If you can't work due to a disability that is only temprary can you make a claim ?
I am unable to use right hand and I am right handed. My Occupational Therapist told me to keep arm in splint and don't use. I have an advanced case of tennis elbow. They are doing OT first then most likely surgery, as a nurse I need my R hand to do dressings and Med's and charting. I don't know what to do..Please if any one has any suggestions I will really appreciate it. Thank You. This injury is not from working.

You can apply and see what happensp it takes so many weeks for it to go through anyway- sometimes 2-3 years- it varies- ugh!! Also getting a md 's dx of disability is needed- D

First, I don't see Tennis Elbow as a 'Disability' in the more classic meaning. That is an injury, not a disability (by claims definition) Not occurring at work also bars you from any Workman's Comp. It's called life. Should I have to pay to have you live more comfortably. I get the feeling that if you are really a nurse (RN) and not one of the many other positions that are not REALLY nurses, but have nurse somewhere in their title, so you just say nurse to sound more professional, that you make more money than me, and that you should have good health care benefits. I, however, spend wisely and save money, and could support myself for a few months if need be. Is there no work that the Hospital could give you that is 'light-duty', or would those jobs be beneath you?

If the injury was not caused during working you can not claim compensation. Perhaps you can baby sit if you can to manage while recovering.

You should check your policy booklet from work and find out what it covers. Some employers carry short term disability and you could draw on that until you can return to work.

You make too much money to apply for any kind of aid. You could call your HR department too and find out immediately.

Yes, ask your doctor to put you on temporary disability. I have a friend, who is on it for chronic ear aches. She has to have surgery to have tubes replaced in her ears and such.So you can get disability. It will not be your nurses salary, but will help!

Contact a Union or Guild if you have one,if you are off long enough it could go into a disability even if its temporary and you are in no pay status you might qualify for unemployment. You might be able to file a claim though Labor and Industry but I think it has to be work related, but a phone call to them would answer that

Yes U can put the claim in ASAP you'll get your answer within a week.Good Luck

Where you injury was from working or not. If you have medical insurance, you HMO should have temporary disability. In most cases it is not very much. But it beats nothing. However, if you don't have medical ins., I a afraid that most states disability will not okay monies for something that is temporary. That disability is reserved for the permanently disabled. I know it is not right but it is the truth. Anyway it usually you so long to get it, you will probably be back at work by the time you would have been cleared to receive it. May God Bless
