Anyone who even briefly looks at workers’ compensation will see the many different acronyms used for various things.
Attorneys, adjusters, insurance companies, and the court will throw these terms at you. There is PTP – primary treating physician, AME – Agreed Medical Evaluator, QME – Qualified Medical Evaluator, DOR – Declaration of Readiness to Proceed, TTD – Temporary Total Disability, PD – Permanent Disability, etc. There are so many more that sometimes it can get very confusing.
Not to worry, you can always call our attorney at RP Law Group and ask or contact the local Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board Information & Assistance Officer.
However, to get things started the link below is a glossary from the Division of Workers’ Compensation directly: https://www.dir.ca.gov/dwc/WCGlossary.htm
