    Has anyone went back to school part-time while dealing with workers comp?

    It depends on your work status report. If the report says you cant do anything, then you cant do anything. However, if you are released to sedentary work, and your employer cant accomodate, then you can go to school because the work status report says you can sit and work.


    Hope that helps

    Oh I forgot to mention that it also depends on your state, each state has different rules, but basically just go by your work status report.

    don't sign anything. i started to take some internet classes while i'm here doing nothing. wc told me they could help pay for them, buy me tools and such. i thought right on. turn's out, if i had signed the vc papers, it would have negated a future settlement for me never being able to return to the kind of work i did. they are sneaky, sneaky. i would have traded a potentially hundred's of thousand's of dollars settlement for a 1500 dollar internet course. be carefull

    They are sneaky nasty little people I agree. I can't do it right now i've got to get back to a point that I can somewhat function. But you've answered my question. Thanks. I've only done heavy work all my life and have no idea about office work so school is my only option.
