As Pond Lehocky remains committed to serving and assisting you through your work-related injury, we want to bring to your attention the possible impact that a layoff or furlough may have on your entitlement to workers’ compensation wage loss benefits, which you may not have considered.
If you are laid off, permanently or temporarily, while on light duty restrictions that relate to your work injury, you are likely entitled to a reinstatement of your workers’ compensation wage loss benefits, effective immediately. In order to pursue those benefits on your behalf, we need you to keep us updated on your job status. In turn, we will pursue reinstatement through all means possible.
As a reminder, if you or someone you know is out of work and age 50 or older, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation and/or Social Security disability benefits.
