You asked a different question a few days ago and indicated that you had a w/c attorney already. The questions that you asked today are questions that you should be asking your attorney, not a public board of people who don't know your specific circumstances and don't have an attorney-client relationship with you. If you've asked your attorney these questions and didn't get satisfactory answers, then you need to change lawyers.

If the doctor truly put you at MMI, then if the doctor continues you on a no work status, you may be eligible for additional workers' compensation benefits. This is a complex and technical issue, and it is important to see exactly what the doctor's notes and reports actually say. I would think that you should get the notes and reports, and consult with an experienced workers' compensation attorney, to confirm what the doctor's reports actually say, and what impact the opinions have with regard to what benefits you may be entitled to receive.Ask a similar question
