Leaving a Job Due to a Workplace Injury While Still Under a Doctor's Care
I am considering leaving my current job due to an injury received on the job that is interfering with my ability to do my job there. I am still under doctors care for injury and looking at possible surgery. If I leave this job to go to another job where this injury doesn't hamper job performance, is the WC insurance still responsible for my medical care on this injury???

In a perfect world yes, but....
Quoting Dee Jay
They'll claim this new job is exaggerating your injury and eventually leave you high and dry.
It's not a good idea to change employers with an open comp claim, it will complicate if not jeopardize your case.
