Work injury and restrictions question.
#5
If they do not have work within your restrictions, you have a claim for wage loss benefits. Like Bummer said, the restrictions are there for a reason. If your employer does not voluntarily start payment of wage loss benefits, you will need to file a petition. I am very familiar with PA WC laws, so feel free to message me privately if you have any specific questions that you do not want to post on the general forum.

Bummer Knees Wrote:The doctor gave you lifting restriction for a reason, to prevent additional injury.

Working outside of the lifting restrictions will only cause harm to yourself.

Most states wage loss is paid under work comp when an injured worker is not able to work and has not reached MMI.
