Publisher Description

As the result of injuries suffered on November 25, 1985, in a motor vehicle accident during the course of his employment, claimant, Samuel Roger Kirkland, filed a claim for compensation benefits seeking payment of Dr. Frey's bills, additional medical treatment, and temporary total or wage loss benefits from August 21, 1986 to date. The employer, Harold Pratt Paving, Inc., and carrier, Cincinnati Insurance Company, contended that claimant had reached MMI on August 25, 1986, with no permanent disability and that it had not authorized medical treatment by Dr. Frey. A hearing was held on November 12, 1986, at which it was stipulated that temporary total disability (TTD) or temporary partial disability (TPD) benefits had been paid from November 26, 1985 through August 20, 1986. The final order of the deputy commissioner determined the date of maximum medical improvement (MMI), found no permanent impairment, and denied payment of the medical bills and wage loss benefits. Claimant appeals, contending that the order erred in (1) finding that claimant had reached MMI on October 17, 1986; (2) finding that claimant sustained no permanent impairment; (3) denying claimant's request for temporary wage loss benefits from August 21, 1986, through the date of the hearing; and (4) denying payment for Dr. Frey's bills from December 19, 1985 through August 20, 1986. We reverse. I.
