    As you guessed, the sad reality is they probably will fire you. There are a couple of things you should do. First do not quit. Let them fire you if they want to because then they will not be able to provide light duty work. Second, you may want to document that you are being singled out in response to the write ups. Third make sure you do not have a one year gap in medical treatment or if you do file a WC-14 because there are a number of st of limitations that apply to comp claims. Fourth...

    PPD is usually the smallest of the 3 elements of a settlement-- TTD or lost time being the largest and medical being the next largest. 8% X a whole body rating of 300 weeks equates to 24 weeks of benefits but you may be missing most of the settlement money because you do not know what gives value to the claim.

    It is never too late to seek legal advice but you should do so right away. Do not try to handle this serious situation yourself or you the insurer will turn the screws to you. You need to speak to someone that handles a lot of workers' comp like one of these attorneys that answered your question.

    You need an experienced GA WC attorney. They cannot stop your checks. What may have happened is the adjuster inputted a certain number of payments to go out weekly and she just did not put in a new order for more TTD. Adjusters do this sometimes to get the claimant to call them. Anyway your case is about to get complicated and you need an experienced GA WC attorney. cell phone is-678-362-1407.

    Yes you can settle after receiving weekly benefits. You should proceed by hiring a Georgia WC attorney; get to hte best doctor to perform the surgery with the help of your attorney; have the surgery; and when you feel the surgery was successful then settle.

    It depends on whether the group is on the panel or another specific doctor on the group is on the posted panel of physicians. Either way, why would you want to go to another doctor within the same group who is not likely to go against his partner. You are better off getting an attorney to see if the panel is valid and then switching to a Claimant friendly attorney

    Of course not. It's your eye and your vision could be affected for the rest of your life. Lasik surgery may be able to correct this but you will not know unless you have comp to pay for doctors.

    Yes you can be fired but it may actually help your workers' comp case in the long run. This is not the type case you should attempt by yourself. An attorney is needed to help you protect your rights.
