I hand a work related injury which resulted in surgery and kept me out of work for over 8 monhts. Upon reaching MMI, I was released to full duty and currently I am employed by the same employer. I don't know if my Orthopedic Surgeon gave me an MMI rating or not but the WC Insurance company did not pay me out a lump sum. They did pay my benefits and medical bills until I reached MMI but since than I have not heard from them. Are they required to pay me a sum of money depending on my MMI rating? It only has been 3 months since I was released to full duty so I believe I still have time to be entitled to something?
