What If I Cannot Do My Job After An On-The-Job Injury?
Ideally, everyone who is injured on the job will receive the health care he or she needs for a full recovery and then he or she can return to work. But, not everyone can return to work. Serious and permanent injuries can create problems that prevent people from being able to fulfill the necessary responsibilities of their positions.
Did The Doctor Say You Were OK To Work, But You Are Not?
Too often the insurance company doctors send people back to work too soon. People may not be recovered fully enough to do their old jobs, but the insurance companies do not want to pay for benefits.
People may be forced to go back to work while still in great pain. They may believe they have to do it, and when they try and it hurts, they get dispirited and quit. That may be the exact outcome the employer and insurance company want.
If you feel that you were forced to go back to work too soon, we will be happy to discuss your situation with you.
How Have Your Injuries Impacted Your Ability To Work?
There are several different categories of disability that the workers’ compensation system uses to categorize people’s injuries:
- Temporary partial disability
- Temporary total disability
- Permanent partial disability
- Permanent total disability
