Worker’s compensation — Maximum medical improvement — Burden of production
In 2015, Cynthia Richardson, appellant, was injured on the job while working as a correctional officer for Baltimore City Detention Center. In 2017, the Workers’ Compensation Commission awarded her permanent partial disability benefits for her injury. Two years later, Richardson sought authorization for (1) medical treatment, including pain management, and (2) temporary total disability from February 18, 2019. The Commission denied her request and found that Richardson had reached maximum medical improvement.
