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

If your injury results in your employment in a new lower­paying job (either light duty or restricted work at your regular employer or such work at another employer), you may be entitled to Temporary Partial Disability wage differential benefits for part of the difference between your actual present earnings in your new job and the wages currently being paid in your former job.
