It is also important to seek medical attention for your injuries. You should see a doctor as soon as possible after the accident. Be sure to keep all of your medical records and documentation of your injuries. This will be important when filing your claim.
You will need to prove that your injuries were caused by your job in order to receive benefits. You will need to show that you were performing your job duties at the time of the accident and that the accident was due to no fault of your own.

Temporary total compensation termination
If you are receiving Temporary Total Compensation (TTC), your benefits will end if you return to work full time before your injury is fully healed. If you return to work part time, your benefits will be reduced based on your earnings. There are further programs, including wage loss, that can help make up the difference in wages if you are only able to return part time, or are only able to obtain a less paying job.
