Hi my husband was injured in March of last year. Was reported to work but they didn't tell work comp til November. Meanwhile hubby went to Dr. , Chiroprator, therapy, injections, pain meds etc.
He has a lawyer and has done everything asked of him. He saw the IME last week. Then saw his spine specialist that told him he's as good as he will ever get and wrote down PPD. lots of restrictions and to never return to his type of work again as an occupation.
What we read in his lawyers papers is after he gets his disability rating that work comp doesn't have to pay him anymore....What now??? since it will be 9-12 months til a hearing date.. Can he get unemployment? We'll be up the creek without a paddle. I have a job but it doesn't pay well.
If anyone has info please let me know. Thanks
