RE: Question about W2 while on WC - sparkey - 02-15-2009

Did you ever get a nurse case manager assigned to you? Just curious as they follow you around to your doctor appointments and do anything they can to get you back to work. Mine went so far as to make up a job at my work to have me just sit and be a room monitor for people waiting for their doctor and to see how long it was before they seen them. It is very tough to find light duty for a person that has a injury to their dominant hand, but they found one.

What was your job at the time of injury? Nothing says you cannot find a job within your restrictions if your employer does not let you back.

what is a PIR settlement ?

RE: Question about W2 while on WC - Still in Limbo - 02-16-2009

From what I understand PIR Means Permanent Injury Rating. You say You have Blown through Your Savings and such,, which I Totally Understand, but aren't You Collecting any Monies from w/c for Wage Replacement while You've been Off?

P.S- Your State would Help the Folks on Here Greatly to Help with Your Questions, w/c is State Specific. We're not PI's trying to Figure Who You are and Where You Live, just other Injured Workers trying to Help!!

My work had a department called rehab for years where they would stick people with restrictions. They got rid of it around a month ago but some employees had been in that department for years, one was in it for somewhere around 15 years.

1) As Still has mentioned several times, we really need to know what state you are in. Otherwise you are wasting everyones time.

2) When you are changing ballasts and bulbs (I am thinking flourescent), are you on a ladder? How can you do that without using your left arm? Is that still within your restrictions?

3) If you are working, it generally does not matter whether it is payroll or 1099. Still is correct, you need to report any work activity producing income to the WC insurer. To fail to disclose that, or intentionally leave it off any income statements you have to sign, could constitute fraud. I am not saying that is what is happening, but you need to understand that as you move forward.

Now, what state are you in?

If your Billing someone for work performed by you, that is self-employment.

For god sake tell us the state you are in, -----were just tring to help. If for some reason you neglected to tell them, fess up and clear it up before it gets worse. I dont know if you r still collecting wc checks but be carefull----restrictions are no heavy lifting of left arm more then 5 pounds and limited or no use of left arm. They find out your climbing ladders they will turn it all around on you. But on the other hand if I have taken it all wrong, and you have not worked you may be entitled to more funds from not being able to do both jobs.
