    Worker's comp laws vary from state to state. Your state should have a worker's comp area on their Dept. of Labor portion of their website. Find it and start reading. Some states you would be fine. Others (generally right to work), you will be bent over and taking it hard.

    If you get another chance to make 72k, make sure to put away 5k of it to help you through situations like this. You'll be ready for the strike in 2023 too.

    Every state's Worker's Compesation laws are different. You need to contact your steward. Don't depend on the company to steer you in the right direction. To them you are now a liability and they will try to find a way to make you go away. THEY ARE NOT YOUR FRIEND.

    In my state, Worker's Compensation will pay for your lawyer. You should check to see if yours does too. It would be to your advantage to lawyer up and follow any advise that is given to you. I speak from experience. 13 years ago I was told that I will never work at UPS again by my center manager. He's gone. I'm still around.

    Good, then you needn't worry too much. Hope you are able to make enough not to have to dip into it too much. Get better soon.

    Yes, three times. You will be on workers comp if not already as long as you reported exactly when it happened. If not, good luck

    The workers comp insurance people(liberty mutual in my case) will assign you an adjuster who you can call and get answers to all your questions. I never once talked to the union about anything.
