A: You get put in Workers Compensation benefits if you are entitled to them. If you are recovering from your injury while treating and cannot compete in the open labor market while you recover you get Total Temporary Disability benefits (2/3 of your paycheck before taxes). If you reached maximum medical improvement you get Permanent Disability up to the point of your % of disability. Talk to a WC attorney to help you guide you and protect your rights. Good Luck
