These Provisions Were Put into Place in Order to Get You Back to Work as Soon as Medically Possible
Studies have shown that the longer you stay off work, the less likely you are to go back. This leads to wage loss and lower quality of life. Permanent disability benefits will never make up for the money lost by not returning to work. As a result, these provisions were put into place in order to get you back to work as soon as medically possible. For some this may not be possible. In those cases, an advocate or information & assistance officer should be consulted if the situation is complex.

When handling your work injury case, nothing matters more than the honest truth. Nothing. You must be straightforward and honest about your case. I have seen many instances where a client will sugarcoat their injury and the courts throw out the case. Why? All because they were not honest from the get-go.
If you've been injured on the job, you probably have a ton of questions. I understand. You are concerned about your family and your livelihood. My suggestion is the next step you should take before anything else is to read my book, Win Your Injury Case. I wrote it to help folks like you, good people who got hurt on the job. You can order a free copy and I will cover the shipping too.
