Move & New Career: How Does It Affect WC Distributions & Settlement? - Thain - 01-04-2012

My WC claim is in Illinois. Having been on TTD for nearly two years and not being accommodated by my employer for my doctor's imposed MMI restrictions, I am interested in a career in a new profession. Opportunities in this field are better in a different part of the country, so I would benefit by moving there as soon as possible. How would a move affect my current WC benefits and chances of a "speedy" settlement, if at all?

The move will have no effect on speeding up a settlement. I do not believe your benifits would change at all. However; I think you would have difficulty finding a dr. in the new state to handle your medical needs.

Just my oppinion.
