    Default Can WC Stop Payments

    I was wondering if WC can stop my payments if they decide to do so. My case is long and confusing but I was re injured at work and it is a whole different injury that needs to be addressed my attorney has filed a petition to have it added but unfortunately my initial injury cannot be addressed until the new injury is fixed first. Yay WC blah

    Yes, but they are subject to penalties without a legally justified reason.

    Hatrick, knowing you are in Pa. I can try to help you with the law here. The only way they can legally stop your payments is to file a petition for superceadeas with a Workers Comp Judge and request a hearing date. At that time they will try to convince the Judge that payment should be suspended until such time as these Issues are resolved. Can't remember if you have counsel or not but if you do He'll be able to help you along better than I can. But hold this in mind, very few times does a Pa. Judge take away your TTD, they understand people have to live. Hope this helps you relax some and don"t worry unless you recieve something like that in the mail. I received one a long time ago and it's a little scary to receive but you'll get through it. One other thing, when you win and they have to continue to pay, your attorney will start getting his 20% from your check every two weeks. Sorry to tell you that one!!

    My lawyer contacted me regarding my check. It was a computer glitch in the system they dont know what happened. Me thinks I have read that excuse a few hundred times on this site.
