If I Return to Work After a Work-Related Injury But Work Part-Time Only or Make Less Money, Am I Still Entitled to Workers' Comp Benefits?

YES, so long as your decreased paycheck is because of your work-related injury, meaning that you can only now work part time or in a different position because of your work injury.  You will need medical reports saying you have work restrictions, BUT you will be able to receive 2/3 of the difference between what you used to make prior to the accident and what you are making now up to the statutory maximum rate of benefits for your date of injury.
