    Default If You Settle Everything but Medical, What Benefits Do You Get if Disabled by Surgery

    If I do settle with WC, everything other than medical, and 2 years from now I have to have surgery on my wrist, will I be able to get weekly benefits, travel pay, etc, and have to go through another settlement again or do they only pay the medical bills?

    much depends on your states work comp rules.
    generally if you close out disability then it cannot be reopened.
    P.S. most carriers/employer will not settle only part of a claim.

    Yup...your STATE would be important to know...

    If the indemnity is paid out, and you have a stipulated agreement, or finding by a comp court judge, then there is generally no more TTD paid, only the medical benefits. Other than that... your question is too broad.
