Hello All !

I have a question that hopefully someone out there has experienced and or can answer... I am currently in middle of work comp injury.. I had surgery went back to work and I have not settled case. I have not found it neccesary to hire lawyer yet... Anyway, I am looking into another job ... I guess its turned into more than one question ! Has anyone changed jobs while in middle of comp case ? How was the outcome regarding insurance and work comp ? Any feedback would be much appreciated !


  • My only concern is if you change jobs and are unlikely to perform the job, you may risk work comp paying you any future disability money. I'm not sure what your injury is or how bad it is but any disability ratings you have must be reported to your new employer. Although they can't discriminate in hiring you, they can find other reasons for not hiring. I have seen a couple members who have found other employment and were unable to do the work and were released. Work comp said they themselves took them out of the open labor market. I would make a phone call to your state offices and get their advice regarding the matter. Also most states have free legal information that may help you. Good luck on the job search and keep us posted it how it works out.
