I was injured at work. I broke my anle and injured my knee falling in a hole. I was released to light duty, still on crutches. I have arthritis in both knees and my injured knee is causing occasional severe pain, and my good knee is swelling up due to putting all the weight on it. My ortho doctor also treated me for my arthritis and when I mentioned the pain, they stated it was not due to workers comp injury. Aparently between initial visit at emergency who wrote down knee/ankle and wc adjuster, my ortho doctor has down just ankle injury. I have a few questions: if an existing condition es agrevated by my injury should it be covered? If I call out from light duty because I am having problems
walking and want to rest my other knee, do I get any wc since i am back to work? If they send me to physical therepay do I get any compensation for that time off work?
