I was in a car accident in Dec 08. I had severe internal injuries and a knee injury that wasnt diagnosed for 12 weeks after the accident. The internal injuries healed, however the knee has not. I returned to work for 6 weeks in June, and then had surgery in late July on the knee. The knee is unfixable, and I cannot kneel, jump, squat, etc. The doctor released me for full duty in late November, as I had reached MMI. I reported back to work, and they laid me off the same day as I was released for full duty. Then he ordered a functional capacity test, that listed several limitations as to what I cannot do, such as kneel, crouch, crawl, etc. I build commercial buildings, and a large part of my job is doing the above items. He revised my return to work with limitations... now what? Should I be getting workers comp? or drawing unemployment? I do have an attorney for the auto accident, but not for the workers comp. However, I am in the process of getting one to review the proceedings. I also applied for SSDI, but I am sure I wont get that. I am not disabled, I just wont be able to return to my former job I dont think. Is workers comp still responsible for any pay difference since I have permanent restrictions?
