I have a hearing coming up in May. Injured Jan 04 knee, back, elbow and hand. My neck was a little stiff. My injury was a slip and fall on ice during the day at my job. I called my HR person and reported the injury and she filed my paperwork. I assumed they have accepted the claim because WC has been paying TTD up until now. I had knee surgery in Sept. I developed RSD, and has had a lot of other issues going on in the knee like subluxation, chromalacia, neuroma, torn meniscal, tendanitis, and how boat load of stuff. RSD developed in November-doctor caught in it time I hope. I have lower back pain which has been diagnos as sciatica. I have been going to PT and following my PTP orders. IC asked for an IME in Jan and April both stated I am OK. Cut my PT down to 1x a week and stated my RSD has resolved. Stated I could go back to work full time full duty. I not sure what reports he is looking at because that is so not true. I recently ask my doc if it was ok to work and he said I can try light duty for 3x a week. My job was terminated in Nov 04. I called my employer and ask for light duty-no response from employer. I am represented by an attorney. What can I expect at the hearing? I need PT to fight the atrophy, RSD, sciatica issues, voc if I am eligible and ready,obtain mileage and future medical care. What do I need to do to prepare for this hearing? I never had any work related injury as the IME state my knee and back injury are preexisting? Any information would be helpful. I am in the MD area. Thank you.
