Legal Answers
4 Questions Answered

Q. The (Georgia)therapist that was provided by the workers compensation is improperly treating me, how can I change?
A: I'd need to know a bit more information but you are entitled to a change in treating physician off the Panel of Physicians. You get ONE change. This sounds like more of a referral doctor so more information would be needed on that.
Q. I need to know why they said they would only pay 62% of my wages. Is this right or not?
A: If you are off work due to a work injury you are entitled to weekly income benefits that are calculated by taking 2/3 (or 66%) of your average weekly wage for the 13 weeks prior to your date of accident subject to a maximum of $500 if the injury is before July 1, 2013. This is the law and it's not negotiable unfortunately.
Q. I have a worker's compensation case open in Georgia and require surgery. Can I get the surgery in NY State?
A: You will need to ask the insurance adjuster handling your claim.
Q. If I take a workers comp settlement can they demand my resignation, I just want them to do a knee replacement
A: You have two options if the insurance company is fighting the knee replacement suggestion. You can go to a hearing and let the judge decide or you can accept a lump sum settlement, if that is offered. Typically with a lump sum settlement you will have to resign. I am not sure why you were told you might lose your job if you went to a hearing. You may need to consult another attorney if your attorney is not answering this for you.
