After an injury at work, many employees essentially consider quitting their jobs. If you have an open workers’ compensation claim you are most likely receiving benefits, whether is medical benefits, wage benefits, or disability benefits.
If the injured victim decides to terminate his or her employment the medical benefits will be continued under workers’ compensation. It is his or her right to receive medical benefits even if you are unemployed, work in another job or decide to relocate to another state.
Something that would change in your workers’ compensation case if you quit your job is the injured victim’s eligibility on wage benefits or disability benefits. The insurance companies would try to not pay anything to the injured victim because he or she voluntarily limited his or her income and they shouldn’t have to pay because of the injured victims’ choices.
