What Can I Expect After Being Injured on the Job?
After you have been injured, your employer needs to supply you with a choice of three physicians to provide medical treatment and determine what, if any, restrictions need to be placed on your ability to perform your job.
- If you are unable to return to work due to restrictions that are put in place, you may be entitled to temporary total disability benefits.
- If a physician determines that your injury will be permanent, you may be entitled to permanent partial disability or permanent total disability
