Legal Question

Asked on: 4/27/12, 6:54 pm

I have very bad pain in my wrists & hands. I work on a computer all day long. I have worked on a computer for the past 19 years for the same company. Pain started a few months ago & has progressively gotten worse. I told my supervisor & she filed a injured on duty report & was sent to the company's dr. He said no computer work for 5 days. I used my sick time & vacation days to cover these days. Went to see dr again on 5th day, he said still no computer work for 2 more weeks. I am planning on working 1/2 days. To cover the rest of the 1/2 day I will be using vacation days. Dr said I can work with restrictions but no computer work. That is why I will be working the 1/2 days. I will be going to physicsl therapy 3 days a wk. I have not filed for workers compensation. Should I? I don't know if I will still be put on restrictions? Can I be working & still file for workers compensation?
