HELP! What if I find different job while still being treated for injury, who pays?
Big Grin 
I am currently recieving physical therapy for a horribly sprained ankle which happened at work. I am also looking for other employment and have interviews scheduled.

I live in Wisconsin.

If I quit my job, with two weeks notice, and start a new job, but am still needing physical therapy for my injury, does the employer have to pay for the medical bills until the injury is released by the medical professionals?

I've searched through the WI state area, but can't find anything on it.

Thanks to whomever responds! I appreciate it!
Hi Pisces , I dont know the answer to your question but i just wanted to say Hi and to let you know that someone will eventually come along who can answer . Sher

Thank you so much oblivyous! Smile
hi welcome to the forum. why are you looking for another job?
Because I am moving.
did you file a wc claim? are you receiving benefits? are you working now and if so do you have restrictions?
Yes, I've filed a claim. I've had to go to physical therapy for 2 weeks now. I've been on restrictions (sit down work only). I am looking for other employment. Have interviews lined up already. If I quit my job before I'm totally healed, does the employer still have to pay for my medical treatment, or will it then come out of my pocket? I live in WI, if that matters. Any help would be appreciated.
YES, the medical care will follow you. You are not locked into employment with a company because you got injured while working there.
8-05, Micro laminectomy/disectomy. 10-05 lumbar fusion L5-S1. 2-07 exploritory surgery. 12-07 medical implant, Spinal Cord Stimulator. now receiving SSDI. After going back to school, I received my degree as a mechanical engineer. What can I say, it was the only way I had to beat the system. 
Welcome to the forum, I am not sure but the present employer is responsble for the treatment. If you are recieving TTD payment they can stop when you resign, but needed care should continue until you reach MMI
May God send his angels to hold you in his arms
Thank you SO much! I wanted to find out before I find another job and have to give notice. I appreciate your help!
