I fell at work and got 20 stitches in my arm. Do I wait until the stitches come out and the WC doctor releases me before returning to work?

Your decision regarding returning to work is mostly based upon the opinion of your treating physician. If he believes you can return to work in some capacity and your employer is able to provide work within his or her restrictions then you return.
Call me to discuss your case. More information is needed, including whether you suffered any injuries besides the laceration requiring the stitches. Consultation is free. 215-240-7565
