I was injured on the job 3 1/2 years ago. I have been receiving TPD since then. I returned to work on a limited basis in November of 2009 and on WC company continued to pay the difference since returning to work. I only actually get a check from them every three months as it seems to take them that long to get it done. My issue now is, On July 1 I was laid off for 8 weeks. I returned to work and have been working as much as I can. My workers compensation company seems to feel that they do not have to pay for the 8 weeks that I was laid off. Does anyone know anything about this?? My attorney is very dismissive and seems to think I don't need the money and I have had no luck getting in touch with him about this. I have gone through all of the evaluations and have a 23% impairment rating. I am at a medical end and we are just trying to get this settled.
