If I Am Unable To Return To The Type Of Work I Did Before I Was Injured, What Happens?

If you are released by your physician to light or limited work activity, and your employer is able to offer you employment and you do not accept it, you may risk losing your benefits. If you are working part­time or on limited duty then you may be entitled to a reduced payment of your lost wages. Compensation will be 66­2/3% of the difference between your current average monthly wage and your average monthly wage at the time of your work related injury.
