Can you receive reimbursement pay from workmans comp if you are only off work for a week due to a slip and fall?

It will depend on your state's worker's comp law. Each state varies. Each Workers comp agency has a webpage to answer your question. If you had medical bills from the fall, Workers comp will usually cover the medical cost if you filed a report with the employer when it happened.

Is it possible to talk to someone from your company that covered you under workmans comp? I'd start there, but I found many years ago that they can be outrageous. Don't let anyone intimidate you! If you have any trouble, contact a lawyer immediatly. Good Luck.

no, not legally so make sure you do every thing by the book in your new dept. and keep records (dates and times)of any thing you find suspicious regarding your employers behavior towards you. he/she might be setting you up for a fall to fire you in a legal manner. and remember the dept of labor is there for this reason You can not be fired for being on workmans comp but you can be fired for not doing your job tasks according to company guidelines within your light duty limits. For instance if you continually come in late to work or are absent you can be fired as this has nothing to do with the workmans comp.

You normally do not get a settlement from workman's comp, you are usually treated and they cover the cost through your workman's comp insurance. Depending on the state you live in, once you have agreed to be treated through workman's comp, you can no longer legally sue your employer.
