Work-Related Injury

Your exam shows that you probably have a work-related injury. You must let your employer know about your condition as soon as you can.

You have been given instructions for your specific injury. Be sure to follow them. Your return to partial or regular job duties depends upon what your caregiver or a recommended specialist finds when you are examined again. If suggested restrictions are not followed and/or you have not completed the recommended follow-up, there is a risk for lengthy or permanent problems. This is important both to you and to your employer.
