Legal Answers
408 Questions Answered
Q. I have a compensation case that medical needs to be settled. I am on Social Security and in need of a lawyer.
A: This is a question and answer forum where we are not supposed to specifically solicit business. That being said, any poster on this site including my office or any other workers' compensation attorney should be able to assist you with this request. Simply call or email one of the attorney's to make an appointment.
Q. Am I entitled to my husband workmen’s check? He just passed today. He has several months of checks due.
A: Workers' compensation pays wage loss and medical bills related to the work injury. Wage loss and medical would end as of the date of death. Therefore, if you are talking about ongoing wage loss benefits, you would not be entitled. If you are talking about past due wage loss, you may be entitled. Similarly if you are talking about an award of specific loss for an amputation or facial scar, you may be entitled. As you can see, this is not a simply yes or no answer. I would suggest that you schedule an appointment with a workers' compensation attorney to discuss the specific facts of your husbands case to obtain a better answer.
Q. Second opinion doctor finds I'm not at MMI and need revision surgery after MRI is misread by radiologist and 1st doctor
A: If you have an attorney discuss this problem with them. If you do not have an attorney, you really should obtain one. There may be ways to move your treatment forward more quickly despite the adjuster.
