Received a benefit check from my TTD workmans comp claim. That was settled. Then few weeks later was paid 4 weeks of the weekly check that I was getting when I was out of work. Will this continue for a specific amount of time or is it just the 4 weeks
I cannot tell what you are being paid for from what you have written. If you were paid 4 weeks of TT for being out of work and did not make a final settlement (stipulation) of your claim, then you could still be eligible for more payments if you were out of work again. These could continue for as long as a doctor keeps you out of work. On the other hand, if you made a final settlement (stipulation) of your workers comp claim, then you would not be eligible for any other benefits except perhaps job retraining.
This answer is for general information only and is not intended as legal advice, nor does it create an attorney-client relationship. For legal advice specific to your case you should schedule an appointment with an attorney.
Unfortunately, you question is too confusing to answer properly. Please repost your question with additional detail. Or you could call the adjuster on your claim and discuss your question.
If the claim settled and was suppose to be paid in a lump sum, the 4 weeks could be the total amount you settled for (I don't know the number so i'm not sure) OR, more likely, they're paying out the settlement in installations. your adjuster could tell you- not sure if you have a decent relationship with him/her. tough call w/o knowing the case though.
