How Does Refusing Surgery Affect The Case?
#2
generally if there are no other treatments available then you would be found to at Maximum Medical Improvement and would proceed for permanent impairment determination.
once you are at MMI you would no longer be temporarily disabled and those benefits would stop.
SSDI has different rules then comp.
SSDI eligibility is based on one year of inablility to work: a physician would have to have a different opinion on that to affect those benefits. if you are only partially disabled you would not be eligible for SSDI. it is likely that for workers comp you would be permanently partially disabled.
you can request vocational rehabilitation
