If there was fraud, maybe she can get workers' comp, but I'm not sure what "cancelled it" means in this context. Talk to a comp attorney to see if there are options there.

Are you asking if you should apply for Social Security disability or workers' compensation temporary total disability? You should be on the latter now, and you should continue to be on it if the employer cannot accommodate your restrictions. If you're asking about Social Security, I would ask a Social Security disability lawyer about that, but if I were in your shoes, I would not apply for it at this time if you think you will be able to work again soon, since you are already receiving temporary total disability through comp.See question

Are weekends included in the 20 days that the IC has to send my settlement check? Going on 2 weekends for me. I'm only asking because my former co-worker received his check in within 7 days after it was approved, but I haven't. Should I be worried?
Yes. It's 20 calendar days. That said, they will often pay it early to avoid a late penalty.See question
