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

If your employer has employment available to you within your medical restrictions and you decline, your employer may request a modification or termination of your benefits. If you do return to work and wages are less than what you earned before the injury, you may be entitled to partial disability. Wage benefits usually will equal approximately 66­2/3 of the difference between your current earnings and what you earned before your injury, not exceeding the maximum compensation rate for the year you were injured.
