THE PROBLEM AT HAND:
COYE LAW FIRM’S SOLUTION:
3 Things about COVID-19 and your workers compensation case:
- Losing your job due to the pandemic doesn’t necessarily mean your case will be closed, it actually could result in a larger settlement amount!!
- Workers comp HAS to give you a doctor, EVEN IF the doctor won’t see you in person. This means, they may have to schedule a telemedicine visit.
- If the work comp doctor has you on light duty, and your employer is providing you with light duty, AND YOU LOSE YOUR JOB, workers comp may have to pay you temporary partial disability because you’re not working!
