My husband suffered an injury at work due to a fall back in November he has been receiving benefits since February because the company said that they could not give him modified work. As of today he has been terminated by the company and per doctor he is still on modified work. The insurance company says that he will no longer receive benefits. It is my understanding that injured employees who have not been completely released can not seek employment with another company. And if the company cannot accommodate him the injured employee should continue to get benefits.
There are many types of personal injuries for which financial damages can be awarded, including physical, emotional, and psychological injuries.

Employees can sue for damages if they’ve suffered work-related injuries. These lawsuits are separate from workers’ compensation and cover more kinds of injury.
