There are many challenges associated with an on-the-job injury. In addition to the pain and suffering, you'll soon begin to worry about your future.
For example, you may have questions about whether you will ever be able to return to work. In this case, you may also have questions about how you will earn enough money to support yourself and your family.
Fortunately, you have options. For example, you can file a workers' compensation claim. From there, you can receive compensation until you are able to return to your job.
In the event that you are unable to work your previous job, you may also be able to receive compensation for vocational rehabilitation.
In short, this will help you acquire the skills you need to land a job in the future, despite your injury. With your new profession, you are in position to earn money and enjoy your new career.
