readiness to proceed - st. clare - 08-07-2009 08:57 PM
I received in the mail today from the work comp insurance/employer law firm a letter stating readiness to proceed. It did not mark anything denied so what does that mean? my claim has been in delay. does this mean acceptance now and I will get benefits?

each state has their own rules; it could mean any thing.
If your claim is litigated it usually is a request for a court date.
without knowing your state I can't say.

oh sorry, as it seems there are many on here from the State of California. So even though the letter states such things as Admit to my profession, Admit to my weekly wage amount, allow medical treatment that is reasonable etc according to guidelines per labor code something etc basically saying admit to everything and not marking anything denied this just means they want to go to trial? It is not stating my claim is accepted? So I am still going to have to wait for payment of benefits then huh

the adjuster will send a benefit notice with a check when they've agreed to accept the claim.
the delay notice should have given you a date when to expect further information and a reason for the delay.
they have 90 days to investigate. after that they have to pay or reject.
if you don't know why your claim is delayed call the adjuster and ask.
the guidebook has more information
