Injured workers often ask me whether their doctor releasing them to return to work means that their claim is over. The answer is absolutely not. And in fact, medical treatment and compensation both may be available as the claim moves forward. In fact, it’s important for you to continue to see the doctor, even after you’ve been released to return to work, because you never know what’s going to happen with your condition in the future. By continuing to see the doctor even after released to work, the claim will remain open, and you’ll be able to pursue benefits and, uh, treatment for anything that may arise in the future.
