Are They Trying to Stop Your Workers' Comp Benefits?
If you are getting workers' compensation, it is important to be aware that your employer and their workers' comp insurance company can try to stop benefits at any time.
One clear sign that your benefits may be in jeopardy is that you are sent to the company doctor for an independent medical exam. The point of these exams is for the doctor to determine that you are fully recovered. If the insurance company believes that you are recovered, it will file a termination petition to stop your benefits.
