Are these people that say you won't get hired back with the same company? I would not pay attention to them. Have you been talkin with HR or anybody else in a position to give you a straight answer? That's who you need to talk with or your immediate supervisor.
It will depend on the company, the injury and your work history. Most companies will not want to lose a good employee over being injured at work unless they were seriously at fault, and most good companies would not mind getting rid of a poor worker.
Nope everyone at work has been nothing but nice and haven’t heard anything bad from hr or management. Mainly heard from other drivers and family members that once you are out on an injury for a good amount of time they will replace you and then find some reason to let you go once you got back. This is the first time I’ve been injured to the point where I’m on workers comp so I had no clue.

Your statement above is like people coming in here, telling us they have heard that Swift, JB Hunt, England, etc are bad companies because of what they heard or read online. The only ones that matter are managers in your chain of command. If your managers are good with you so far, don't worry what others say. There are rules for injuries on the job and if you get returned to work with or without restrictions, by your doctor, your HR and other managers will follow the law. Don't sweat it....just get healed and fit to work.

Hey guys, Welp I was Unloading and ended up getting ran over by a skid steer a while back (16 weeks ago) and still have 2 more months of recovery to go. (Tore my Achilles heel on my gas pedal foot) bad combination.
But I wanted to get y’all’s opinion I have about 75% of the people I talk to telling me I won’t have a job when I go back (that they will find a reason to get rid of me) and some saying I might. What do you all think should I start looking.
