Can I get reimbursed for time taken off for doctor appointments related to my work injury?

A: Yes, but you are required to try to schedule the medical appointments around your work hours if you can. Within reason, you should be able to work at least part of your normal shift before or after a medical appointment. However, if you cannot schedule the appointment around your work schedule, you are entitled to benefits for the time you miss from work.
