So I had an injury while on the job as an EMT. Doctors did surgery to fix the issue (recurrent dislocation of the thumb). The doctors would not release me to go back as an EMT but they let me go to work as Asset Protection (security) for a retail corporation. I couldn't live on the workers comp checks that weren't arriving on time. So I went and got that job. I have made multiple apprehensions (caught shoplifters) and every time I make an apprehension the shoplifter has to be detained... I have to grab them and escort them back to our office. 90% of the time I end up hurting my thumb. I think I made a bad decision by going to work asset protection. What can I do??
