The Westfall decision changed the law and took temporary benefits from being only 104 weeks or two years total to being five years for temporary total disability and we believe also five years for temporary partial disability. So essentially, it extended what would have been two years to possible ten years worth of temporary benefits for you. It affects every case because any time that you're placed at a light duty status or no work status, it extends that benefit period. It also affects every case and your case because it increases the value of all claims and the potential that the insurance company will have to pay for all claims, so it was a landmark decision which increased benefits for all injured workers.
