will i still be on light duty while waiting on my appeal
I am in Tennessee. I have pain in my shoulder and neck, I thought it was from years of over head repetitive motion and stated this when I filed my claim. My dr thinks I have an impingement or cervical spine issue from the ergonomics of my work environment and my claim was denied because I thought it was repetitive and it isn't. Dr states plainly the injury was caused at work just not repetitive. My dr. statement runs out tomorrow for light duty and I filed an appeal Tuesday so my question is are they going to make me go back to my full duties or will I stay on light duty until my lawyer gets the appeal approved? I didn't get to return to my second dr appointment because they denied my claim and cancelled it.
they can't make you do anything; you will have a choice.
they are not denying you are hurt or need treatment, just denying work comp benefits.
you can use health insurance and sick leave.
