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

If you can return to work, but your injury stops you from earning as much as you used to earn, you may receive partial benefits. Partial benefits are equal to 80% of the difference between what your average weekly wage was before your injury and your earnings after you return to work.
