I received my AME Report along with a check for Permanent Disability - ocruby770 - 12-08-2011

This past Saturday I received the AME report along with a check paying me out permanent disability benefits for months March 09' to June 09'. The claims examiner letter stated that PD have now been paid in full. The AME reported stated that I was permanently disabled with a 10% whole body impairment and that further medical treatment for my wrist is needed. The Dr. also stated that he does not believe I would be capable of returning to my usual and customary duties. I found this discouraging since all I do is clerical work. My question is, the check I received paying me for PD benefits from 2009 my final payment? Am, I entitled to a settlement or award with possible future medical treatment? I have an attorney but I haven't been able to reach them all weekSad I'm so worried and stressed, I just want it to be over. P.S. I'm from California and this case has been open since Aug. 2007.

no.
buying out any future medical is up to what you can negotiate with the carrier. they can chose to leave it open and pay as needed.

i thought you repugs hated all government regulations; especially "socialist" things like workers comp....
if you left it to up to the employers and carriers, most workers wouldn't even get a little check.

thanks for the heads up. It looks like I have to have another surgery to remove a cyst that grew apparently caused by the initial surgery. So I'm at least happy that I can get that taken care of. Unfortunately I now have to turn down 2 positions with the company where I was initially injured, due what was stated by the Dr. on the AME report.

"little" is an understatement!

I see. it's still an entitlement program. you just pick which ones you like and which you don't.

stone age morality & survival of the fittest: "if you can't/won't work as hard as me you don't deserve to be here. please die off and quit spoiling my world."

I didn't know your last name was scrooge.

Merry Christmas, Jayne.
