I just got a letter in the mail yesterday stating that I was terminated from my job because I've been out for a year under worker's comp. I haven't been released from my doctor yet, will my wkly benefits stop?? I don't even see my doctor for a check until mid January, if my doctor releases me will my benefits stop then. I've gotten a lawyer several months ago and I wasn't able to get ahold of him yet, so I'm really stressin about this. Oh, I forgot to say I was misdiagnos initially. I had a torn ligament in my foot, my jobs doctor said I had a fracture at first. It took them 5 months to realize that I had a torn ligament. Am I still entitle to my benefits and do I still get a settlemnet?? Please can someone enlighten me on any knowledge about this. I am in Maryland.
