I was involved in a car accident on July 11 where I sustained a concussion, severe whiplash and bruised ribs. My doctor wants for me to have more physical therapy before I return to work or if the condition does't get better, to file for disability. I am presently receiving short term disability payments through my employer's insurance company. Provided I do get better and the doctor releases me with the condition that I cannot lift anything, WorkOne told me that this would have to go by a claims deputy and that I may not get unemployment due to the work restriction. I could do a desk job as long as it doesn't require any heavy lifting. So need to know my rights. Thank you.
