The simple answer is "Yes."
When your injury is serious enough that it requires you to be out of work for an extended period of time, there is a good chance that you will be placed under surveillance at some point in time. Surveillance is when a private detective hired by the insurance company will videotape you at your home, when you leave your home, when you go to stores, etc. Because you may be under surveillance, you should stay within any restriction the doctors have given you, assume that you are being followed and act accordingly.
