    Ok, I was injured a while ago... a couple of months ago that is. WC has decided that they will pay for my medical and stuff, but wont pay me a weekly check for some lame excuse.

    What I am asking is that A month after I got injured I decided to go back to school since it didnt look like I was going to receive any payment. I have been in school ever since my injury and havent been looking for work(well i was looking for work for a while but couldnt find anything). Is this going to count against.

    Looks like you need a good WC attorney. If you are getting medical and stuff you should be getting a check. Did the company let you go? Why?

    An attorney can tell you what to do as far as Unemployment or WC checks. In some states WC pays for education. Mine doesn't.

    It could.
    Each state has it's own work comp regulations and some may decide you voluntarily took yourself out of the labor market.

I am in Ohio.............
    You would think that WC would want us to do something so we can get out of this joke of a system...Just another way for the i/c to control us

    Your attorney could tell you that. I don't know but I hear Ohio's WC is really bad.

    newedge,

    Doesn't sound right to me. I would consult with another WC attorney. or 2 or 3 or 4. Whatever it takes to get answers. Have you called your states WC board and talked to them? What state are you from?

    NewEdge,

    Were you taken out of work by your POR or did you voluntarily take yourself out of work. If you voluntarily took yourself out of work, then you won't be eligible for any kind if TTD. However, if you are out under Dr's orders then you should be receiving TTD along with medical, scrips and other benefits.

    You don't say where you live, so giving you state specific information at this time isn't feasible. However, most states have Ombudsmen that can help with questions regarding your injury and benefits.

    Not a problem Jed......after all we not only have to look out for ourselves here, but try to guide one another to the answers to questions.
