What is a Termination of Worker’s Compensation Benefits?
Termination of Worker’s Comp Benefits
After a Workers’ Compensation Carrier receives the Independent Medical Examination (IME) report and if it states a full recovery of your work injury, the Workers’ Compensation Carrier will hire an attorney to file a Termination Petition against you, the injured worker, in an attempt to stop all of your wage loss and medical workers’ compensation benefits that you are receiving.
So, what does this mean for you, the injured worker?
At this point, you, the injured worker, must hire a workers’ compensation attorney to respond and file an Answer to the Termination Petition to contest the Petition filed against you.
Note-this is time sensitive, so you must act quickly so you don’t miss important deadlines.
