Re: Worker's Comp Settlement
If the employer fails to accommodate your restrictions for any reason, you're eligible for Temporary Total Disability (TTD) Benefits until you make a full recovery or become MMI (maximum medical improvement)
Because of the complexity of the system and the stunts the carrier and employer will deploy, you need to retain a lawyer.
Have no further conversations with the employer, carrier or anyone until you retain legal counsel - let your lawyer handle things from there.
Here's a good thread on how to find a lawyer
