wc said they would pay my medical but not time missed from work. - buildergirl1973 - 06-16-2008

hey, just found this site lots of informative posts. i was injured at work in april of 03 had surgery in sept of 03 didn't have any problems with wc. now its 08 and i'm hurting, wc approved for me to see dr. but they said they are not responsible to pay for anything other than medical. i am going to need surgery again which will put me out of work about 3 months. i live in ga and still work for same company but they changed wc carriers. thanks, hope you can help. i dont have a lawyer.

Did you settle your claim but left medical open?

generally entitlement to temporary disability payments is limited.
you can find out the time limit for georgia by contacting the board:

"The State Board of Workers’ Compensation will provide you with information regarding how to file a claim and will answer any other questions regarding your rights under the law. If you are calling in the Atlanta area, the telephone number is (404) 656-3875. Outside the metro Atlanta area, call 1-800-533-0682"
