When can workers' compensation benefits be suspended?

Being injured on the job can not only make for a bad day, but also for a bad month or months. For some, it could even spark the beginning of many bad years to come. Why? In addition to the pain and suffering these injured workers may go through, they also often face significant financial challenges. They may be unable to work and therefore suffer from lost wages, and the medical expenses incurred as part of their treatment and rehabilitation can be overwhelming. Although workers' compensation benefits may be available to these individuals, there are instances when benefits can be modified or ceased altogether.

Repetitive stress injuries and workers' compensation

Not all work-related injuries are the result of an accident. Many injuries gradually develop over time, eventually causing significant pain and affecting a person's ability to do his or her job. Repetitive stress may be unseen, but they are real injuries, and in many cases, they are legitimate grounds for a workers' compensation claim.

How can discovery help with a workers' compensation claim?

When pursuing legal action, information is powerful. Those who are fully informed are more likely to be able to put forth strong legal arguments, while the uninformed will be left at a significant disadvantage. Failing to gain access to critical information that can support one's claim can lead to denied compensation. In the workers' compensation context, this could mean losing money to help cover medical expenses and lost wages during a time when an individual is unable to work.
