Comp rates increased

The new maximum weekly comp  rates effective July 1, 2013  are:

TTD/PTD/DEATH  $853.08
PPD                          $446.85
MILEAGE                       .535

The Department now has now reached out to workers to explain many circumstances why they should hire  lawyers to pursue their benefits such as being "uncomfortable" or "confused" and "not happy."    The Department then goes on to explain not to get too upset with your comp lawyer handling  because they are busy people and can only handle so many things at once.

 "Remember that, while this is your only case, your lawyer has many cases and  clients. After all, you wouldn’t want a lawyer who doesn’t have clients!"

MATA couldn't have written anything better!
