Usually your workers’ compensation benefits stop after you return to work. Af ter you reach maximum medical improvement, except for scheduled injuries as provided in Section 25-5-57(a)(3), when an injured worker returns to work at a wage equal to or greater than the worker’s pre-injury wage, the worker’s permanent partial disability rating shall be equal to his or her physical impairment and the court shall not consider any evidence of vocational disability. But if the employee has lost his or her employment under certain circumstances within 300 weeks from the date of injur y, an employee may petition a court within two years thereof for reconsideration of his or her permanent partial disability rating.
