Need suggestions from work injury
it's rare that an injured worker will receive their full pay while disabled. all states  have work comp disability payments that are capped---usually at a lower rate and many for a limited time. workers comp is not liability insurance or and are not considered payments from another party who was at fault. Workers compensation is "no fault" and there are no payments for "pain and suffering". the employer cannot be sued; legally there is no employer fault. disputes are handled by a separate work comp board/commission. both the employer and the employee have to share in the monetary consequences usually thru reduced disability payments to the worker and treatment that is controlled by the employer.                              
without knowing your state I can't give you specific information on your benefits as each state has their own laws controlling what and how work injury benefits are provided.post your state and i'll give you some links with information for your state.
you have a comp claim but you do not have civil liability case.
Reminder :
........Each state has their own comp system; POST YOUR STATE to get accurate information. Use the search feature to find information from similar questions.
