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

If the return to work enables the employee to receive wages equal to or greater than they were earning prior to the injury then it is likely that benefits will be stopped. If, however, the employee is still experiencing a wage loss, they may continue to receive wage loss benefits, although the benefits will most likely be for a lesser amount.
