Court of Appeals Reverses Temporary Partial Disability Award

Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control v. Blot, Record No. 1395-21-2 (Va. App. Sept. 6, 2022).

The claimant tripped over a rug and injured his knee sustaining a compensable injury by accident. Later, the claimant stopped working after receiving a note from his cardiologist taking him out of work due to COVID. The claimant admitted his decision to stop working was not due to his knee injury.

During the claimant’s absence from work, the employer replaced him.  Approximately one year later, the claimant returned to light duty work. His treating physician gave him “light duty” restrictions but did not specify what those restrictions where, nor did the doctor restrict the number of hours the claimant could work.

The employer had updated their systems in the claimant’s absence, so when he returned to work he needed to be retrained. While he was on light duty, he worked reduced hours due to scheduling issues and his need to be retrained. He began marketing his residual capacity but did not find a job.

Provider Panel Considerations

What is a panel?

A valid panel is a list of at least three different providers from at least three different practice groups from which the claimant may select an authorized treating provider.

Once a provider is selected from a panel, the claimant is limited to treating with that provider and with the referrals made by that provider.

Why is a panel important?

The panel is an important tool, as it provides some control to the employer and carrier in limiting which doctors the claimant may treat with in the workers’ compensation claim. After the treating physician is established in a claim, it can be difficult for either party to later change treating physicians unless all parties agree.
