Yes, they generally should continue to pay you you WC benefits absent going through some process – which could be as little as a paper notice if you return to work with no loss of wages or a full blown hearing. These moments in your claim also often influence later moments when action is being taken to stop you benefits. It is certainly a good idea to get an attorney in your corner now if you have a serious injury. Things are often not the same between employer and employee after a serious injury, especially with the addition of a WC insurer into the relationship. It is usually free to talk to a WC comp attorney so low risk, high reward.
