Below is some information pertaining to California Worker's Compensation Law that might be useful to you:

Temporary Total Disability

This is a benefit that is designed to compensate injured workers during the period of time they are unable to work because of an injury suffered while on the job. Temporary total disability is normally calculated based on two-thirds of the average weekly earnings at the time of injury.

You may also be entitled to temporary total disability if your doctor has defined temporary work restrictions, and your employer is unable to provide a position that complies with your restrictions.

Generally, temporary total disability is calculated based on two-thirds of your average weekly earnings at the time of injury.

There are restrictions and limits on your eligibility to receive temporary total disability. Many laws governing temporary total disability are dependent upon the date of your injury. Your date of injury determines which laws apply to your eligibility to receive temporary total disability indemnity.

Medical Treatment

If you have been injured at work, your employer or its insurance carrier is responsible for providing medical treatment for your injury.

Many employers have a Medical Provider Network (MPN). You may be required to treat with a physician who is a member of the MPN. You do have the right to change your treating physician as long as the new physician is a member of the MPN.

Qualified Medical Evaluation

If you or the insurance carrier disputes a determination made by your treating physician, either party may request that a Qualified Medical Evaluator (QME) be designated to provide an opinion regarding the dispute.

This is a pivotal point in your case. Do not initiate the QME process without consulting with an attorney. In general, you will only be entitled to one Qualified Medical Evaluator. If you select a Qualified Medical Evaluator and attend the examination, you will likely be stuck with that QME's opinion.

If you do not understand the above or you have any questions, please contact the Law Offices of Martin J. Beaver.
