important question
#1
Iam supposed to go to MSC in this month,I have been rated
at 30% disabled,now Iam aware that insurance carriers
will hire private investigators to follow people around
looking for wc fraud,wich is understandable
I have all kinds of documents to prove my disability.
my question is this,can I start doing minor work around
the house,like mowing the lawn etc, etc,
I have not been able to do anything for the past 2 years.
I do feel like I want to try to move around and do things
I dont know if I still should be concerned about a private investig.
following me around ,I dont know when my case will be settled
since my atty is fighting for open medical.
thanks for you help...

you are free to do anything within your restrictions. you are not a100% disabled or expected to be a total invalid.
if in doubt discuss it with your doctor.

A PI is only valuable if you tell your doctor you can't do XYZ and the carrier has pictures of you doing XYZ.
fraud first requires a lie.

generally very few should be concerned about an investigator.
there is far more serious fraud from employers and doctors then workers.

1171 is right. As long as your doctor says you can do something, a PI taking pictures of you doing it, is useless to the IC. Just never say you can't do something that you can do. That's where the problems come in.
