Workers comp stopped sending checks.

There are a number of reasons the workers' compensation carrier may stop sending weekly income benefits checks. The work comp carrier is allowed to suspend benefits if you are released to normal duty work without restrictions or if you actually return to work. Further, in non-catastrophic cases, there is 400 week cap on benefits. Although there are legitimate reasons for suspending benefits, insurance companies frequently suspend benefits because of a mistake or based on their incorrect interpretation of the law. Further, insurance companies often do not follow correct procedures when suspending benefits which can render the suspension invalid. If your work comp benefits have been suspended, you should talk with attorney Brian H. Sumrall to determine if the suspension was legally valid and if the carrier followed the correct procedures.
