injuried while out for a workers comp injury
I'm out for a work-related injury and on workers comp. I've injured a knee and have had arthoscopic surgery on it. This knee is a service-connected disability from when I was in the military. The VA treating dr./surgeon found 2 tears of the medial meniscus and did what they could to "fix it" and they have written a slip that says do not return to work for 30 days. I will have a follow-up soon to determine how the knee is healing. Meanwhile, I am wondering about my workers comp injury. I am still on restrictions that prevent me from returning to work but those could change. If my employer was able to honor the restrictions set forth for my workers comp injury and I can't return to work because of my restrictions set by my non-work related injury I would lose my workers comp benefits, right?
