Unrelated Injury & Covered Injury
#1
Hi, thanks in advance for any help. I have a claim with a consideration date of 10/12, in Maryland. I am under the care of a dr who has me fully off work. My injury is for shoulder & neck as a result of a trip & fall - my question: I have major back issues (unrelated to this claim) and am slated for spinal surgery in early November and will be out of work due to that for 3 weeks. If my work injury has not resolved by that time and my off work weeks overlap (WC claim & back surgery recovery), will WC pay those 3 weeks? I'm guessing they won't, since I'd be out of work sans the work injury... but, if I'm still under the other dr's care for the shoulder, they would pay? Confused & confusing, sorry.

Generally comp will pay as long as you are verified disabled by the doc.
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.
THANKS FOR POSTING.
