No, my 2012 case was different than my current case. two different case numbers. my last case was for a lumbar strain and sprain cervical strain and sprain but I went back to work 2 years after that and was injured again in 2018 and my current case is for my L4 L5 disc herniation. I did 60 days recently they took my TTD and now I have to go see a ime doctor to get it started back again if they don't consider me MMI
Okay I have another question while I'm waiting for my TTD to get back on is it okay to file for SSDI or SSI while I'm still in a workman's comp stage or will it be offset at some point? I don't want to be and the status of overpayment can't afford it
Okay thanks Tony and my apology about same question
My fault the airdalr

Sounds like you had a contingency fee for the proceedings at the Commission but it did not cover the representation on an appeal to the general courts. So I suspect you have no choice but to enter into a new fee agreement. But a lawyer in Ohio posts on here sometimes, Kristin Cool, and she could give you a definitive answer as to how things work in Ohio.
