A: Talk to an attorney certified as a specialist in workers compensation law immediately. You should be getting workers compensation benefits, not unemployment compensation benefits, if you were injured at work. Good luck!
A: You should have received a document accepting or denying your claim within 21 days of providing your employer with notice. It has been more than 6 months, so I seriously doubt your employer is going to do anything on their own. Contact a local workers' compensation lawyer in regard to filing a Claim Petition.
