you any kind of answer. A WC doc said he could return to work yesterday, or 20 years ago?
Q. Proof time is still open regarding your claim and attorneys are filing medical evidence at this time. What does this mea
A: 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. Here's some more information about the workers' comp system:
Q. What is the statute of limitations for a workers comp claim? Please see details.
A: 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.
Q. Hi, 1 surgery was done for rotator cuff tear, no improvement, doc says I need another surgery, but, he won't claim WC.
A: Get an attorney and - assuming the attorney thinks the injury and surgery is work related - the attorney will make the Comp carrier pay back the health insurance carrier. Here is some more information on the Comp carrier's duty to pay medical bills:
Q. i had a workers comp,settelment and was given life time medical,but the insurance co,keeps taking me back to court
A: 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 allowed to charge you now (we weren't always allowed to do that), but obviously that means you have to have the money to pay a lawyer. That's always an issue and makes these situations a terrible blight on the justice system.
Q. Was injuryed on feb32014 was told i had to come work in the office or lose my job and insurance now im being told i have
A: 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 exam. That is normal, but the person examining you is probably the employer's paid shill. Be very careful - I think you need an attorney. Here is some information about how the Workers' Compensation system could help take care of you:
Q. W/c judge approved my future medical coverage, employer still denied my needed surgery what's next?
A: 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:
