If I received unemployment after my work injury, does that affect my claim for lost wages?

Possibly.

If you claim your period of unemployment as time off for the work injury, then it is possible that you may not receive temporary total disability benefits for this same period of time. In other words, worker’s compensation will not pay you more than the difference, if any, between what you were paid through unemployment and what you should have been paid through worker’s compensation.
