take the first step. try and work out some modified work at least.
the longer you're out the the greater the financial drain.


I have got a dr note saying no restrictions...not that I think it is correct as I know I can not do my current job, but made the mistake of saying I am looking for another job and of course will have a hard time with a open wc claim...any way what do I do now...do I settle with wc or is that done..do I what for my employer to call me (been a bunch of stuff going on when I was out...) should I call wc ins. I do have some other jobs in the works. Not sure if I am being clear in my questions...

Thanks

if you don't agree with your doctor then you can change at any time to another doctor in the MPN.
you can also dispute the doctor's findings on disability by requesting a QME
more information here

what you do depends on whether your condition is permanent or temporary.
getting back to work with the same employer or another is the best way to limit the financial losses.

you can contact the carrier or even discuss your options with an I&A officer

I for sure would like to go back to work, I just know for a fact I will have issue with doing my job for 8 hours...I think by saying I was off work again, and that I was looking for a another job, kind of worked againist me.
If I am correct my employer doesnt have to hold my job for me. which maybe what happens. My concern is to make sure I get future medical and how do I go about doing that.
thanks again

either your treating doctor or the QME files a report recommending future medical.
the carrier and you can file a written agreement (stipulation) with the comp court that your injury requires a provision for lifetime future medical care.
the court will issue an award to that effect.
lifetime care for an injury is the default option in california.
only if your claim is bought out with a lumpsum is that benefit unavailable.
