Since you don,t have other sources of income, keeping you off work indefinitely is not a favorable situation.
Your atty can subpoena your medical records and have them forwarded to the doctor.
Your atty needs a plan to get the case moving.

i agree and thank you for response. being off of work with no income really is not a favorable situation. just like everything else i guess hurry up and wait. good day everyone.

It has been a while since you posted about your situation. What is the reason again you are not receiving TTD?

I am curious how many applicant attorney's actually send records to the AME? From what I have seen many just wait until IC does it.

Yes someone needs to send those records or he may be in work comp purgatory for who knows how long.


RE: occ lung disease in ca - christofear - 01-15-2020

well to tell you the truth i dont know why im not recieving any TTD yet. maybe because a notice of delay for factual med evidence., i really dunno, or as you previously mentioned a dr's note. which they now have. 90 days is approaching quickly. but im sure they have delay notices from here to china lol and back. I am glad i hired an attorney. and im glad that there are sites like this one to help people like me. thanks for the responses. great site by the way admin.

The wording and timing of the notices to you about their delay in making a determination on your claim is legally mandated. You will not be paid TD while they are investigating your claim. Without any new information since your claim was filed, you should expect a denial at 90 days.
Litigation is a long process as both the employer and employee are now afforded similar standing as evidence is gathered and presented to the court.


RE: occ lung disease in ca - christofear - 01-16-2020

ok,The only new information since i filed would be from the QME/AME exam.


RE: occ lung disease in ca - christofear - 01-21-2020

ok in my previous post i thought i was scheduled for an QME/AME but i was wrong. Since i filed i recieved a notice of delay for medical evidence I was scheduled to see a PTP handling my WC claim. My PTP ran alot of test and has me off of work until further notice.I have seen him twice so far.Today in the mail i recieced a notice from the defense attorney for an agreed upon QME exam. The QME appointment is 2 months away. 90 days is coming up fast and i still have not heard anything either way(accepted or denied)from the IC. i did apply for SDI since my PTP has me off of work indefinately.

will SDI mess with any WC benefits i may recieve??


RE: occ lung disease in ca - 1171 - 01-22-2020

SDI will file a lien. If the case is accepted, comp will reimburse your SDI account from any disability benefits owed.
