Compensation for my "other" job - self-employed
#1
I was injured in my part-time job and have been receiving benefits. I was just cleared to go back to work. However, for my full-time job (Realtor) the workman's comp insurer has not paid me anything. I sent them (the insurer) my last 5 years of Real Estate income as my income varies. They tell me that "IF" they compensate me it will be based on my income for the previous 52 weeks from date of injury. That happens to be the worst 52 weeks I've ever had. Is this the correct way to calculate my compensation or is there another way for people in my position? I live in Massachusetts if that matters.
Thanks for any information.

that is how the law reads.

although if you can produce a better method of calculating the income/earnings you lost during the recovery period you might be able to appeal.

Reminder :

THANKS FOR POSTING.
