Trying to close my case..Still hurting
I have been seeing the w\c doctor for a job related injury. I'm a 25 yr. mechanic on the same job site. Doc had me on light duty for 30 days, things got better but sill had pain. Doc released me to full duty on the job and also wanted me to see an Orthopedic. Sedwick sent me a letter and said "Since I am back to work full duty they are terminating benefits"
I'm still hurting. Never got to see Ortho. as doc requested. Can they do this?
this is the forum for employers and other work comp professionals.
there is a separate forum for injured worker questions.
each state has different laws without knowing yours I can't offer specific information.
I suggest you contact the carrier and request an orthopedic consult.
followup your call with written request. you can also contact your employer and have them get authorization for a second opinion.
Reminder :
........Each state has their own comp system; POST YOUR STATE to get accurate information. Use the search feature to find information from similar questions.
