How Can I Prove That I Am Unable To Return To Work After a Workplace Injury?

  • By: Lisa J. Pezzano
  • Published: September 13, 2019

After an accident or injury occurs at work, it is insufficient to merely advise your supervisor that you do not feel well and need to take off a few days to recover from your injuries, to qualify for temporary disability benefits. Of course, if your company has a sick leave policy, you may be entitled to receive sick pay, even without a doctor’s note. However, you may not collect workers’ compensation temporary disability unless you receive an “out of work” note from a doctor, who confirms that your inability to work is related to the work accident. You should transmit the medical note to your employer, but be sure to keep a copy of it.
