    Default Work-Related Injury

    If you have recovered well enough such that your doctor permits you to return to work, your preference to return at a later date is not likely to be respected by your employer. You're not entitled to worker's compensation benefits for voluntary absences from work, and you can be medically able to return to work even before you're at 100% of your pre-accident condition.
